내가 사용하는 지메일 아이디는 'masterhand' 이다. 한 1년정도 써왔는데, 어떤사람이 이런 메일을 보냈다..

Subject : Masterhand email account
Howdy.  Is this a registered account?  I thought I was the only person
in the world who would use masterhand. How did you come up with that
name?

I'm just perplexed that this name would be unavailable already and now
I'm curious to find out why you're using it.

thanks,
Steve

Subject Re : Masterhand email account

Hello Steve,

I'm a Korean man who studies computer science. The reason why I'm using
'masterhand' is that I just wanna be an expert on my field. I looked up
Korean-English dictionary for 'Dal-in' (means an expert in Korean) then
I found 'masterhand'.
I'm using this account name over one year. Sorry for bothering you.


thanks,
Intaek

Hey - thanks for replying and you're not bothering me at all - in fact, I'm bothering you.  Your story is too funny.  At my last job I worked for a global software company and we had an internal mailing list for eningeers to submit technical questions.  Usually everyone would start a posting like:  "Hi experts..." or something like that.  Well, one of our Chinese engineers looks up experts in his english-->chinese kanji dictionary and came up with "masterhand".  We he sent his email to the whole list, he started with "Hi Masterhands".  It was soo funny that I immediately started using that name for myself around the house and at work.  Even my children call me masterhand now sometimes (they know it's a joke).  As I mentioned in my original email, I really thought I was the only one in the world to actually use masterhand.  That's too funny.  My other nickname is "router monkey".
 
So what part of computer science are you studying?  My job is now Cisco support for a large company (I did Cisco work before the software company).
 
Also, I've been to Korea a bunch of times about 12-15 years ago in the Marines - Seoul, Pohang, and Pusan.  I liked it and want to go back with my family sometime.  There's a big market (or was anyways) in Pusan that's great for shopping.  
 
Anyways, thanks again for writing back.  I normally wouldn't email strangers but I had to in this case.
 
Steve

    같은 이유로 같은 아이디를 골랐다는게 재밌다는 게로군요.
    게다가 한국에서 해근에서 근무한 경험이 있어서 더 친근감을 가지고 이야기를 붙이는 듯한데,,
