Immersed Tester

I registered the domain name ImmersedTester.com on a spur of the moment decision. I was trying to brainstorm cool names / nicknames for myself as a software tester. The writers of the blogs I read often use a nickname to describe themselves or their site like the Evil Tester and TestHead and I though I should do the same.

What would make sense? I like scuba diving. I like software testing.. Hmm.. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary immersed has a few definitions that apply really well:
1: to plunge into something that surrounds or covers; especially: to plunge or dip into a fluid
2: engross, absorb (completely immersed in his work)
I think it fits. As a scuba diver I plunge into the water and as a software tester I'm engrossed or immersed in my work. I'm an immersed tester!

Sometimes its fun to be creative and brainstorm. Sometimes it's just a waste of time and nothing comes of it. I wonder which this will be? As of now the domain just forwards here. =)

Another option could be immersedtesting.com. That could be a cool name for a website and/or consultancy. It depends on how broad I want the site to be and whether or not I can get other people to contribute.

Or if I want to be inclusive or broader how about Immerse Development aka immersedev.com?
