Whimsical

I have discovered that the username ewe was recently returned to the pool of available names. I'm really quite tempted to change to that, so I need you guys to help me make the decision. (Good usernames don't hang around very long, so if I wanted it, I'd have to act fairly fast.)

Pro:
  • It's a very cool username.
  • A three-letter username would have a certain cachet.
  • I'd be supporting LJ by buying a rename token.
  • I don't like livredor as a handle; I meant it to be the title of my blog, and it doesn't really work as an identity.
Con:
  • It would cost $15.
  • It might confuse people who have got used to calling me livredor or Liv.
  • I've kind of built up an identity as livredor, even if I didn't intend that when I created the name.
  • I have a subdomain at livredor.p5.org.uk, and a email address based on livredor@[domain], and I've generally been using livredor on quite a few places on the web apart from LJ now.
  • People might confuse me with ewx
