Well spotted, and good news.

Btw, the italics are putting me in touch with a program-maker who's interested in Flixboro. Watch this space.

I don't know where he's coming from.
I have read some of Borges' work (assuming he means the Argentinian poet), but I'm not in any sense a fan and I can't see where any of my hootoo stuff links up, except for one really tenuous connection : Borges wrote some stories involving Elias Loennrot, who was the Finnish ethnographer who collected and assembled the folk-rhyme that forms the Kalevala. Ilmarinen (the Primal Smith, and one of the Pier's minor characters) is from the Kalevala.
As for Nabakov, I haven't read any and could only name one work (Lolita). Seeing James Mason in the film is as close as I get to Nabakov.
Still, it's nice to be read at all. For that, I'm quite happy to put up with the inference that I'm mildly derivative...
