Re: Theme Nicknames?
- One thing I know that is dumb is how the ampersand in Aleka &
GrillCake gets turned into "Aleka & GrillCake" in the byline.
Anyway that whole mess happened when Yahoo took over egroups. My
wife was already in a Yahoo Group and I was in a different E-Group
other than this one. And when the switched and I converted my account
I actually merged with my wife's existing account because we had the
same e-mail. For a while I was showing up as Mrs Ben McCaig cause
her profile was female. So we changed the profile to include us both
but the transexuality of our account still confused yahoo. Go figure.
The actual Name GrillCake originated as the Name of my first unix
server in college and I eventually took it as my own screen name at
various place across cyberspace.
McDirge came about when GrillCake was rejected as a name by those
Yahooligans. It appears that someone else in the world had stolen my
name. There is also someone on Napster using my name. Who knows if
they really saw my name and used it or they coincidently thought of
it themselves(unlikely). Ive never ran across them anywhere oooh but
when I do....
Anyway McDirge is just a hybrid of my last name and the Name of our
Cat who just happens to be named after a depressing style of music.
