Well, not that you asked, but here's my story. {NULE} (or nule which is just as fine by me) is a recent big change for me in online monikers for me. I used to exist as "gpf_me" (and still do) in the AIM world and a few other places.

I decided to procure for myself a domain name of my own and since was already taken, I started looking for the very shortest domain name I could get (that laziness thing). I couldn't find any cool three letter ones, so I started entering random combinations of four letters at directNIC. was available so I took it. I figure that it sounds reasonably interesting (pronounced like "fool" or "mule", not like NULL) and not too silly.

If you want to know what it means, I have a random acronym generator on my homepage that has a grand total of 1050 of the so far. A handfull of which even make sense or are amusing.

Take care,
