    The story behind the mistery: re|ix


    Ever wondered where my name comes from? How I got it and what it means? Well, read on then, as the mistery is going to be revealed soon...

    It all started on 6th April 1996 in a building called "Scharpoord" in which the library of our town was situated. That day, I was in a bad mood, everything was ****ed up and I couldn't stand anything anymore. When I arrived at Scharpoord, I stopped after the door and I took a look to the left and to the right, as I was suspecting anything bad, something Lucifer couldn't summon, or even god couldn't watch. No, I felt this strange feeling inside my chest, wanting to break out...
    I walked to the library and I noticed there was no one around. A dark silence surrounded me, and I felt becoming more powerfull. My hearing improved and my feelings could notice the slightest breeze created by a thought. My eyes where scanning the library for evil, but this sent couldn't warn me for anything, as the dark forces of evil where already surrounding me and my sight was too primitive too see this kind of energy. I closed my eyes. Recreating the environnement inside my mind, while walking straight ahead. Now I could see them. The shadows swiftly moving through the building. The feeling inside my chest was growing. I kept walking until I was standing in front of a wall, in my mind that is. I opened my eyes and saw that the wall was semi-transparant. I touched it... Nothing, just air. I kept walking, passing the ghost wall. A very small room surrounded me and the wall becaming solid again. In the middle of the room, there was a ball made of liquid metal. I touched it, and it felt cold, until the ball was lighting up. It became white. I felt the temperature increasing and the feeling inside my chest growing. This couldn't be right, I thought. But it was no use, I couldn't take my hand away... It became hotter and hotter, until my hand was almost burning, but somehow I didn't felt any pain. My hand had dissapeard inside the white glowing ball and I became unconscious.
    When I woke up inside my own room, everything was normal, just like nothing had happened. When I tried to stand up, I felt my hand hurted, so I took a quick look at it. re|ix. That was engraved in glowing letters on my hand. It was glowing indeed. The feeling inside my chest was summoned, and now I knew what I was... I was re|ix, the reincarnation of the last knight protecting the Shikra, an ancient japanese book in which black magic was explained. I knew what my task was and how I could accomplish it. And I still know. I still know...

    mines simple. My last hotmail account, still active by the way. was my name and my middle initial spelled out in one big word robbadams:D. But as you know "somehow" pron sites and other places had gotten a hold of it and even with the inbox protector i was gettin over 100 spam emails a day in my inbox:(, so i said I haveta get a new email addy. So I sat down with a friend of mine and we talked about what we liked and tried to come up with names that reflected that. Ok were nerds but whatever. So i came up with two. Theareaunderthecurve (integral) which reflects my more than passing intrest in math, although upon reflection I realise I hate Math:sigh:. So I decided to combine my two favourite sources of fun. Computers and Physics. Hense Digital and a phenomenon known as the doppler effect especially as it relates to objects emitting photons moving towards the observer at a high rate of speed. :idea: Hense DIGITALBLUESHIFT. However this forum does not like 16 letter names so I had to knock of the last T. :(
    *Hint* allow 16 charcter names, and watch your database grow.:eyebrow:

    :cooldude:

    My handle which I use everywhere now. Came from someone bugging me about how Mac was better than my PC. So when I first got on IRC I took my love for the Personal Computer + hate for Mac and put a ghetto spin on it by adding the 4LIFE, Kinda like how rappers have the Thug 4 Life. And thats how I got my online handle.:D

    My handle came from my name being Nick (duh) and that, on one occasion, I handed out some advice on the ways of lurve to somebody and then changed my messenger handle to "The Love Doctor" (or summin like that :p) and then it sorta changed just to Dr. Nick cos I got bored..... Plus, Dr. Nick Riviera in the simpsons oVVns j00 :D

    I have another in the alphaF1 forums, tho, which is nick5millionand1, which came about when I was registering for a btinternet email account years ago.... Basically I just got peeved and thought "No-ones gonna have this!" and just mashed it in..... I don't use it anywhere else, cos it's too damn long :eeek:

    Nowadays, tho, I tend to use the handle "Six Degrees" as it is part of Dream Theater's latest album title (so saaaaaaaad :lol:) Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence. It's just stuck for months, and I like it best out of all of meh 'andles.

    Thank you for your patience :dude:

    real life... now how would that be...

    hehe, this is a sentence that a game programmer (of Divine Divinity, anyone?) once said to me ... yes to me ... YES TO ME hehehe ;)

    okay, let's rewind....

    good, after I wasn't a noob anymore, I needed a good nick, so I was sitting there thinking, until I came on the name "ratex". I don't know how, but I guess it has to do with something like x rated... :lol:

    Okay, one of the proves this was really my nick, check this one out (don't know if it's still online) http://come.to/ratex-productions .
    Yes that was my "company" under which I developped my first real applications, like a coder that didn't really worked well and a tweaker for windows that did work well.
    After I became a game-addict next to my programming-addict, I wanted to change my name, after some switching with lettres and my previous nick (ratex) I came on relix, which I think is "funkier" than ratex. I still used ratex that time for the programmer/hacker part of me, but when I was gaming I used relix. Later I switched completly to relix and now this is my new nick (also partly so the fed's can't trace me on my nick for what I have done (nasa didn't liked it, all I can tell ya ;), and I'm not into it anymore :D). On chat's nowadays I use the really neat nick penix...

    That's the true story dudes, now which one do you like best? (and yes, I have written stories when I was about 11 years old which I then read to the class, and I finished 1th on a writing contest when I was 12 ;))

    Nice, not as complex as I thought!

    It's ok about your english, m8. All computer nerds can be identified by their poor grammar and spelling!
