Question 1: Why drshaws?

Mainly, because of my love for Dr. Pepper. drshaws-at-mac-dot-com was chosen as my e-mail during my time as a poor grad student. Dr. Shaw’s is Shaws Supermarkets’ yummy derivative/generic version of Dr. Pepper.  drshaws has stuck ever since. It’s a seemingly less threatening generic, than let’s say Stop and Shop’s Dr. Perfect or Wal-Mart’s Dr. Thunder.
