I live 3/4 of my life in a debugger, remaining time with my wife & kids, and playing piano/uke for fun. Sometimes I make (usually) embarrassing cooking/music videos on YouTube.
In 2004-2005 I lived in the North East of China, in a small city called Tonghua. Nobody could pronounce my name so I used a Chinese name “陳天歌“ which in Mandarin is pronounced Chen Tian Ge. Chen is a Chinese surname, a friend from Shanghai chose this name for me. Tian means sky, Ge means song. He give me this name because I like music and “天天唱歌” (Tian Tian Chan Ge – Sing Every Day) Tian Ge can also be thought of as “song from the sky” Now with 500+ accounts across the internet I struggled to find a standard account name that had not already been used by others. Although many accounts ‘chen tian ge’ existed, and many existed with my english name…when I put them together I found a combination that is unique to me. Unfortunately apologies to all English speakers as you will probably find this name hard to remember & pronounce….
