    In the days when DarpaNet was young and exclusive. Those whose minds were twisted and bent by exposure to microwaves or alien influence turned to using acoustic couplers and 300bps transfer rates to find junction points in the nascent hive mind that would become the internet. These seamy, seedy, and dangerous places of gathering were known as BBS. They sometimes allowed as many as 20 people to connect at the same time. Later they would be the first to allow gopher, smtp, and usenet connections.
    In this dark underworld I was born, a name was sought that would hide my identiy for my deeds were dark. Being a devotee of the Playfair-Wheatstone cypher I grabbed for a Cypher key from the depths of my mind. ty, and extraction of my surname, ja, an extraction of my given name. Every Playfair cypher must have its null character, its parity bit. My parity has allways been off. Ergo X.

    Ty Ja X = bonus points if you can create the playfair wheatstone grid from that.

    Somehow somebody misspelled my name. It's Pascal and if you can turn that into Puscas, that's enough for me to make it my nickname.



    Garbz, how about this for a camera-name: [(o)]



    or the point and shoot: [o*]



    :lol:

    One late night I was searching on the computer and ended up on a forum. I needed a user name to register after giving it about a half second thought I looked down at my feet and there was Gizmo our little peek-a-poo. So I borrowed his name (he didn't seem to mind) I have used that user name on several forums but it seems as all of the photography sites already have a Gizmo so I put Tn in front for Tennessee. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Oh by the way, I'm new and howdy y'all.
