    I wish, I had a shitty evil conglomerate. I'd give it my username.

    Well I had Trashy.net domain name for a while, I tell you I had some weird traffic statistics, so I'm not sure I'd want a business based on my online name.

    My apache logs showed a bit of my traffic which I think were from automated porn site scrapers and such. likely because the .com was a porn site...

    I found tedades to be a handy name as I would regularly had to type it in when switching between multiplayer games. You can type it easily with your left hand so you can keep playing.
    Also it contains 'edade' which reads the same backwards, edades is spanish for ages (Sega spelled backwards, something they themselves also used in Sega Ages).

    My avatar is a Pokemon (Chansey). People use to try to have the coolest aggressive avatar so I had a cute one (Chansey because I thought the egg part was strange at first), not specifically because I'm the biggest Pokemon fan.

    So just for your name they made you part of their community. That's so nice.

    The year was 1998, grade 8. The maths teacher was sick and a substitute was allocated.
    He reads the notes. Learning about pi. Asks the class, "Does anyone know it's value?"
    Of course I knew it was 3.14159.
    Week passes. Teacher is still sick. New substitute is allocated. Reads notes. Learning about pi. Asks the class, "Does anyone know it's value?"
    Since very little was done in that last week, I committed 3.141592654 (accuracy of calculator).
    3rd week, same deal with new substitute. Get to 20 decimal places and figure it is a challenge at this point.
    4th/5th week work up to 50 decimal places.
    Over weeks 5-8, work my way up to 101 (just the way it falls).
    Year 11/12 comes around and I have teachers sending out students to find me, bring me back to their class and recite pi for a minute.

    I know 100 decimal places is a drop in the ocean compared to others, but I had mastered pi.
