54. Chan is my literary nom-de-plume middle-name...
Edited on Sun Feb-21-10 03:59 PM by Chan790
it'd be my legal middle name too if I wasn't just being lazy about it. 790 was a random number assigned to me by Netscape when I signed up for an email account like 12 years ago...the number was meaningless then but has become a signifier for me since then. I use it everywhere as a representative integer. (You know how sometimes you're asked for initials to verify your presence or as a dual-control...I use 790.)
