I like Duct tape, what else can i say?  It has to be one of the most useful products known to man.  The different number of applications it can be used for is unbelieveable, and its just so much fun.
Duct Tape is like the Force.
It has a Light Side and a Dark Side and it holds the universe together.

Well, my nick is rather intresting because it describes the feeling that I had when I really started to use computers.....

Neo is latin for New
Thermic is latin for heat, and heat comes from fire.

My feeling was that of New Fire, or, as my nick is, NeoThermic.

Simple, but effective.

Well Rkiver is a play on words.
An Archive is a place where something, usually artifacts, or knowledge, books, strange things too.
So an Archiver is a person who stores all of the above.
Rkiver=Archiver.
Simple.

Oh, poor twisted me
Oh, poor twisted me
I feast on sympathy
I chew on suffer
I chew on agony

Swallow whole the pain
Oh, it's too good to be
That all this misery
Is just for, oh, poor twisted me
Poor twisted me

Poor mistreated me
Poor mistreated me
I drown without a sea
Lungs fill with sorrow
Lungs fill with misery

Inhaling the deep, dark blue
Oh, woe is me
Such a burden to be
The poor mistreated me

You finally reached the shore, survived the storm
Now you're bare and cold, the sea was warm
So warm, you bathe your soul again

Good to feel my friend
Oh, woe is me
Such a burden to be
Oh, poor twisted me
Yo, poor twisted me
There's gold in them mountains!

My name is a play on words it is sort of like a dictionary or a knower of all things about somthing (computers) i added another x because i allways like the name lexx from superman (Lexx Luthor (possibly Lux)) but i found it at the time to be a commonly used nick so i combined then to make a simplae name with a short for lex or lexx thus is got Lexxicon .  BTW I lexxicon have no affiliation with the show Lexx nor do i watch it nor is it even availiable to me so please do not ask. here are some definitions that explain the basis for my name.
