Re: How did you found your internet nickname?

It is ... what everybody calls me in real live :D

Slom is an abridged version of my last name. My first name is so common that there are always two or three of us in every meeting; using Slom (or the diminutive Slomi) avoids constantly asking "which one".

No idea about SW.

For SD the really good ones are 3 pin and logic scan.

But I think all have been converted in one form or another by now.
