The Skeptical Wolf: Acrophonology

"YOUR NAME IS NOT AN ACCIDENT OF FATE," trumpets the website.

I entered "Wolfington Xavier Analemma," and this is what I got:

WOLFINGTON-Take advantage of all opportunities. You must develop your creativity and talents. You are determined to prove yourself to others. You have a great deal of loyalty to those you love. You have much inner strength. You have a diplomatic flair to your nature. Equality and fairness are important to you. You are naturally friendly. You can be the life of the party. You are relatively demonstrative in your affections. You enjoy being stroked verbally and physically. You can handle details well. You have a methodical mind. You are a hard worker when you make up your mind to do a job. Your privacy is important to you. You have a rich inner life. You need to learn flexibility. You must learn to give 'wise' service and not be a martyr.

XAVIER-You have many talents, but not enough organizational ability. You have too many eggs in one basket and tend to be disorganized. You can easily detach from people and situations. You enjoy unconventional friends. You have a need for mental growth and excitement. You are relatively demonstrative in your affections. You enjoy being stroked verbally and physically. You take pleasure in your creative comforts. You can be quite inventive and quite curious. Your use of reason and logic is strong. You enjoy communicating. You enjoy a challenge. You can take thought-directed actions. You can be assertive and aggressive when the occasion arises.

ANALEMMA-You have much enthusiasm with a driving attitude toward achievement in life. You have a diplomatic flair to your nature. Equality and fairness are important to you. You enjoy socializing and entertaining. You can be quite inventive and quite curious. Your use of reason and logic is strong. You enjoy communicating. You are always involved with projects and things to do. You must be careful to mother and not smother your loved ones. You need to learn when to let go. You must be careful to mother and not smother your loved ones. You have a need to be up front.

The reduplication of the one phrase about mothering and not smothering loved ones is a direct clue that there are errors in their randomization process.

I think I'll stick to Phrenology.

When I put my full name in, the information for the last name repeated about five times.

I'm not sure how to react, but it's kind of accurate for me...

For my name, it had two sentences that were unique—let's call them A and B. Then it said two more sentences (C and D) twelve times. So A B C D C D C D C D C D C D C D C D C D C D C D C D. I have twelve letters in my last name, plus a hyphen, but this is ridiculous!

They hope you believe what gets repeated often enough.

I hope you have your shields set "11" when you poke at these websites :)

Even better, you should be running Ubuntu in a Virtual Machine and make your system 100% malware proof ;-)

CYa!

Yeah, shields are at max. I've never come across malware while using Stumble, but it's good to be sure anyway. Your idea has great merit - I installed Win7Pro a while ago and have a VM set up, but I've not done anything with it... yet. Ubuntu would be a good first project.

All best,
-Wolfington

Not ime like the present: http://www.ubuntu.com/download

Note that VMWare has been updated to v4.x. There are significant improvements for Windows host systems in it. I recommend you take the time to update to that if you have not already done so prior to spinning up an Ubuntu VM.

Note you can also install Windows into a VM. Make a back up copy of this VM, then should the first one get smashed by a nasty virus or whatever, just blow it away and replace it with a fresh copy of the backup.

There are a couple of other nifty for geeks only tweaks you can do to make VMs run even better on your PC, let me know when/if you get there.

Retrophrenology as practised in Ankh Morpork might be the answer.
