in reply to Name Space

My nick was generated automatically on the universtiy unix system as I started my CS degree. It is a contraction of my first first-name and an asciification of the start of my last last-name. (I think my parents thought giving me two first- and last-names was some kind of bonus...)

The contraction is entirely logical, but pernod is also the brand name of a rather well-known french aperitif of the pastis type. I had never made the connection myself, so I've hung on to this nick ever since.

The fact that I don't really like Pernod (or any type of pastis) at all is of no importance, though. I much prefer dry vermouths ;)
