2 About the name jny

This is actually an explanation of the origin of my username as many persons have asked me where the username and email address jny comes from.

When I started studying at HUT, the computer science students had their own set of Unix servers. They were some kind of Altos machines if I remember correctly. The rest of the students were left with a couple of Vaxes running some kind of BSD Unix, I guess.

These machines were administered separately and while you got lame usernames like knyberg in the Vaxes, the Altos machines had cool three-letter user names, like jny.

The reason I got the username jny is in a sense a mistake. Normally, the names were something like the first letter of your given name and two letters of your surname. Now, although I am called Kristoffer, my parents were smart enough to give me two more names, John Folke, which they put in front of Kristoffer. This of course opens up endless possibilities for mistakes.

So the j in jny comes from John. I have since got attached to the a-bit-off username and managed to keep it in my now eternal email address using the excellent service of IKI.
