abraxas, despite all the modern definitions I've seen, is an ancient greek word, or more appropriately a design meaning - nothing. It was used in jewelry as an abstract design. I was first attracted to the word by the Abraxas album by Santana. I named my engineering company Abraxas Engineering in 1994. I like it. Looks cool.

Nabero=First two letters of my first, middle, and last name.

There is a longer (see: nerdier, slightly embarrassing) story behind it...but that will suffice I'm sure.
#:vi geeky.c

#include <stdio.h>

int main()
{
if (geeky==good)

{
printf("It is true that geeky is good tell us");
}
return 0;
}
#:gcc geeky.c
#:chmod a+x a.out
#:./a.out
It is true that geeky is good tell us#:exit

Darn it I forgot the \n...
