Public service announcement!

Please don't be surprised that you don't see "xb95" floating around anymore. I'm finally pulling the trigger on a major thing I've been considering: rebranding my online presence to the name [personal profile] zorkian, which is slightly more pronounceable and, hopefully, memorable.

My Twitter account has been renamed, my Facebook account is already under this moniker, and I will slowly but surely transition myself over to it. In addition, I own zorkian.net and zorkian.org (although they don't do anything yet).

You will also find me on Freenode and various IRC networks as zorkian going forward.

The obvious question might be: why zorkian? It turns out it's something I've used off and on as a username on many services for a decade now, and I've always wanted to abandon xb95 just never found a good time. I'm finally making that time -- it's an arbitrary time, really -- but it hearkens back to my roots.

Reference: http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Zorkian -- some of my favorite games of all time, and a very defining part of my childhood.

Thanks for listening!

But the important question is: am I likely to be eaten by a grue?
