Back in 1994, I didn't have a nickname, like
the others in my engineering school. I felt I had to
have one, to sign my articles in the school paper.
Plus it was cool to have one.
Since I loved books, and had grown a rather long
goatee beard, I chose "BooK" (capital "B", capital
"K"), whith the following explanation: "En anglais
ça se prononce 'bouc', et en français ça veut dire
livre.". Which you could translate as: "In
English it pronounces 'bouc' (goatee in English), and
in French, it means 'book'".
Naturally, the goatee didn't last, since several
girlfriends had me cut it and not grow it back.
But most of my friends know me by this name, and I am
quite used to it.
I just have to be quick when a new online service
opens, to be the first one to registrer my nick.
This is the reason why I wish I had chosen a less
common word for a handle!
