Well, my username on this board will be AshRyan. It's a combination of my nickname, Ash, with the name of my deceased older brother Ryan. Before he died, Ryan taught me the importance of clear thinking, logic, rationality, etc.; in effect, he helped me become the person I am today. You could think of him as an intellectual "father" to me. I think it's therefore fitting that I use his name as a surname. My real father and I are ideologically opposite in too many respects, so I don't really want to go through life with the name I received from him. I intend to have my name legally changed to Ash Ryan as soon as it's convenient, probably in a year and a half or so once I've received my Bachelor's degree.

It actually looks like I also neglected to mention my AIM username (AshRyan20) before, even though I did post in this thread when I first joined the board over half a year ago. But that's probably because I hardly ever use it. Most of my web activities are done at work, because I have a lot of free time given the nature of my job and web surfing is allowed--but we're not supposed to put instant-messaging programs on the computer here.

But anyway, welcome to the board, dixi! ;)

Ash, are you aware that there are web-based IM clients for AIM and ICQ that do not involve installing any software? I've used them quite a bit when I was unable to install software on the machine I was using.

Well, it's not so much that I can't install software on the computer here, as that there are certain computer activities that are off-limits. While I have a lot of free time at my job and I am allowed to surf the web, the bosses think that real-time interactive activities would be too distracting and might diminish security officers' ability to pay attention to cameras, respond quickly to incidents, etc. I could install IM programs on the computer and use them (and some of my co-workers have done so in the past), but I think that while I'm on company time, using company property, I'd better respect company rules.

If you would like to interrupt my excruciatingly boring life you can get ahold of me through AIM: nne158
