Whats in a name

It's time to be nosey. I often wondered why or how poeple come up with thier screen names. Some are very obvious. ND4SPD, CBRVFR, Tackho, and so on. I am sure "PETE" means **** stirer in Swaheli. It is the strange ones that get me. I do remember Sheeps story, odd as it may seems but what abour the rest. I often sit there and scratch me head and ask, what does it mean?

Chain, Abtech, baketech, Conqsoft and others, explain what gives.

I will say the mine combines my first two boys names into one - Collin and Ryan.

So lets hear it.

Re: Whats in a name

Most people consider the music I listen to(anything from Freejazz to NIN)noise.

So my first e-mail addy was allnoyz[email protected] And it is still the name I use everywhere but on BBS' I frequent.

Mo Noyz came to be when I moved from Florida to Missouri.

Re: Whats in a name

I was a Project Engineer for Dolly Madison/Hostess for quite awhile...still do some bakery consultation work occasionally. But it's been my email address for over 10 years...

Actually since it's not my main line of work any longer, I considered changing it, but PETE was already taken....
