    Enter your MacRumors user name into Google and see what comes up. I put in my user name, and here's what I got:

    Wow...

    I just get my profile here, then a bunch of stuff from other Mac or Linux forums. No surprises really.

    On the first page of results, the only one that's actually "me" is five down: "Mac Forums - View Profile: devilot." :D

    There's a band named after my user.

    I see myspace pages, a goth website and some others.

    I guess its not that unique after all! LOL

    Amazingly I pretty much just find stuff I've done... Profile here, various posts, posts from other forums I've been on, digg profile...etc....

    Can't for the life of me figure out why there's no-one else going by my username....;)

    Pretty much the first page of Google's listings point at one or other of my sites, but No. 1 is:

    "One of these days there will be a site here. Honest. Today is not that day."

    One of my domains - not currently in use :cool:

    I don't know chemistry well enough to know the significance, but I get a few hits for stuff with a composition of NbS2. But I also gets hits to my profile at chowhound (impressive since I finally got around to registering only a day or two ago), a couple of my posts to the car-seat.org forums, and my profile here. But my top result was one of my posts to the Ripping DVDs to 5G iPod thread.

    It asked if I meant "Roosevelt"

    Then posts from here, and lastly my blog appeared. It was like 12 pages, so I only looked at the first.

    More or less just MacRumors and YouTube.

    Google is very helpful and tries to correct my spelling - "Did you mean: stockings" :rolleyes:

    Mine is all over the place.

    I chose it because it's the name of a beautiful town in Scotland, as well as being the piece of music I was listening to at the time I registered (by Tangerine Dream)
