( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
mine is relatively simple:
when i got hooked up to the internet the first time (back in greece...awww..i owe a lot of knowledge to the guys at magnet.gr), the admins decided to use the first 8 chars of my last name as a login. my last name is "von Schweinitz", and since the "von" is considered a title (sometimes - it's rather complicated!), they took the "schweini", and it kind stuck.
if you ever see a german speaking monk or cybernaut snickering at my handle, then you maybe interested in the fact that "schwein" is german for "pig".
just imagine how bored i am of stupid jokes about my last name.
every freakin' day.
but, actually, "schweini" could be read as "piggy", which makes the whole thing at least a bit cute (especially since i'm 2.05m tall).
what bugs me a lot is that there's this other "schweini" lurking around in the 'net somewhere...but some research turned out that his real last name is "schweinichen", which sounds even more ridiculous in german, so he's excused. :-)

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.
