I looked at the board and saw that I was .... 1 pawndown.
Well, I'm one person, and I'm not big, so I chose DaBigOne
Lava planets rock. Really pretty scenery.
had mine since IRC days, not creative enuff to come up with a new one
ITS MY NAME PAUL LAVIN
I chose the mostinterestingstrategicMrGrobeelectricborgkleiner first but it was taken so I went for snakesbelly which is an anagram for that.
Outstanding algorithmic thinking by @Snakes.
With about 3000 @borg on this site, I was hoping for more privacy at the end of the alphabet, hence @zborg.
A bit scary too? That planet looks way too hot to land on.
I'd quickly become pork barbeque.
thanks.. im working hard at being the best at it... LOL..
You all got to choose your own usernames?!
Figures. I get screwed again.
bobby is my name and DK is international short for denmark.so Bobby from Denmark.I choose my name as a 5 year old because I had to change my name because my former name Bent didn't do well in english speaking countries. As a child I played with a lot from US and Australia and they laughed hard each time I told my name Bent. guess why
I think you should have just kept it ... probably worked well with certain "circles" ... and anyway, who cares? it's your name! if you look at Thai name (where I am currently), you'd find far more to wonder about! :)
Interesting thread, my name is quite basic. Ca stands for Canada, where I've lived for many years. Badenwurt is short for the name of the province in Germany where I was born.
VULPES_VULPES, I think this thread is so neat. I enjoy reading how others decided on their username.
it's very long story going about 13 years back.. but long story short it stands "Sa- N(and) - An - 22" which are the first 2 letters of of 2 names...and "22" is my birthday
however I've stopped thinking about this long ago, but I'm still using it because I'll probably never forget it or the username
Hm, that actually is one I've wondered about. I used to have a tough time remembering it, though I think I've got it down now...
Well,I have two christian names,Johan & Wilfried.There are many Johans around but apparently no Wilfrieds,so yeah.....
Sorry if you expected an interesting story
Well AndyClifton I'm glad that you found my name interesting, I guess that I could have used Caschwarzwald but I think that would have been much too obvious lol.
