    How many of you use your own real name as your Username (not just here, anywhere, including your Username on your PC)?

    I see many people who fancy some unique derivatives of their own names, or their favourite thingies. Even I used to use other names, like DAVIS (the blue character in Little Fighter 2). I was wondering what proportion of people do this. Of course, its gonna be huge figure. So, people vote in the poll.

    A QUESTION FOR THOSE WHO USE SOME USERNAME OTHER THAN THEIR OWN REAL NAME:

    Does your Username define you?

    My user name on my pc is determined by my company.
    (You may know a man by the company he keeps, or by the company that keeps him.)

    I have some affection for my username because I created it during a period of change in my life, and I enjoy the aesthetics of it - but that's about it really. For my personal computers and devices I just use my real name, for all online non-school related things I use either this username or one similar to it. I tend to keep paralith for science forumy kinds of things.
    Man can will nothing unless he has first understood that he must count on no one but himself; that he is alone, abandoned on earth in the midst of his infinite responsibilities, without help, with no other aim than the one he sets himself, with no other destiny than the one he forges for himself on this earth.
    ~Jean-Paul Sartre

    Gottspieler= "One who plays God" in German. I've written this once before in another thread but I'll write it again.
