Then, of course, there's JollyK, the famous superhero whose power is blinding supervillains through the use of non-validating, ancient, and otherwise hideous HTML design.
Or was that me too?
Radial: OUCH! That's going to give me nightmares.
Kirby: I have the same kind of dog, I think. We hardly have to clean up after the 5-year-old nephew visits: just let the dog loose.
Rani: thanks for starting the thread. I tend to get a kick out of 'em myself.
I always thought there was a motorbike background to that one HawkGirl?
<---- back in the day I was known for my exploits in hacking a certain IM client to make it do things it wasn't designed to do. I can't say more than that ;-)
Someone else nicknamed me that and it stuck.
Okay, I was born Paul Farwig. But my mother and father deserted me at birth, and I was adopted by a couple who after two daughters were unable to have any more children, and desperately wanted a son. They appropriately renamed me 'Matthew' (God's gift) and naturally with adoption my name changed to their name, Probert. Hence I always use my real name (and never a nickname), Matt or Matthew Probert out of respect to the couple who saved this abandoned child from an otherwise dire life in children's homes - to use a pseudonym or nickname would be disrespectful to them.
(*)Note, the waterwheel doesn't actually DO anything, like provide power. It was put up as a tourist attraction, all it does is spin around ;). And as a tourist attraction, I'd say it's not done a very good job.
At least with a semi-unique spelling it is generally easy to get this username without having to add numbers or more initials.
Though, like Pfui, sometimes I wish I had a bit more "annonymous" of a name for some work related stuff. I really don't have anything BAD to say though, so it's not an issue.
Does this come from Hong-Kong Phooey from the Hanna Barbera Studios?
However, in German Language Pfui has a particular meaning:
Thus I like you nick very much. It is cool, and I never saw it used as nick. Never ever. Thumbs up!
This is another of those threads that make you proud to be associated with the other members.
My real name is William or Bill. BillyS just sticks the initial for my last name on there too. I picked that name because most BillS or Bill nicks are gone. Billy is pretty unpopular so I can grab that pretty much everywhere I go.
I really don't like being called Billy (or Willie for that matter). At 6'2" and 190 pounds I'm certainly not a "y" type person.
As usual, it was hard to get that username in any popular website so I added first letters of my initials and last name at the end, not that much interesting nickname but at least it get me registered easily.
Well Rani, I really like your real/nickname.
Well I was going to choose Erika_Tabke, but it seemed a bit presumptuous at the time, since I hadn't even met the man at that point.
After a gig someone told me that I played the drums like a demon so.......
I thank you ;oP
Long winded but hey, you asked ;o)
