I am told it is expected that new members formalise their arrival with a bit of a "how's it going?". So here I am, a guy who writes now and then when there's something more important that he doesn't feel like doing. The name is one I've been using since about 2002. At the time I thought I was being very original, but I've since realised that Gilmed is basically Gilead, which appears in everything from the Bible to Stephen King, and Nackl probably comes from the chemical name of salt, NaCl. So there you have it. The Salt of the Earth is here, and if you're not wearing goggles, he might sting your eyes a little bit.
