About 1/3 of the way down the page:

D - Heinlein Concordance

Was on a forum, and helped someone. They replied, "You are a god!". I said, no, I am just a guy. Started using that. (Happened here too, and I saved it )

I wonder how dobhar chose his username?
In the Hindi language, do = two & bhar = times. So dobhar = Two Times.

Mine is just my middle name (Prabhu Gladson Samual Thomas) followed by the year i was born. Its always available for me wherever I need a username, so I stuck with that
