Sometimes a chip is just a Chip.

In a surreal moment sometime in the 80s, Time magazine named the computer as their Man Of the Year. The cover showed a generic CRT display reading something like this:

HELLO.
MY NAME IS CHIP.
I WILL CHANGE YOUR FUTURE.

I sometimes wonder at how significant my name was in my finding this excellently relevant career.

[ambrus]: MLX: if it's a work email, then it's probably not Uncle Sam that matters, but what the account managing server at work thinks your name is. Those can differ. For example, we've had two co-workers with identical real name at one point,
[ambrus]: so one got a stupid suffix in the email account (people have email address based on their real name here usually).
