    ummm, a couple of years ago some friends started to call me "The Postscript Doctor". A while after that it was just "The Doctor".

    I got so used to my nickname that I started to use it in a short version. doxx

    Leonis is one of the characters in my comic story.

    However I am now considering changing my user name.....since Leonis is no longer the most important character in my newly revised story.........

    ...'cause its my name. middle name to be exact, but i get called by it a lot. my parents couldn't decide to call me by my first name (quintana) or middle name when i was little, so they would use both. roo is more of a pet name now, as only friends and family use it.

    I am simply stunned by all this commotion about names.

    MANDO is the diminutive of Armando and LUX comes from my fascination with lighting (as in photography).

    BTW, Lux means: The International System unit of illumination, equal to one lumen per square meter.

    murbot - great story <img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughing]" />

    well i'm curious ;p and on the outskirts rather than urban or rural, so the contraction seemed apt

    seemed like a good idea at the time

    Sadly no, I am a Junior in State College High School. I will get to Penn State eventually and hopefully double major in Business Marketing and Information Sciences and Technology (IST). PSU is the leading IST school in the nation with a new $55 million building.

    <a href="http://ist.psu.edu/building/index.cfm"; target="_blank">Look at the building and program info here, it's pretty amazing.</a>

    I am a chemical engineer. VanDeWaals forces are the weak attractive forces bewteen molecules caused by an induced dipole. Yes...way geeky...but I used it for my IM screen name..so it seemed logical to keep it when I registered here.

    I was actually going to dream up a Murbot kinda story involving a Volkswagon bus and a freaky Dutch girl...

    i tried to think up a good story, like mihr's, but i have not.

    so, here's a half assed unfunny "story":

    i wish i was a headlight on a northbound train. i'd shine my light in the cool, colorado rain... ALL penquins are waterbirds, but not ALL waterbirds are penquins: this is an intrinsic fact of life, which is intrinsic to the life it lives...

    i'm a freak, odd in many was. and to differentiate me from the narly freaks, i'm the Freak. and since i hate speeling, and such, i changed "the" wiff "thuh". and, in conclusion, i am legally opposed to spaces in my nomer.

    i've gone by other handles in my tenure as a geek. none were very funny tho. so i kept up wiff thuhFreak.

    My hero is Michelangelo Buonarotti, renaissance artist, the greatest architect who ever lived. Calling myself "Michelangelo" seemed more pompous than deferential though. Given that and my low self-esteem, I've dubbed myself "BuonRotto" which literally means "well-broken" in Italian. (As a side story, Michelangelo had his nose broken in his early adolescence and it never set right again.) I'm not Italian in case you're thinking that. I did spend half a year in Rome during college though, but my Italian is rather poor at this point.

    As another asde, I just sold my soul for a rare and very large folio of Michelangelo's architectural works. I can't wait to get it. I can't bear to look at my coming credit card bill though.

    Well, the obvious part is, I hung around here reading a lot before ever making any posts.

    Less obvious part is the initials, referring to the state of my location!
