All right, to add to the list of belated revelations, Xkylyr Rauh's real name is Xkylyr Rauh. I did not know this until this evening. I always thought it was a cool pseudonym. Turns out it's a very cool real name. http://www.powayusd.com/pusdphs/ALUMNI/ ... gyear=2001

So, yeah, awesome name, Xky! Now that I know it's your name in real life, I feel sort of obligated to find out how to pronounce it. 'Ek-Sky' probably won't cut it.

Yep, Xkylyr Rauh... Say it like Skylar, and then Rauh rhymes with Cow or How. Xky (or Sky) is just easier to say, and it's less formal. :)

I had someone talk to me on Skype once, when I used it, who thought it was pronounced "Ecks-key" instead of "Sky!"

Before joining the PCKF, I played Episode X, and I thought Xky was an acronym or something. So I used to say X-K-Y.

I've wondered... when people read my username, do they say 3-1-4, or three-fourteen? I say three-fourteen.

Whoops! I had that all messed up in my head. I was thinking it was more like "Rah" or "Ra".
So more like "R-ow"?

Skylar R-ow.

I usually say Genius Three Fourteen in my head but sometimes I just use "genius."

I found out three years ago that it was his real name.

You're slow.
