No, it's an alias.

However, my real name is, coincidently, Ed.

Randall, back when you were a gleam in your parents' eyes, I was
programming computers. I remember how happy I was when my school got
our own modem. Finally I could stop controlling the computer by
whistling down the phone line. 

At that time there were only three computers in the United States. Two
of them were continuously occupied in playing "trek." The other was
kept open for playing "adventure."

Indeed, I remember when 1 was introduced to computers. Before that, we
only had zeros. Now *that* was programming for real men!
