See, now I would have gone with it being about a divine presence...
Just the name of a character in a song and I liked the sound of it...
I saw it and thought "I wonder if he's named after..."
Thanks Mate! Keep well!
Years ago I was fatfurryelephant. I think this teacher had a software at school called furry elephant, and I was quite rotund so I added fat to it. My steam login is still email@example.com as I can't change it.
Eventually I ended up going to a LAN centre where my friend played as Treebeard, so I became Bilbo Baggins. This was back in the CS 1.6 days. eventually I had to think of a new name and randomly came up with dirtychinchilla. There's no special story behind it...
I was in to old Greek people at the time
I was gaming under the username MoRT back in the RS Raven Shield and COD4 days, having been a big fan of Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels at the time I liked the idea of death's apprentice, so took his name - Mort. Have also used Morticus and more recently MoRT489, which was BF3's suggested username when neither of mine were available , so changed my forum name to match that.
Rainier Wolfcastle aka the Arnie character off the Simpsons.
Damnit, I always think of the 87th Precinct books when I see your name and I often wondered if that's where you got it from.
Haha sadly not
Favourite clip from that YT video is "Bye book" - good memories
I was bored with the old one and asked it to be changed. The rest is history.
During my edgy teenage years I decided wasn't quite whole so I am almost Stew. And clearly I was born in 1857.
First name + year of birth. I then joined the forum when I was 1 because I'm a precocious little scamp.
H2F = halo2forum.com. Was super active back in 2005 when Halo 2 was massive.
@Feek if just Scott is available I would like to take it please
It was a sticker on a bios chip in an old RM desktop PC back in school. Certainly beats the super cringey standard young teenager style name i was using to play delta force land warrior online prior to discovering it...
Mine is a combination of my then career, the CPU I wanted and my sheer ineptitude at selecting a forum username.
I had been a long time lurker of this forum, reading, educating myself about all things IT.
It was only when I needed to ask a question that I signed up. At that time, I was serving in the Royal Air Force as a Policeman. We had many (un)affectionate names amongst Servicemen, one of the least insulting was 'The Feds'. Much akin to the FBI.
At the same time, I was building a new machine about the same time the 1st gen iProcessors were released by Intel. I desperately wanted an i7 920, so the username FBi7 was born.
FWIW, I couldn't afford an i7 920, so I got an i5 750 instead. When that died, I bought my current i5 4690k.
About 9 months ago, I built my mate an i9/RTX2080 rig with all components purchased from ocuk.
I've never owned an i7 CPU
@Feek can I change me handle to - Rannoch
Handle? This isn't CB
I've changed your name, if that's what you mean.
Separate names with a comma.
