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 corpse in the library" dates back to a Dorothy Sayers e-mail list I was on years ago, where it was standard to take a character from one of the books as a username. The corpse pops up in Strong Poison.
