Why “foodstr2”?

I (Bruce Hopkins) use the screen name foodstr2 because, back in 1996 (when I first got online), I was selling food and wanted to be know as ‘the foodster’ (like a race car driver might want to be ‘speedster’), but someone was already using the name “foodster”.  You might remember that, back then, you were limited to 8 characters in your screen name.

I figured that I’d drop the “e” and put a number at the end of “foodstr”.  Trouble was that the number 1 looked too much like the letter l (el) … so I thought 2 would be the less confusing choice to be recognized.

Well, that was a short post, huh?
