  • First PAUSE wouldn't let you register a three-letter username. So I ended up with initial-lastname, which I hate. And now they do let you, and I'd really like to change. But my requests are being summarily ignored, because the Perl module system's maintainters are really opposed to people being able to change their name, or even have more than one user name, a thing that people can usually do.
  • There are 4 people named "John M(cD|acD|acd)onald" at my company (and 3 at the company where I actually work). I just had all my info reset (twice) because a new person was being added and the Windows account processing did not see John MacDonald as a duplicate for John Macdonald (because the capital D was "different"), yet the new entry overwrote my entry (because Windows ignores case when it actually *uses* a filename, so the capital D was "the same").
