( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I picked 'Zaxo' as an IRC handle about six years ago, made up out of thin air. I've used it there, here, and several other places since. I've even used it in copyright declarations a few times.

It has no intrinsic meaning. I chose it for its brevity, the unlikeliness of nick collisions, and for its clownish tone. I wanted to avoid boastful, self-important, pompous kinds of words.

It does seem to evoke different things to different people, which I enjoy a lot. The other day, one French monk surprised me with a new one, that it's a phonetic anagram of h4X0rZ. It's often taken to be a household product (Europeans tend to think toothpaste; Americans, drain cleaner). A zax is a combination hatchet and pick used by slaters, but I've never used one. I have played both Zaxxon and saxophone.

I'm glad you asked this. I've enjoyed reading the answers.

After Compline,
Zaxo

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
