Hey Φ, apropos of nothing at all, why did you choose Φ as your pseudonym? You must realize, Φ, that Φ is one of the lamest of all Greek letters.(I wonder how many more ways I can work 'Φ' into this post.)(ΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦ)
I wanted to use a capital letter that was symmetric and wouldn't be mistaken for a letter in the Latin alphabet. That left me with Δ, Θ, Λ, Ξ, Π, Φ, Ψ, and Ω. Δ, Π, and Ω are all in general usage with meanings that I do not intend. Ξ and Ψ, in contrast, are too obscure, not being used much in engineering (although I would have to look this up to be sure). Λ is, like, totally gay. That leaves Θ and Φ. Between these two, Φ is way, way cooler, with a rich history in e-mag and mathematics.
