andphi's Journal: Coming and Going 2

Journal by andphi

I resurrected my old Slashdot username today. I used it from (I think) 2001 until 2004, then created a new username because I had left the roleplaying community in which the genmanath character was created. Don't worry, I shan't engage in any sockpuppetry or upmodding of my own comments. That would be abusive. I've left the uid dormant for so long for that very reason.

One thing that bugs me about slashdot is that one can only seen one's own complete comment history by subscribing. I can understand paying for easy access to other's history, but paying for access to one's own? I'd like to know how far back my slashdot history goes and if the two uids overlap in any respect.

I wonder, though, if my first uid is 577922 and my current uid is 899406, what is my real uid? The average of the two? It's a moot point, since they're both in the second half of the six-digit range. If I had one uid with five digits and one with six or seven, I would want to use the five-digit uid.

In the end, though, I think I will keep this UID and let genmanath remain a memory. My karma is better :)

  • From when I forgot that I had this one. Now I don't remember that one. I think it's a middle 5-digit one.

    I wonder if it's worth anything on Ebay. This one is certainly worth more, being 4-digit with a maxed karma. But I'm not selling it. :-)

Have you ever noticed that the people who are always trying to tell you `there's a time for work and a time for play' never find the time for play?
