Update: thanks to a benevolent god, I've changed from "fever" to my for real username. But for old times' sake...

The Monastery was the first place I ever used this moniker strictly speaking, although there is a history to it. It began in a discussion when I was an editor at the IU Knowledge Base regarding the examples we used on our search tips page to describe improper searches. Being a technical database, searches for course listings and basketball scores were common examples of what not to look for. We needed a change though, and our chief requested submissions for new examples. Mine were: "How much are tickets to see Def Leppard playing at Deer Creek on July 19?", and "What if I've been diagnosed with hemorrhagic fever?"

About a year later I discovered Quake 3 Arena and after becoming agitated with the atrocious spelling during chat (yes I'm a bastard like that) I changed my nick to 'Hemorrhagic Fever'. Subsequently I was referred to most often as 'Hemm' (which reminded me of a Samuel Beckett character, but not in a good way (as if there even is a good way to feel like a Beckett character!)), 'Hemurageck' (and variations), and just plain old 'fever'.

Now previous to joining the Monastery I'd tried various nicknames that meaned something important about me, but upon reflection they all seemed, well, retarded. Therefore, I chose to utilize fever here for its simplicity and nonsignificance. I wonder why I never considered 'Hemurageck' tho? :^p

Updated to correct spelling -- d'oh!
