There are a few online identities for me.

tg2k--used at CMU, just like sk4p. Of course you know this. People don't generally call me this in real life, though you're free to use the bastardization "tg2kool" (hey, it amuses me, and I have a few accounts with it as my login id as well). I use it in a lot of places because it is not commonly taken, and also if someone from CMU were searching for me in some area, it would probably occur to them to try this. I use it for AIM, although for YM it was derived from my yahoo.com email address (toddgleason). Note that Yahoo! changed the way they do IM and email, and originally my YM ID was actually tg2kool (but you have to use the same account to "link" the email and IM together).

Cool-Man--I'm not sure how this one got started, but it was sometime in high school. And yes, sometimes people do call me this in real life. I put it on my web page at andrew.cmu.edu, and eventually got www.cool-man.org to host it. I don't--at least yet--use it in any IDs or email addresses. Interestingly, you may note that my livejournal ID is tg2k but if you go to my journal then it will show it as "Cool-Man's". That's the problem with LJ--even if you have no entries, you can't change your ID. I didn't quite understand how my account information would show up when I created it, so I experimented and then couldn't change it. Had I to do it over again, I would have picked cool-man for my account ID, and shown "Todd C. Gleason" for my name in the journal.

T-Dogg--here's one most of the CMU folks haven't heard. My friend jonlubbe in the Santa Cruz area called me this a year or so ago while he was on some kind of Snoop Dogg kick, and I found it amusing enough to hang on to it. I just need some place to make it my ID...or maybe register--oh wait--tdogg.com is taken.
