Wow... what a great read! I just ran across this node, so I guess I'll be the latest to extend it's life

More years ago than I want to admit, a group of friends and I got *really* into a Wil Vinton animated character that used to advertize for Domino's Pizza called 'The Noid'.

So, we created monikers for ourselves that we put on the backs of T-shirts, each reflecting our hobbies... with an airbrush of The Noid on the front. All of the names ended with 'Noid'.

Me, being the Star Trek geek of the group, became TrekNoid.

Years later, we've all grown out-of-it, and that should have been the end of it... but about 13 years ago, I'm sitting at the AOL User Registration page, and it's asking me for a login that hasn't been taken yet... and after trying 50 or so things, I remember my old nickname, and give it a shot... And since then, it's just been my name in any online forum I go to.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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.
