that that was me?
Also did you see the security issue with the l in your name? Sorry to be offtopic but it's quite serious.

Yes, hence "is a puppet" as one of the choices.

I sometimes get cryptic when option B is to get accusatory.

This does, however, support my proposal from February 2016, as my username on a growing number of other sites (PinoBatch) isn't quite as easy to impersonate using homoglyphs (the paypaI attack).*

You'd be a hard man to impersonate. I wouldn't worry too much.

True story: The first time I saw you post as Pino on slashdot, I immediately knew it was you just from the tone and writing style. I was thinking "clearly this is tepples, why's he using this other name?'

Hey, is your nick like OrlaIsADog or Orla_is_a_dog?
In my language (portuguese), "orla" is a part of the land near the sea, more or less like the beach.
Like the name Orlando, wich could mean someone is doing something called "orla", since the "ndo" is the gerund. :D

Also what difference does it make? Also https://youtu.be/j_TrBKt54qk

Gerund is a grammatical term.

That looks complicated. What difference does it make whether you you underscores or capitalisation?

Well, looks like I was not very clear again... :oops:
Is Orla the name of the dog?
I know grammar is a pretty complicated topic, specially when like me, you're trying to learn or practice a different language than your mother language.
I find many foreign languages similarities funny. :)
With this stated, the word "orla" in my language means a part of land near the beach, sorry I didn't find a correct word to say that yet, but it should be like edge, border, edging or something similar.

The funny part about the name Orlando is that to me is sounds like someone is edgeing, bordering or edgeing(ing?).
I mean, the people is doing the action of the verb "orla", that actually is not a verb, but a noum.
I hope I have not confused things more than cleared, but by the way, it's just a little not-so-funny random joke.
Hope no one gets angry or offended with this. :mrgreen:

From your description, it looks like the word you're seeking might be seafront, waterfront, maybe rim? i'd be lost on the nuances between them but the last suggestion sounds more geographically contextualized to me, and both former sounds more casual. /disclaimer: english as 2nd language, evidently.

"Shore" is the English word por the Portuguese "orla", AFAIK.
