My wife (Andrea) and I are torn between two sets of aliases for ourselves … Raoul and Consuella (from Malcom in the Middle, the parents were going to run away and change their names) or Ken Adams and Regina Phalange (filangie) (from Friends, Joey's and Phoebe's fake names).
Maybe we will use tham both in different situations. ;-)
Of course we are not going to do anything bad, we may just use them as screen names.
Do any of you have any ides on which way we should go?

What happened to TechTV, it used to be pretty good, but since it became G4techTV it is just too game oriented.
Don't get me wrong, games are OK. But I used to love to watch to get tips, tricks, and programs I would use on my computer at home and at work.
And all of the Mod-ing that they have been doing (even when it was TechTV), give me a break! How many of us have a plasma cutter to help create our own cool case!?! Yes some of the Mods are neat and cool, but I think G4techTV goes overboard a bit.
And the G4techTV Web Site, how awful! When I would search for something, I used to be able to actually find most of it on the TechTV site, but that's not the case with G4techTV. Thank heavens Kevin Rose and Sarah Lane are posting some information on their personal sites.
I understand that Call for Help will be coming back with Leo, that might help. Though I feel sorry for The Screen Savers, they really have gone down hill (and I don't think it's because of the on-air personalities, I really like most of them).
Oh, well. G4techTV, if you are listening: Get rid of half of the shows about gaming and get more Techie!
If anybody else in the TV industry is listening: Start a new channel, one that has more of a Techie slant to it!
