Fischer is the pen name I use. I added “zed” because although I live in Canada,  I spent the first 17 years of my life in Britain. I wasn’t particularly a fan of the band, but I like the way it went together. Somehow when I was registering the blog I screwed up the URL and it ended up as

    Have a happy start of 2011.
