New username for me!

After mulling it over in the back of my heed for a while, I decided to change my username. It is the Finnish name for the howler monkey, but can also be used as an insult. The direct translation is "Obnoxious Noise Monkey". It seemed just too perfect . So be prepared for more incoherent shouting than before!

-Jooseppi

Is this a Gas Monkey thing?

Do you want to be Richard Rawlings?

Or even master mechanic...

I wasn't sure at first, but now I'm convinced that I dislike the new name as much as the old. Well done.

It's actually a separate letter in Finnish -- the last letter of the alphabet. The Finnish alphabet z, å, ä, ö (the å is from the filthy Swedes). Finnish only has one sound per letter, so we need the extras!

Another plus is that you guys can't spell it right on your filthy American keyboards .

Rats.



How did you do that? I know that on Win10 I can switch between different languages, which then changes what letters my keyboard types.

Multiple options.
  1. Copy & paste from your text :p
  2. Embrace your antiquities and use Alt codes

With Alt codes, you can do fun things like ¡ and ¿ or Ž.

They come in handy for dealing with all that funny money around the world, too: £ € ¥ or my personal favorite, the Dutch Florin: ƒ

Of course, my username really should be ramonajim© (or would it be ramonajim™ - I never can remember which applies).

You have to ask Wayne to do it... it's not something that you can just do yourself.
