+
+<h2 id="what">“Rindolf” - Shlomi Fish’s Nickname</h2>
+
+<p>
+I, Shlomi Fish, have decided to allow people on IRC (= Internet Relay Chat) and
+outside to call me
+“Rindolf”, due to the fact that some non-Hebrew inclined people have problems
+with my private name - “Shlomi” (which means “Shalom-ful”, “My Shalom” or
+the “Shalom of Jehuvah” in Hebrew, where “Shalom” means “well-being”, “peace”,
+“serenity”, “tranquility”, “harmony”, “welfare” and is derived from
+<a href="http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Appendix:Proto-Semitic/%C5%A1al%C4%81m-">a
+proto-Semitic root</a>). Some common pet names for Rindolf include “Rin”,
+“Rinny”, “Rindy”, “Rinfold”, etc.

+
+<p>
+Rindolf was a dwarven warrior that Shlomi played in an
+<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Editions_of_Dungeons_%26_Dragons#Advanced_Dungeons_.26_Dragons_2nd_edition">AD&amp;D 2nd edition</a> session. Fish
+came up with this name as appropriate for a dwarf probably out of thinking of
+other common Germanic names such as
+<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Randolph_%28given_name%29">Randolph</a>
+(literally Shield+Wolf) or
+<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rudolph_%28name%29">Rudolph</a> (literally
+famous wolf), and it had a nice ring to it. Rindolf ended up becoming the young
+Mr. Fish’s favourite Role-playing-games character of all time, but then
+ended up dying in a battle with a
+<a href="http://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/SRD:Doppelganger">Doppleganger</a>, in
+what was the Broken Shaft’s Adventuring Company best adventure (but a deadly
+one), in part due to a misunderstanding between him and the game master. This
+death proved to be a big shock on me (= Shlomi), and part of me felt guilty
+about the death of my character which I felt was not real enough to warrant
+grieving on. I was wrong.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+Later on, after first using the nickname “dori” and then switching to “gloin”
+(= two of the Dwarves from Tolkien’s
+<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hobbit"><i>The Hobbit</i></a>)
+I settled on “rindolf”, which I felt was the most original nickname, and part
+of my individuality.
