    Mine is just my first & second name combined along with a 7... I don't know why.

    Yes people hate names with numbers in them, but it's a username -- eventually they'll have to use numbers. Was going to change it but, cbf + any new sites I register on 'zacs7' is never taken

    Well, in any case, I liked the name so I picked it.

    I needed a name for a character I was starting in EverQuest, it was an Iksar, which is a lizardman. I had just finished reading a book, The Last Dragonlord I believe was the name, the main character was a human that could shapeshift into a dragon and his name was Linden Rathan, Linden being his human name and Rathan being his dragon name. So I was going to reverse it and use it, but Rathan was already a taken first name, so I modified it a couple times until it went through, the fact that it starts with Wraith is purely accidental. My full gaming name now a days is Wraithan Lindane, so if you see that name, or just Wraithan you can assume it is me, not many/anyone else uses it, though there are some variations I have ran into over the years (been using it for ~8 years now) I am the one true Wraithan.

    Whatever you want to say. I don't use a definition myself, it was merely the one on the site I found it.

    Naked Ballerina is just the name of a recent series of paintings I did. People started tacking it to me. In reality I am neither naked nor a ballerina.

    Mine's my dog's Kennel Club affix and I think it's a province in South Africa... I would check but, weird, neither google nor wikipedia are working for me.

    P4R4N01D is a reference to gaming when very likely there is someone out to get you, I first used in in Starcraft, and now I use it for everything. Incase you haven't noticed, I enjoy writing things in 1337, it looks better. Without watching the Surreal vid, I wouldn't have noticed how using Clawfinger's "They're out to get me" as a soundtrack worked so well with CS (and RTSs as well).
    long time no C; //seige
    You miss 100% of the people you don't C;
    Code:
    if (language != LANG_C && language != LANG_CPP)
        drown(language);
