My name is Christian Heiney, so I just put my first initial with my last name. No, it's not pronounced like **** Cheney, but rather C - high knee. Yes, it's another name for an ass.

Of all my seven currently used online,this one is way the oldest and was invented before the internet was invented.

Way back inte very early 1990's, I (as a early 20 something) went to the local games arcade to play coin operated games. When I got a score to put on a hi-score table, I used "LNZ".

The name comes from the natural logarithm of complex argument and I first saw this function in complex form in a maths text book in October 1990. In January 1991, I adopted the shortened form of the equation as a arcade game hi-score table. If you are too young, these late 1980's-early 1990's games only gave you a three letter name for you to enter.

Ln(z) = Ln(x+iy) = 0.5*ln(x*x+y*y) + (2*k*pi + theta)*i

k = any integer
i = square root of -1
pi = constant "pi" = 3.1415926535.....
tan(theta)=y/x, -pi <= theta <= pi

For the curious:

Ln(-1) = (2*k+1)*pi*i

If k=0 (principal value), ln(-1)=i*pi

Or exp(i*pi)=-1 which is famously stated as:

exp(i*pi)+1 = 0, which is Lenoard Eulers most famous ever formula!

I should start at the middle because it will make more sense that way:
kdub is an abbreviation of my name-K for Kenny, then Dub for the first sound of the first letter of my last name. 503 is the area code, and lil is for the fact that I'm the last of three. However, entire father's side of the family calls me Tre. Go figure.

I came up with mine a while ago, back when Lord of the Rings was first coming out. Gollum was my favorite character. :p I just added the 999 since "Gollum" was already taken.
