Oh, hmm. I always thought 'SFault' was "server fault", since most people call segmentation faults 'segfaults'.

Of course every person will call things differently, like some people call free or open-source software "freeware" when it doesn't really need to be gratis.

I personally call segmentation faults SIGSEGVs, or "segmentation fault". You'll find that some people out there call them "core dumping" despite that expression formally referring to a standard and configurable response from Unix process management servers applied to any error signal, not just SIGSEGV.

Enough linguistics/psychology for now. Let's go back to the topic at hand.

Ok! From the campaign Under the Burnning Suns, the character Nym and the unit Desert Star. And I like the name Nym :)

I'm very happy and peppy in real life, but on the internet I'm the brooding teenager I really want to be. Moribund means "death bound". Pretty emo, eh?

Well, mine comes from... Myself.
I just kinda like the name Jack (Although since creating this identity I've come to like Dante more).
And so one time I was doing a little RP thing and had to think of a last name... I chose Barber because it just sounded like a good last name for a character... XD

Kind of a lame story actually. Therefore I'll spare you the entire thing and just give an abbreviated version. It was invented in my high school Calculus class, we had brought in Hersheys Kisses to do integrals of their contours (spun around an axis) and of course instead of doing any integrals we all just sat there and ate them. One particular wrapper somehow ended up looking like a mouse, with the little streamer thing being the tail. A friend and I named it Cybermouse. Beats me why I actually decided it sounded cool and wanted to use it.
