Why "g0n"

It never occured to me that it could look like leetspeak (I wonder if it gets through spam filters). Quite simply, g0n.net was the nicest of the 3 letter domain names I found, and I wanted a really short domain name to refer to my home server. After that I figured it was an easily remembered username. Boring really. Sorry.

    Everytime I see your username, I think of a guy I knew in college from Oregon. This man accumulated nicknames like some people accumulate spare change. He picked up a new one when we met this girl at a party who introduced herself as "Tina from Argentina".

    In the spirit of the moment, somebody said "You should call yourself 'Gon from Oregon'!", and it stuck. College is funny like that.

    Now whenever I read g0n my mind goes "g0n... (fromoregon)".

[oiskuu]: E.g. Re^3: Big thank you to the Perl community. is surely dry humor (not mine). Don't they teach humor in german schools!?

[LanX]: But reu germans have no humor, better to refrain from this site till the troll is gone...
[LanX]: true
