Computer geeks aren't satisfied with their screen names, they're becoming them.

Websites specializing in name changes have reported a surge in computer users requesting to be called by their personal websites' names.

Silicon Valley and Redmond lawyers are swamped with requests. "Some of their new names are pretty slick," said one attorney. "They'll be much easier to remember now rather than John Smith or such."

"The name my parents gave me was fine," said Ebay seller Hacker666 who is currently wanted for selling several stolen FBI computers, "but I want to be called Hacker Dotcom DCLXVI. It's my livelihood."

The Spoof would like to remind Hacker666 that it is illegal to change your name to avoid legal matters.
