Amithus is the screen name for Dan's characters in game. Amithus as a character name has been around since 1994 in Ultima Online and has been my main identity online since 1995. It's derived from a mis-spelling of the word Amethyst and since no one else uses that spelling, I've been able to get that name on any game I've played since then. Other screen names are DNS, DHCP, Xanabar and MSTSC. Most of the networking terms come due to my education and career path in IT. Xanabar is a meme on Xanax, something that one of my friends takes daily and calls them Xanabars, figured it was funny and as an alt name, again is usually not taken.
