    There are a lot of cool names on the board, how did you all come to choose them. I was nicknamed Merlin for the way I program midifiles, and it stuck. Been using it ever since....

    That's a toughie for me there!! I spent a lot of time gettin email addresses and could never remember them, rkelly2002@****.com and the like so I made a decision that if it didn't have ronnykelly available I wouldn't use it so all my user names are the same. All my passwords are the same too. As for changin the name when I got into the board and started making friends and getting to know people I felt it was a bit impersonal people sending me an email or pm with "Hello ronnykelly..."

    And so it came to pass it was Ronny (with a "Y")!!:thumbsup:

    I used to use a different name to every forum i joined but i joined at one particular forum and that name was already taken. So I had to come up with a new name. I'd just had geography so an American state made sence at the time.

    I started out, and sadly am still using Aol as my ISP. At the time I signed up, we were studying Poe in class and being a secluded, depressed, opium addict (J/K) I really enjoyed the RAVEN and good ole Aol gave me my random string of numbers. I got lazy and decided to just use the same username for this board as well, easy to remember. Like Ronny I have the same password for a lot of things, so I'm screwed if anyone finds it out.

    I think mine is self explanatory..... and it is unpopular/unusual enough that I don't get "random strings of numbers" assigned.... waht more could I ask?

    I regret not choosing just RAVEN of The Raven as my username for this board. I may change it later on but there are things that are higher up on my priority list.

    mine comes a series of books from an english author, named terry pratchett.

    rincewind is an unco-ordinated wizard in a place called ankh-morpork on the discworld, who is actually dead and reincarnated, after death killed him by mistake, so now he cannot die.

    the series is actually like hitchhikers, or red dwarf.
