    I thought of mine while watching one of those "music/dancing/surfing...my anti-drug" ads; and thought about that and how my affection for 22's would prolly work well as that, seeing a s I wouldn't be able to buy legaly if I was convivted on something drug-related. Yours?

    I used to own a photography company called d'pix. At the time (ten years ago) I couldn't use an apostrophe in my e mail address, so I used the phonetically similar depicts, and have been depicts ever since

    mines the same as my AIM name and when I was thinking it up I couldn't think of anything so I took it off a coffee mug that my dad got through work, had rero on one side and loctite on the other, so I took the rero and added a 360, its an easy number to remember

    I wanted a name what could easily be condensed into a cool-looking abbreviation (inspiration, a poster on another board who ended his posts "~AbM") and would also be representative of me.

    My first attempt at that was "Slam_Fire", but "SlF" or "S_F" don't look as cool as "AbM" so I tried to come up with two words bumped end-to-end (with the always-classy capital letter in its midst) that made sense and worked together.

    I'm a furry, and I roleplay as a "skunk-fox" on "teh internets", so Skox was a given. Add in a healthy dose of gun-nut, and you get "GunnySkox", which squishes down to the nifty "GnSx"

    I've had this name since I first started exploring the internet. I don't know how long ago it was, but AOL charged $3.95 an hour back then I think it was, and was using Version 2.5. :what:

    I got the name from the Cajun bass boats I was running back then. When Cajun went under, and I switched to a Javelin, I was too lazy to change my name.

    I used to be a Whitewater Raft Guide on the New and Gauley rivers up in West Virginia. Just about every guide gets stuck with some kind of a nickname. Mine was "Wildcard". (the story behind that is too long to get into here - let's just say I lucked out and the river gods turned a lousy hand into a royal flush, so to speak)

    So in 1997 when I started gaming on the internet (playing Air Warrior on AOL) I just naturally used "Wildcard" as my callsign. People who knew me and became friends over the years shortened it to 'Card, so that's what I use most of the time now.

    I suppose it's a reference to my love of astronomy. I got the idea from the cosmic machine in which Jody Foster rode across the universe in the movie CONTACT.

    People call me Zero. My website is DgZ. A high speed collision of the two results in...

    Yes.

    Besides, plain old "Zero" is usually taken at most places, so I gave up even trying to use it.

    Some years ago a wrote some books and such for a popular role playing game. One of my creations for those books featured Cybernetically enhanced gunslingers or Cslingers for short.....hence the name.

    My wife who posts here from time to time became Sheslinger.

    Thanks Gunnyskox, it's also my (real) name elsewhere on the internets.
    It never ceases to amaze me that it's available whenever I sign up somewhere, yet names like "PictureFrame_BlueSidewalk_2000" are already in use.

    I guess everyone wants a name that means something while I just want one I can easily remember.

    My platoon in Basic decided that my nickname would be Bernie, since it was short and easy to yell and derivative of my last name. That was my online name since '93, until things got crowded enough that it wasn't distinctive any more. Adding my first initial to the nickname made it <rbernie>, and I've been <rbernie> since '95 or so...
