Why is your name here the way it is? What inspired your name, what does it mean? How about your title (unless you're just a junior member, member, or senior member), or your avatar? Dooooo tell! Shrike-A pesky little bird that has a habit of dropping its prey onto barbed wire, leaving it there to die until it returns later. Plus it sounds cool. Deus Ex Machina-Latin for (I believe) The ghost in the machine, which says on the cd case for the game Deus Ex (pronounced Dayss) says the one that will save us all, the god that will use mechanics to save the world. I thought that sounded fairly cool.
