Yes, sauoq is bones upside down. If it isn't, you aren't using a proper font.

Once upon a time I used "bones" but found myself fighting for it on IRC. Then I noticed I could turn it upside down and... voila! A nick no one else wanted.

Oh, "bones," in this case, is a shortening of "J-Bones" which is a nickname I've had since I was about 2 years old. I never used "J-Bones" as a username because I wanted something short and all lowercase with no punctuation. Somehow, "jbones" didn't look right to me.

So, where did "J-Bones" come from in the first place? Well, a friend of the family was an excellent amateur guitarist and folk singer. I used to love it when he sang Mr. Bojangles but I somehow thought it was Mr. Bonejangles instead. That and the fact that my real name begins with a "J" led to the nickname "J-Bones." My parents still call me by that affectionate sobriquet on occasion even now, 30 or so years later.
