I had the logo of minor LA glam band Jetboy painted on the back of my leather jacket many years ago, and we both got our name from the New York Dolls song.
I started as jetboy on WebmasterWorld, used jetboy_70 from 2002 after I forgot my login, and am now back to being jetboy again!
Some of them I knew by their photos on their sites, and had a hard time remembering their 'real names' instead throughout the week. LOL
My own username is simply my name: Lynn Terry. That seemed to stump some of the people I met at PubCon :p

be careful not to get me confused with another poser [webmasterworld.com] who lurks here
However the domain name minneapple was taken and I didn't want anyone to think I was related to the domain name so I dropped the e.
I was thinking about using MurderApolis but the domain was taken also.
I used to manage a business downtown in the mid 90's, some nights we could have a couple of drive by or random shootings on the block.
Walking to work at 3:00 am with what looks like a double barreled shotgun is good fun.
BTW, this is my first post. I'll blame this rare appearance on everyone I met in Boston and re-met from Bourbon! Great networking! See you in Vegas. (Going back to lurking!)
Only I am ie, nor y. Can't say why though.
I also have other nicks for all the main forums, so you may know me but not know me, hehe.
Reason being that when I started I was so scared by the WebmasterWorld seniors that I thought they'd find our sites and outrank them (serious). Now I have been around a little while (I seriously lurked for a few years) I reaslise how far ahead we were back then. Kinda cool. Helps having a father that was online since 1994 and built the first site in the state.
I think we originally had a couple of other nicks for here too. Funny how times change. When I look back over some of my posts I grimmace, it's great.
Also twist, care to pass whatever your into across here, it sounds great...
One day, sometime soon, something will go wrong for at least one of your sites. The only way to survive is to have many sites, many varieties, many flavors.
Accept that they won't all smell of roses every day, but that most days, most of them will ;)
I was drunk, so were my friends, and the name stuck - for the duration of the trip at least.
My daddy (from Southern Rhodesia) tried and tried to explain what a 'sticky wicket' was.
By that time, and born here in California, I was so thoroughly
Californiated that I just didn't give a #*$!.
I take it a Sticky Wicket has to do with English Baseball.
In American BB, some players cheat by spitting on the ball.
In English BB (if I have this right) they smear their opponents' Jai Alai rackets with sugar syrup.
Details aside, one thing stands clear, common and absolutely necessary.
Fair play. _Larry-Hatch
I studied geology and always loved the look of malachite, the green coloured copper-bearing ore. As I have copper-coloured hair and green eyes, it seemed an apt name.
It's also supposed to help arthritis sufferers, and be good for aiding interpretation and transfer of information. I'll take all the help I can get ;)
One day I noticed one little rooster that was getting picked on alot, I grabbed him and noticed he had a bad eye so I decided to make a pet of him, build him his own cage, that sort of thing. I needed to name him as he was now a pet and wouldn't be getting eaten.
At the same time, I was creating a board game using supplies I had ordered from Avalon Hill, the kind of game with a map and tiny little hexes all over it, i had mapped out the Middle East and the game was to simulate a Mid-East war. To further this cause, I had been studying up on the various wars of the region.
So, while trying to think of a name for a one eyed rooster, the only one eyed person who cropped up in my head was the Israeli General, Moishe Dyan. So, the little rooster became Moishe Chickan.
Over the years I have had many pets but he has always been my favorite so I use his name as a nick, company name and for a few other things.
Mike Richardson Jr. AKA Moishe
PS, this is my 300th post, I thought it would be appropriate:)
