Stupid AOL. I go to get rid of that accursed LTCMDRLUN account since it's so confusing, with plans to take simply Lunaran. And it's bloody already taken
. So I'm forced into Lunaran2
@aol.com. Numbers are for losers like DarthV19741338 and Liz2000004. I go to e-mail Lunaran and demand to know just what he's doing wearing my name, and what's it say? The username Lunaran does not exist. :P
AOL restricts a SN from being used for five years after it was deleted, to prevent people impersonating you. Five years! ugh.
I always was proud of the fact that Lunaran was such a unique word it hadn't been thought of by anyone else. There's a million Killers and Gunslingers and Morphei out there in the community, but only one (damn good) Lunaran. Not only was this screen-name fiasco extremely irritating, it was kind of surprising. Maybe it's some Philipino guy wot's actually named Lunaran or something.
Just to test this out, I did a google.com search for "Lunaran." 98% of the returns were stuff related to me - my site, posts I've made on message boards, reviews of Lun3DM1 and 2, etc. But there was some interesting unrelated stuff.
There were lots of sci-fi stories that referred to people and things from the moon as Lunaran (you know, like an adjective) including Seclusion, Specter, some zephyr thing I can't get at because AOL sucks, and Return of the Forlorn.
Here's a character bio on a Neutral-Good Mith'Quessir Grey Elf named Lord Larathesalathsa Lunaran. And I thought ltcmdrlun was a mouthful.
Who would want to name their kid Lunaran? More importantly, who the hell would name their kid Lunch?
Hey, my site was featured at CAP-N-YO-ASS: Links That Don't Suck! It's not unrelated to me but it's good to know.
The Office of War Chancellor Kitten Lunaran. WTF?
Yikes. Not my best, surely.
There's an amusing IRC quote by me at TeamShambler, as well as an old Beetle-infested IRC Log at, uh, TeamShambler also.
That's everything out of 150 matches. ! So maybe I was right ... but who was Lunaran@aol.com?
Oh, yeah, and in case you hadn't noticed, my e-mail address has changed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
