Sure - the literal translation can mean 'one who hails from a bay', however, the original term, 'adh fara i viking' (sorry, I can't seem to get the old Norse letters to /.) conveyed the meaning 'to go on a sailing trip, raiding coastal villages in foreign parts, and possibly returning a wealthy man'.

Piracy is more about raiding ships, I suppose, something that was generally seen as impractical in those times - the only ships that had anything of worth were chock full of vikings anyway.

Why read the article when you get a summary on Slashdot, anyway?

If you do something right once, someone will ask you to do it again.
