As stated in the title to this webpage, it's because I'm an idiot.
Basically, what happened is that I needed to make a Lab Account to turn in my assignments for my Computer Science courses and to login to the Unix machines for the Computer Science department here at the university. Well, little 'ole me, not knowing that these lab accounts are UNCHANGEABLE once created, saw this:
and thought, "Oh, wouldn't it be funny if I used the example name just to mess with everybody?!" and signed up for a lab account under that pseudonym. As I would soon find out, that username for lab accounts is also used for your official departmental email and, as an extension, the title of your student homepage.
So yeah, there ya have it.
