    Yeah, it's too bad new designers don't know them.
    I had a couple sub-vendor printers go completely offline for two weeks in November due to a Christmas crush. They didn't take any new orders for...

    You shouldn't be looking on google images... at least not without expecting to pursue permission to use the images. Google images is NOT a stock site, though some stock shows up in it.

    Very strange. You want someone to tell you how to set up a site so YOU will benefit?
    The Graphic Design part sounds like it will be very important to the success of your site.
    How much money...

    You should start first with a business plan. You can find help with those at your local Small Business Association or many online resources. Kool had a nice 2-part blog post here at one time about how...

    The description you have written...
    1. it needs to be proofread for grammar usage.
    2. "made...by a software developer and design student" is not making me want to buy this. Unnecessary...

  • On World of Warcraft, I created a character which I would play heavily for multiple years. When I created her, her skin reminded me of Hematite, thus I named her Hematita.
    I used the name for quite a while and it was rather unique, so I use it as a username sometimes now.

        • My story is pretty silly. I like the new My Little Pony cartoon and for kicks one day I looked up one of the name generators for it. I put in my name (first and last!), and it generated 'Cherry Belle'. I thought that name was really cute, and I re-generated with the same criteria a couple times, and it never changed, so I know it was some crazy algorithm translating my first and last name into 'Cherry Belle'.

          Heh...

            • I use StudioMonkey online in a couple of different forums. No reason to keep thinking up a new one for each Forum I register with.

                  • Its my name. I am called Mal by anyone who doesn't like saying Malice - a strange thing when someone won't say your name because of the "connotations" of it. It is just a name, and it means "ill intent" - some would say it described me many years ago - but now I am who I am and yet I am Malice - So Hi everyone I am Malice

                        Keming, I had to go do some research to get the joke... I have a new appreciation myself!

                        I really wish the forum hadn't limited me on my usual name now... accidentalpancake would have been much more amusing.

                    • For what I recall (I use this alias for a very long time), Baylock is the name of a character in "Rosemary's baby" (book/movie).
                      I believe it comes from a demon which is initially called Baa'lok.
                      I'm pretty sure it is the name of the nurse taking care of the baby and I found it pretty cool and catchy when I saw the movie.
                      I use it since then, sometimes as Baylock, sometimes as Bayl0ck when the other spelling is already used (most of the time it is available).
                      If it was up to me, my alias would be "Lex" but, of course, it is too short and way to common to be available nowadays...

                        I believe Mrs. Baylock was the nanny in The Omen.
