Upon reflection I don't think Marika has a Kunich base. Marika
seems more like Serdar Argic to me. Argic was written in AWK,
which explains a lot.

In a post in another thread on one of the bicycles newsgroups, my author
temporarily indulged you by quoting BF, the line about guests and fish
howevr, my author was born in and lived in Philadelphia for most of her life
and went to Penn so she is bored by BF for the most part
