Yeah, my nickname's Hamster, so what? Yeah, I go by it on
IRC, (Well, actually I
use Hamusutaa now.)
whenever I can. Oh, you want to know why a guy like me would choose Hamster as his nickname? Well It's simple, really.
Well, my full name is Andrew Michael Scheffler. That means my initals are AMS. In a brief period of ingenuity, (I think I hadn't slept in a couple of days) I realized that the word "hamster" had my initials in it, so I decided that if I ever needed a nickname it would be HAMSter. Some years later I needed a handle for calling into BBSes, so I remembered (surprisingly) the name. I hope you're satisfied.

I'd like to point out that these pictures are of
who according to my knowledge has become somewhat of a celebrity in the hamster
community. Fluff's proud owner Jonathan Gwyer has pointed out that I have forgotten to mention this.
For this I am truly sorry, and for those of you who really thought that those
were pictures of me, I'm sorry to burst your bubble.
