I was looking for something to go along with my web design business and really couldn't find anything that suited well. So I basically took the 3 first letters of my first, middle and last name DLK and added reations after it... DLKreations.

I actually thought it had something to with AK-47. So you just ruined my conception of you. :(

Ozz is quite simple really.

No connection to Australia, just the first letter of three names

olivier: my christian name
zanchetta: my surname
zuzaniuk: my girlfriends surname.

Even there is a change of events, my girlfirends name would then be zanchetta, so I can keep the ozz :D

Kaye,

I wouldn't worry about it. I couldn't even get past my given name. Now that is a lack of imagination. :-)
Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over and each time expecting a different result.

Democracy is 2 wolves and a lamb voting on the menu. Liberty is an armed lamb protesting the electoral outcome. A Republic negates the need for an armed protest.

Not necessarily; I was wanting to use my given name of Don, but it was already used. Hmm maybe I could spice it up a bit and spell it Donn, or Donovan.

This might be a weird post, but I always thought your user name was dlkreactions and I just realized it's dlkreations as in d-l-creations. I am dumbfounded.
