:lol: This is what I got with my real name

Jan H***e's Dewey Decimal Section:
842 French drama
Jan H***e = 01481315 = 014+813+15 = 842

Class:
800 Literature

Literature, criticism, analysis of classic writing and mythology.

What it says about you:
You're a global, worldly person who wants to make a big impact with your actions. You have a lot to tell people and you're good at making unique observations about everyday experiences. You can notice and remember details that other people think aren't important.

And with my forum name -
Jan Van Quirm's Dewey Decimal Section:
030 General encyclopedic works
Jan Van Quirm = 01421471983 = 014+214+719+83 = 1030

Class:
000 Computer Science, Information & General Works

Encyclopedias, magazines, journals and books with quotations.

What it says about you:
You are very informative and up to date. You're working on living in the here and now, not the past. You go through a lot of changes. When you make a decision you can be very sure of yourself, maybe even stubborn, but your friends appreciate your honesty and resolve.

and with my 'elf' name - very odd this one :P

Janowyn's Dewey Decimal Section:
553 Economic geology
Janowyn = 0145354 = 014+535+4 = 553

Class:
500 Science

Math, astronomy, prehistoric life, plants and animals.

What it says about you:
You are fascinated by the world around you, and see it as a puzzle worth exploring. You try to understand how things work and how you can make them better. You might be a nerd.

Actually that last one's spookily close to my next writing project set in an archaic terraformed world at the edge of the galaxy populated with GELF species including prehistoric mammals... :shifty:
