Danny DeVito lived just a couple of miles from my Mom's house when she was younger. She met him before he became an actor...he literally went to Hollywood with nothing and became something...

Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit / XP Home sp3

Mine comes from my last name Faber. In high school,or when racing, everyone would say stuff like hey have you seen thefabe,or here comes thefabe. But when around all of them they would just call me Fabe. So I use it except on twitter someone else has it. So I add 711 which was the second number A.M.A. issued me after my first year of motocross. My first number issued was 1597 so I placed high enough the second year to earn the 711 plate. Which I used even when I was ranked 8th in the state with C.M.C.. Blah blah blah.

I have nothing to do, so I decided to tell why I'm also called Larry Laffer as you can see from my avatar. I didn't want to use the name here; already when registering myself here I decided I want to be taken serious, I want to use my real name. The story is quite long, but I can not tell it otherwise.

"Beloved child has many names", according to an old Finnish saying

My ex-wives (three) call me shortly Idiootti, Idiot in English or Tyhmä, Stupid in English. Good names, nothing against. And really deserved!

Sierra OnLine, an American computer game publisher, published a game called "Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards" in 1987. It was the first of a successful series of computer games introducing a beer and whisky loving computer nerd called Larry Laffer, seeking for female companionship in (several) wrong places. Larry´s movements were controlled with a mouse. If the player wanted Larry to do something like pick something up or sit or say something to other characters in the game, you had to type your instructions. Maybe this picture from the first Larry-game explains it better:

The game found it´s way to Finland just before Christmas of -87, I got mine early 1988. First weekend I played it through and the rest happened almost automatically: my mates and friends started to ask me about game tips. How to find a certain object Larry was supposed to find to advance in the game and so on.

Keep in mind that a graphical computer game was something special then. This game used 16 colors and 320*240 graphics. We had Amigas, Ataris and Commodore 64:s; IBM had published the first PC-computer only 5 years earlier but nobody could afford it, the price was (in Finland, that is) about 25000 Finnish marks, when a normal worker was making about 3000 marks a month. "Leisuresuit Larry Laffer" (Teryleenipuku Larry in Finnish) was almost instantly a cult.

I do not remember who was the first person to call me Larry. I didn´t like it at first; who likes to be named after a beer licking womanizer who is all the time on the run, chased by the police? I got the name and it stayed, whether I liked it or not.

Today I am OK with the name. When I meet new people socially outside my professional life I present myself as Larry. My blog carries this name, as well as my other private web projects and albums.

Larry Laffer a.k.a. Kari
