Oh thanks for the link  ;D
Please don't be offended by my nickname 'Mortality'
As to its history it was the name of a character I played in an online game called 'Everquest'
The character 'Mortality Rate' was a female Dark Elf Necromancer, the name seemed apt at the time and has been used alot by me over the years.

I had an email not long ago and I think it said the seeds would be available from April 1st.  But I don't know if you can a apply for them before that.
