||Back in the early days of TopCoder, you could actually change your handle at will. As you can imagine, this led to a lot of shenanigans and confusion with everyone showing up every week with a different handle. One week at one of the SRMs, people were discussing the movie Antitrust and its unrealistic depiction of the software industry/programmers/etc. (this was one of those movies where a hacker could sit down and in 3 minutes reprogram any computer anywhere in the world to do anything). As a joke I changed my handle to RachaelLCook and logged back in pretending to be the RLC character in the movie. I didn't bother changing my handle back after the match, and sure enough, the next time I came back to TopCoder, they had "locked" the handles and you could no longer change them. So, now I am RachaelLCook permanently!
I decided to run with the idea and not upload my real picture because I figured it couldn't hurt if the review boards think that I really look like this.
