    batgirl

    Seems like an interesting post. . .   I've been the "batgirl" for about 15 years.  I first used this handle when I signed on at FICS in 1997, then a telnet only site.  I picked that name because I was working the night shift at the time - 11pm-7am -  and slept all day like a bat.   It seemed appropriate at the time.    Even though I work daytime now, I've continued to use this moniker everywhere whenever possible.    It has served me well over these many, many years.

    birdmove

      I'm a 58 year old granpa now, but when my daughter was a little girl I taught her how to play chess. I was beating her in a game when she made a majorly ilegal move to save a piece. When I asked her what the heck that move was, she replied it was a new type of move called a birdmove. And that piece did kind of fly over everything to get to the squrae she wanted it on. I've been birdmove on any chess website ever since. She's going to be 30 soon.

    Hmmm... maybe I could use a birdmove in one of my games on chess.com!   ... great story; don't forget to call her and share it, again!

    Byakugan_Chess

    The Byakugan Chess ("All-Seeing Eye on Chess board") is a eye technique that gives the user a nearly 64 squares field of vision. He can see and focus in on anything within a certain distance from himself, the range of which can be extended through training. In chess games, users of the Byakugan can see the flow of chess chakra within an opponent's chess structure. This enables the user to forcibly release their own chess chakra through one of the opponent's 16 chess chakra release points, cutting off the flow of chess chakra. Because this is accomplished through only the required amount of exchanges, this style of fighting is named "Gentle Chess". Cool

    I think you have to use all of the letters for it to be an anagram.  Like "Do Flash Mob".

    mythas

    Back when I was younger and playing world of warcraft, I couldnt think of a name for my character so i used the random name generator and it came up with mythas. I thought was cool, and since then I use it for most online games.
