atoi on a non-numeral will (should) return a 0, thus, as the person to 
respond previous to this quoted message said, you'll probably get 0 
unless they have a number in their name.

I might suggest -- oh -- id numbers?

You have to use them for something, and I've been finding more than the 
REPLY usage of it helpful.  (ie., I have items that are loaded saving the 
id number of the immortal whom loaded it, I can then catch any cheating
