adameros: My first and middle names concatinated together.
I have only had a limited number of screen names over the years. When I started BBS's in 1990, I was "The Master Of Time" from my love of watches. It was later shortened to "tmot" at PSU. That account was broken into and I got a new account. This time I went wwith my middle name, "eros". When I would IRC it was often as "eros", though sometime I would reverse it and go on as "sore". Eros is a common screen name, though, so I now go by adameros, which I've never encountered anyone else using. I think the fact that my screen name has last so long is that it is really myname and there for always "me", where as others pick names based on a personna or mood, and out grow them frequently. I don't anticipate changing my screen name in the foreseeable future. I don't like the idea of losing track of people and I hope a consistant name keeps me easy to find as I change ISPs, servers, domains, etc.
