I get asked this alot! A Djinn is a creature from mythology (basically a Genie, as in Aladdin's lamp). If you spell it Djimm it has my name as the middle three letters. Back through the mists of time I began using it as a Quake nickname, and when I came to produce my own website it seemed like a good choice for a domain name. Unlike alot of names on the web, not many people seem to use it so I've stuck with it. For the record, it's pronounced "Jim" (silent D).
