        WW wasn't formed until 1989, so it was probably a fore runner. I seem to remember he was in some sort of position in the water industry in the 1960's

          Recall working with a chap from Thailand or similar, he used to joke about his middle name Poon F*K Su.

              There's a dentist near me called Weh. (German for sore). I have a colleague called Fux, and I once worked with an Indian called Kautulip. He soon modified it to Kauship.

                    Nope.

                    It was on the US* telephone list of Siliconix.
