To keep myself from slowly sinking into an abyss while in anticipation for Poodle Hat, I've decided to start a new topic; what's the meaning of your screen name? How'd you come up with it? Did you have difficulties finding one availible?

Mine is an interesting story, but I'll save mine for a little later, I'd much rather hear yours.

My Name

Here, it is quite easy to guess why myscreen name is what it is and that is why I will focus on my other cyber name "Mr. Vertigo" Way way back when I was a young lad I had a chance to be a DJ for dementia radio so being the ambitious young man that I am I decided that I would Do it!!!

Before I could just cast I needed a DJ name! I saw other DJs do their shows and noticed a theme "Dr. Demento" and many others, catching that these shows all had some theme of insanity to them or dementia I set out on a three day walk through the mean streets of chicago and when that turned up fruitless I just looked in a book of synanyms and noticed that Vertigo was poppng up a lot so now for a first name mmm Mike Vertigo... no no no Jimmy Vertigo I think not, so after much more searching I just said "Scrap It" andstarted thinking of titles of respect "Dr. Vertigo" mmm between Dr. Dre and Dr. Demento I thought that might be a little over done and played so mmm Senior Vertigo no my spanish accent isnt all that great so Mr. Vertigo was born and when one is needed for some reason my first name is Antonio. Antonio Vertigo

Enough of my lame story let me hear yours!

Well alright, here goes:
When I was first introduced to the Internet, I got myself an e-mail account at Hotmail. But, I required a screen name, and I drew a blank. I had no idea what name to give myself and using my real name would just be stupid. So I thought it over for about a day. During that day, I considered my interests and I realized that videogames were my real passion in life. Being a Nintendo fan and a (at the time) proud owner of a new Nintendo 64, I decided to name myself 6Tfour. However, Hotmail wouldn't accept that name, so lo and behold, "syxtfour" was born.
I find it amazing too that not one site or account I've registered for has a "syxtfour". For all I know, I'm the only one who has ever thought up of that name. So if you ever spot the name syxtfour online, there's a very good chance its me. So drop me a line if you see me.

P.S This is my 64th post! :D

WHOA, dude. That avatar has GOT to go. 1) It's too long, and B) That image isn't allowed, since its off of weirdal.com.

Interesting SN, though

My SN is from my other obsession: The Simpsons. Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe it is the 127th episode. Troy McLure was hosting and introduced, "Homer Simpson-originally known as: Captain Wacky".

Well mine really has to do with my name :sleepy: . I was signing up for a hotmail account and I had no good Screen Name ideas. My name is
John David Turnbull and I am the 2nd.(I was named after my grandfather.) And I thought I would have it be JDTurnbull27 :biggrin: , but it was taken up already, so I put the 2 after 27. And now I use that Screen Name for ALmost everything. That is how I got mine! :)

The Secret Origin of the Space Dingo (Shhh! Don't tell anyone!)

The dingo has taken control of popular culture in recent years. Besides David Letterman's fascination with them, references to dingoes have popped up everywhere from the Tick cartoon to the Simpsons to Buffy the Vampire Slayer. And the only thing that makes a dingo cooler is if you shoot him into space. I have other net identities as well. But here is my Al identity. The Space Dingo!
