in reply to Name Space

When I first got Internet access, I wanted the screen name "MrNobody" but 1023 people had already taken it. My ISP limited screen names to 10 characters, so I got "MrNobo1024". I ended up using that same name everywhere else for consistancy.

-- MrNobo1024

    2^10 is a pretty cool number in its own right, though...
