Why 'ajdecon'?

ajdecon is the first unix account name I ever used, from a fun little "learning unix" class I took in middle school. Though I admit I don't know what naming scheme possibly came up with it. ("First initial, middle initial, first five letters of last name" seems a bit odd to me.)

Since then, I've done my best to use it whenever I can; this hasn't always been possible, but in most cases I've been able to hang onto it. At this point, I more-or-less regard it as interchangeable with my full name. :-)
