That's the tough part, doing it in an appropriate manner.

That's perfect.  Just what I was looking for.  The problem is, how to
intergrate it into my Klingon persona without being too abrupt.  I'm a
pretty firm believer in "if you use a name for a good while you're better
off sticking with it" and I do like my name but I just haven't been
satisfied lately seeing that it appears to be more Terran than Klingon.  I
think I'll stick the Klingon spelling up by my e-mail for a while but
still sign my posts the same.  I'm not sure how else to make the
transition.  It's definately going to be confusing on the newsgroup.

Oh my.  You should hear me try to pronounce it.  Or your name for that
matter.  Gun chewy.  :)  I'm working hard with Power Klingon though and I
think I'm improving my pronunciation.
