      Just curious, and I in no way mean to be an ass about this, but you and a number of other people I've seen post spell their name "iD," and yet, I've never seen something official from id Software that spelled it that way. Do you spell it that way just because you've seen others do it? Throughout their history, I've seen them spell it "ID," "Id," and now the official spelling is "id," but never "iD."

        iD is how Apple would spell it.

        Because we're unable to connect the name to Freud.

          Would you be one of those who also pronounce their name like "eye-dee"? :)

          As far as I have seen, it has never been "iD." If you look at the Commander Keen games and Wolfenstein 3D, it's "ID."

            Yeah but it kinda looked like iD. So some people always capitalized it that way.

            Plus id keeps it in lowecase (except for certian kinds of legal documents which I guess would shit themselves if it was spelled that way, "Id"). And the name Doom is supposed to be spelled DOOM.

            I think they just like fucking with us :)
