For those wondering about the name: it's a bit of family trivia. In the village my grandfather grew up in -- coincidentally named ``Roald'', near Aalesund in Norway -- there's an old monument to a Viking chieftain named Gungeralv, who is supposed to have conquered Normandy. I think this is the guy in the history books as 'Rollo' -- Roald, Rollo, get it? If so, he founded the Duchy of Normandy in 911 AD.

Anyway, don't mess with me. My ancestors could beat up your ancestors.
