Inaugural Post

Without much fanfare, the initial post to Assymetric Conversion was published.

The promises of future posts, however, loom moderately large on the horizon.

As far as I know, my family name is the Christian name given to my great-great grandfather, on my mother's side, Old Man Jack. It is also my mother's maiden name and, yes, I am a literal bastard -- a heathen, too. My first name is that of my great-grandfather on my father's side. John McIvor was a company man, a Hudson's Bay company man. Apparently, Fort McMurray was to be named after him until he was accused of cannibalism due to his close relationship with the natives of the area. Whether this is true, I don't know. Either way, it's not short for anything and the standard nickname for it is already my last name -- so just call me John. My middle name is that of my uncle on my mother's side, her baby brother, Al. He's a good man.

Maybe I'll tell you about my parents next time, but until then:
