Heya, Omphalos. Just wanted to point out a funny inter-lingvistic twist about your nick. Since I first saw your nickname, on the DN board, I thought about a phrase in my native language, romanian: "om fălos" (two words) is very close to the pronunciacion of "Omphalos", the only difference being "ă", which sounds more like the "e" in "summer" (my english phonetics knowledge isn't good enough for me to present a decent example, sorry).
Oh, yeah, you're gonna like this
"om fălos" means "proud man"
, where om = man and fălos = proud (this is more of a regionalism, there's another word more commonly used for "proud").
