About

What's the deal with your nickname? How did you get it? If your nickname is self-explanatory, then tell everyone when you first started using the internet, and what was the first thing that made you say "wow, this isn't just a place for freaks after all?" Was it a website? Was it an email from a long-lost friend? Go on, spill it.

The username is the sequelae of my first email address; my last name was too long for the antiquated server used by grad computing at U of T, so it got chopped off. It became my default online identity -- I've been jrochest since 1992.
