[edit] The Name

When I created my neopets account when I was 9, I wanted a username that would make me unique. No numbers, no weird symbols, just something unique. I wanted a username also that would put me at the bottom of any alphabetical listing of users, but still have it be pronounceable. "Zyz" was out of the question.

I opened up a notepad document and typed in the last three letters of the alphabet backwards

zyx

I felt like adding a bit to make it a bit more complete

zyxuvi

And that was my username. Later when I created a RuneScape account, I expanded it to make it sound cooler to the teenage adventurer in me.

zyxuvius

And that's how I got this username. I now use it pretty much exclusively wherever I can, because I know that it will be unique and that it makes it that I only have to guess on the password field and not the username AND password field.

[edit] Interests

Computers, physics, music, language, linux, nerdy activities

[edit] Why do I like XKCD

I find it easier to refer my friends to a certain comic rather than give my own explanation for my irrational nerdy behavior.

Example:

Friend: Hey, why do you use Linux instead of Windows or Mac
Me: Hold on..., take a look at these: xkcd.com/272, xkcd.com/196, xkcd.com/456, xkcd.com/619, xkcd.com/644
Friend: Oh, that's cool...I...I uh never knew about these. It looks hard, but kinda cool. (Searches for something else to talk about
