    How did you choose your username

    I was wondering how did you all get to choose those names or handles (whatever you want to call it). There are some pretty cool names there..

    Ever been outside and seen the fog just before the sun rises? Kind of a surrealistic blue mist around everything... Everything is very quiet and nobody is moving yet. Its like you're the only person on the planet. The light at dawn is another world unto itself.

    ... Though come to think of it i've seen it a lot more often before going to bed then the very few times i've woken up before it...

    Procyon means two things: the name of a star in the constellation Canis Minor, and the genus of the raccoon (scientific name, Procyon lotor). Since I'm interested in astronomy and zoology, it seemed appropriate.

    Maes is a belgian beer. I was drinking it when I registered. And due to lack of imagination(and to much alcohol) I used it as my nickname.

    Magos = Magnus Ostberg (my name). Why? I dunno. It's partially from a character in Chrono Trigger (Magus), which was my earlier avatar.
