You wouldn't happen to be the /dev/null responsible for the The Internet Worm of 1988, would you?

The worm mimics a remote SMTP connection, feeding in /dev/null as the name of the sender
It's the only other time I can recall seeing /dev/null used as a moniker. ;-)

    No, but I read about that guy in "The Cuckoo's Egg". You should check that book out if you haven't yet. One of the best "computer geek" books I've ever read.
