Where did you get your LJ name?

It is my given name. I thought about using a descriptor on my name, such as Marine, or Access, or SQL, or any number of things, but came to the conclusion that they effectively only relate to one aspect of my life and may in fact be transitional, whereas, I thought of LiveJournal as spanning over many, many years.

Do you use it other places?

Orkut.com and maybe a couple of other places online.


I use accessderek@hotmail.com and derek@machinerebel.com, so I general, I will use at least my first name.

Other websites?

Like I said, occasionally


When I play online games (Half-Life CounterStrike, BF: 1942, etc.) my online handle is ImpactSmash. I created that name from a lyric in the song Walkin' on the Sun by Smash Mouth about impact and smash from Smash Mouth. I created ImpactSmash so I could have some anonymity online.


I use ICQ, which is a number of their choosing, and MSN, which is accessderek@hotmail.com.

Do people call you that in real life?

Everybody I know calls me Derek. I never picked up a nickname that stuck. My Mom will sometimes refer to me as 'DB', short for Derek Bruce.

How did you come up with it?

Just my name, dude. Just my name.

hmmm... seems kind of weird that your mom would use a nickname like that. I'm more used to mom's going out of their way to use given names. After all, they gave it. But hey, what do I know? Thanx for answering.
