The Quest for Truth - Coming Mid-2008... or is it?

Upon looking at this man's face, I had realized that he must have lied to us, and that his name really couldn't have been Andre Victor.  I took my search to Google, searching for a more probable name for this man - Neil.

20+ pages in the Google Image Search, I saw it:  Neil's face, staring right at me.  The URL redirection can be found here.  But something wasn't right:

Pritchard:  "What's wrong with v1ctor's name being Neil?"
cha0s:  "The fact that it's Andre?"

He has a good point.  Something was wrong.  I had to do more research.  I looked back to the roots of my search.  Before v1ctor's picture, there was v1ctor.  Who WAS v1ctor?  After several seconds of searching, I found him - v1ctor was really Andre Victor.  A likely story.  Likely enough for no one to have questioned it, but me:

Andre Victor is an anagram for v1ctor's REAL name:  Nader Crivot.  While Neil is still more probably in my mind, Nader Crivot both looks and sounds like v1ctor's picture - Using the name Andre Victor has been a way for v1ctor to keep his anonymity on the internet and contribute to FreeBASIC with his Pen Name.

In order to confirm this, I'm off to the Library of Brazil next week in order to get some answers from a few librarians, if you know what I mean.  It won't be easy, and yes, we may have intercourse - But it'll be worth it.


See You In Three Months,
Pritchard


Coming to You, Mid-2008.
