Three letter usernames - Introductions
gmk
I don't usually go as "gmk" online.

I'm only using it here because three letter usernames are standard on old UNIX systems.
Normally I'm "geremachek" everywhere, by that's hard to spell and pronounce.

I've made a few other posts here but, I thought I'd just do the introduction thing. I've been using Linux for about two years now. I've also been programming for about the same time so I don't really have any experience programming outside of it. I'm obsessed with CLI and TUI applications. Right now the only graphical programs I use are i3, termite, firefox, and feh. I always have fun looking around on github and looking for cool TUI/CLI programs and seeing if I can make my own personalized version of them. I find that I get more use of a program if I've written it myself.

So this is my introduction! : )

Re-implementing something yourself is certainly a great way to understand what's under the hood, I agree.

Welcome to nixers.

Old UNIX systems allowed more than three characters for user names. Anyway, welcome to nixers!

Hmmmm. Maybe you're right. I was just thinking about bwk, dfb, etc. I think back in the day three letter usernames where a standard for user names, but not at the software level.
