in reply to Name Space
I first had to think up a screen name while I was in the dorms at university. I had just connected my new computer to the network, and I had to pick a name for the PC. I decided to pick a memorable character from the recently completed Ringworld trilogy, by Larry Niven.
Then I found Slashdot, and Kuro5hin, and started to spend quite a lot of time online. I used my computer's name just for fun. To make my life easier, and because it seemed honest, I use the same nick at every site I join.Find me elsewhere:
