I remember me reading Create A New User

I was wondering what name to choose for my first online community: I've already decided that online communities were not for me but I made an exception for perlmonks. The exception is valid after many years.
I never considered to use my real name or part of it: as above stated this comes from a puerile sentiment: I had this exactly! The alter ego on the Net was more appealing than show myself. This is puerile but it's also part of the game: mimicry is a fundamental part of games: let's pretend..
So what name to choose for myself, a middle age history student, a (sometimes international) volunteer worker, bricklayer and painter landed on the IT field for hazard? in a monastery too..
discĭpŭlus discĭpŭli noun 2nd declension masculine:
- follower, disciple
- student, pupil, trainee
The name is a forecast (nomen omen
will never be a master. I'm here to learn, and possibly help younger than me students.
I was called Disciplus and even Disci+ but please note that -ulus is a diminutive form, in this case of discens past participle of disco (if you read Eatalian..).
There are no rules, there are no thumbs..
Reinvent the wheel, then learn The Wheel; may be one day you reinvent one of THE WHEELS.
