What's that ancient symbol?

What's that ancient symbol?

Over the years (as in decades), i've had a lot of people ask me about the "logo" on my website (also in the signature portion of my emails). Some people see it right away, and others wonder about what ancient language it represents. 

Here's the deal: it's my name, "Chip."

i came up with it about 25 years ago while doodling on a legal pad. (i usually write in all caps, and was experimenting with making my signature a little different than the rest of my writing.) The three lines that form the "H" and the "I" also form the Roman numeral "III", which has a double meaning. i have that suffix on the end of my name, since i am the third in my family with the same name. Chip is short for "chip off the old block."

So now you know—as you click around this site—why the chips fall where they may.
