Sorry to toss a three year old thread back up on top, but this was a really great read at 4:30 AM CST.

I am starting to give up on the banal practice of nicknames and am going back to the historically banal naming scheme and using my real name in my e-mail usernames. However, Diakoneo has some meaning to me.

I play an on-line WWII massive-multiplayer game. When I first started, I was slogging through the usual nicks trying to find a decent one, when I saw that 'Pippin' hadn't been taken. Tired of searching for more, I grabbed it. I worked my way up through the ranks (RAF Commander then BEF Theater Chief of Staff) but eventually an opportunity at my church ate up all my time. So I dropped out of the High Command entirely and decided I needed a clean break.

Thinking on my real life position, I came across the Greek word "Diakoneo", which (at least in Biblical New Testament terms) means 'One who serves'. It's never taken on any of the boards I frequent, so I'm going to hold onto it until I completely give in the the 'first initial/first name - full last name' method of signing in.

Even n00b-ier to Perl

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
