Mine has just been my handle on the net for some time now...it's ambiguous and vague without being excessively generic, and it's a good way to increase the confusion level of a conversation, especially among people who like to express the word "someone" as "some1."

I'm sure it probably also says something about my psyche, but who knows?

long answer- my original handle was "the_spiflocator" on the internet (still my email...) but then people began to confuse my with a guy on a chatroom i used to go to (he was called "spliffy", the chatroom was called #scotland), so i looked through my really old sketches on school notes. one day we'd been making up words. my favourite was "zgroggrozootm" - beacuse i like the letter 'z'... so i shortened it to the part of the word i thought sounded cool...

short answer- i think it sounds cool.

That is really cool

I somehow got the nickname joe john in my school band. I don't play the banjo. My name is Jonathan so I have no idea why John is spelled the way it is... shouldn't it be Banjoe-jon?
I don't like my nick anymore...

Faithless`s "Insomnia"

I can't sleep, something's all over me,
Greasy, insomnia please release me,
And let me dream about making mad love on the heath,
Tearing off tights with my teeth.
But there's no relief,
I'm wide awake in my kitchen,
It's dark and I'm lonely,
Oh, if I could only get some sleep,
Creeky noises make my skin creep,
I need to get some sleep,
I can't get no sleep....

couldn't think of anything better back in '94. it stuck... but anyways it came about because i was thinking about archery at that time. never got into it much, even though i have a hunter's bow for target practice and annoying neighbor kids.

i cannot seem to choose a single "name for anything on the web". i originally wanted my name to be just Æ (another thing that i just suddenly decided on), but i found out you have to have three characters minimum in you name. so i opened up character map and took the code for that spanish upside-down exclamation mark. put it in the front, and then put a ! after the æ. only afterwards did i discovered that Æ was an icelandic ligature. i just wanted tech support in the first place, so i didn't go too fancy with the name. nowadays, i'm fine with the name. here's how to type my name (numlock on, must have numeric pad):

alt + 0161
alt + 0230 (0198 for uppercase)
alt + 0033 (my über1337 way )

[edit] btw, i also have a grudge against trailing numbers in my names [/edit]

[edit2] another question and answer from me. why did you choose your avatar? my first avatar was the opera logo, but something told me that was stupid even tho i'm a die-hard opera fan. so i did a stupid text trick and made my current avatar (conjoining of cyrillic D and E), but it was black and white. the new colors are supposed to resemble the greenlandic flag. i'm not from greenland, but i like to pretend i am [/edit2]

Something to do with the random configuration of characters which provide for the optimal level of grooviness, and the love of shortwave radio. Then, I shortened it, because everyone was abbreviating me anyway.

Originally I wanted to register "Bulldog", but it was already taken... "Bungalow Bill" didn't sound right... so I chose this one.

My avatar is from the "A hard day's night" album.

my name is just what i had eaten for tea 10 minutes before i had to come up with it. - i am regretting having an underscore though, it is decidedly uninteresting.

usually when i'm at lans and stuff, my name is 'dud' [for racing games where you can only have three characters, or 'nicki webster'.
i really like the latter, but no-one here except a few australian's would have got it.

I was reading on the history of the city of Avignon, France when I came across the name of citoyen Lescuyer. He defied the authority of the pope by ripping off a tract on a wall. For his courage and patriotism for the new republic, he was savagely assasinated by fellow townsmembers. I have always remember his story, maybe because we share almost the same name (I believe that Lécuyer is a derivate of Lescuyer) and I always liked the sound of it, it makes me think about this beautiful and adventurous time of the french revolution.

i know, i know, the typo. in a thread a long time ago similar to this, rm made a real good explanation as to why i might have picked this name(with the a instead of the i), and as i am too lazy to search it and quote it, i will just say, without really remembering what exactly the post said, but i just remember it made me sound all cool and mysterious, that, indeed, was the reason.
