It's really interesting to see how people got their "handles/nicks".

Lets see... Back around 88 or 89, I got my first modem, and began the BBS scene. Back then, like most usual users, I used a character name from a book I had read, "Unbeliever" from the Steven R Donaldson books. I kept that name for quite some time, but like most, found it "too mass market". It's interesting to note though, I did keep that alias for almost 10 years. I dropped it in 1999 when I adopted "LazerRed" (yeah, mis-spelling and all). I'd been pretty heavy into motorcycles for a few years, and I finally bought a new Harley. My FXDWG was two tone lazerred perl & black. So, I dropped the old name in favor of a less widespread LazerRed.

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.
