My name "oneofmany" comes from my childhood. I was adopted and was the one chosen from the many that my parents interviewed for. Later at the age of 21, I found my birth mother and she was describing my birth father and told me that I was one of his many - although there were only two of us placed for adoption.

One of my wives suggested my screen name, she said: you're old and poly and a man. I have a more well known screen name (last I googled up to 18 pages) since I've been writing extensively on topics I care about, but before we were out, my concern was to protect my family.

The initials of my full name are: KDT

Taking the progamming convention of base-16 ... where 10=A, 11=B, 12=C ... thru 15=F ...

... and expanding that to base-36 numbers, where 16=G ... thru 35=Z ...

Then, KDT becomes a number ... and when that number is translated back into base-10, the all-numerical-digit result is 26,417 ...

And so, KDT = 26,417 ... and so, kdt26417 symbolizes my name in numbers ... and harks back to the old 8.3 filenames we use/d for backward compatibility.

While being neither programmer nor mathematician, I'm always interested in numbers and computers. And that's the whole story of my online name.

Regards,
Kevin T.

'Bromios' means "noisy, boistrous",and is one of the titles of Dionysus. I decided not to use my general internet ID because i'm not openly poly, and a reference to Dionysus, a boundry crossing and androgynous god who brings out our true selves from behind the masks of civilisation somehow seemed an apt choice of screen name.

Pen as in "pen name". I'm not very creative.

Did not want to use any of the few in-game names I use when gaming.
It was going to be the shorter version but it was already taken.
So I went for the full word.

Atlantis would be one of the most exciting archeological finds of recent years. Settle the question was it ever real or purely fiction? It would be great to know.
I studied archeology at Uni before I changed my degree to something with more employment opportunities. But I still love the subject.
