Writing a short note of thanks I pause, a doubt crossing my mind. "Ulrike IS a female name, isn't it?" I ask two (female) assistants. They THINK it is but aren't 100 per cent sure.

So I do a search on the internet, and am quickly assured that 'Ulrike' is 45,616 times more likely to be the name of a female than of a man.

Sometimes the web does remind you just how clever it is.
