    eddy -> Short for "Edison" (My REAL name). I was named "Edison" coz of my father's aspiration for me to be as successful as him.
    05 -> My "signature" which I put at the end of my SMS or Pager MSG.

    3rd Reason -> I used "eddy05" in all other e-mail and forum services, so I didn't bother to change it.

    Good thing, because all that stuff does is get you in trouble. Not that I would know anything about that..............yeah.............


    I hope that took the attention off me and put it on the game

    So that's why you don't want to post your picture here. You're afraid some of us might watch America's Most wanted or something ? ;)

    That is one of many problems I am worried about. Please delete your post now, before others see what you have written, and report me.

    My names kind of self explanatory, I just changed the spelling a little to stay out of trouble. Been using it for a long time on different game sites to.

    Maybe you should give up on the palms. They seem to be too brittle for you :) Just kidding. I broke mine once and learned the hard way to be more careful.

    you know whta to do when you break it and the warranty is done.
    you just reinstall Palm Desktop and have it register your device again, that will reset it on their server:rolleyes:

    Vehementi TechSpot Paladin Posts: 2,704

    Heh, actually I tell people I got the name from FF7 because they could relate to it, they knew the game and the song that went along with it, A One-Winged Angel. Truth is I got it from the Latin opera that A One-Winged Angel was based off of...Heck I've never even played any Final Fantasy game :haha:

    But I never did think of using Vehementi as a nick name until I heard someone playing FF7's soundtrack...

    with FFX of course ;)

    How did you choose your username?

    Ok, time for another meaningless post.:cool:

    Really, I am wondering how formum members chose their usernames. Do any of these names mean anything?

    My username is simply a shortened version of my real name.

    However, names like 'iorioresent' , 'znurk', 'acidosmosis', etc. have me completely baffled.

    Please feel free to contribute as you wish.

    Mine is pretty straight forward, Tim for my first name and Moore for my last ;). I have been wondering about P66's user name though, I haven't really come across any others like it before; care to fill me in Phantasm?

    what about a name like " Nodsu " ? Best I could make up for a name like that is somesort of a relationship between him/her and Noodle Soup :blush:

    aggisi, that one about noodle soup was pretty funny.:D :D :D
    -- Sorry, Nodsu --

    Also, was that a freudian slip with your location (Location: Uranus) as now I am watching my back. :D

    Rick TechSpot Staff Posts: 4,572   +65

    It's my name. =P

    My other online name is usually "God" or "UndeniablyGod". I was "JelloBones" for a while on the old forum.

    I choose "God" names because I have a massive superiority complex.. Just kidding. Although the real reason stems from my middle school principal telling me something like that. :)

    JelloBones was just something I came up with while researching "untaken" names.. It was something I wasn't able to find anywhere.. Although it is far cry from a tough guy name. ;)

    A long time ago I just decided i'd go by "agissi" on the net. That was a long time ago tho - This place is the only place I go by that anymore (other than my e-mail). Just too lazy to create a new account. Online in like UT or on all other fourms I go by Buck][Bumble or Bucky
  25. DarthKirby

    DarthKirby TS Rookie

    Well, about 4 years ago (when I was only 12 years old) I was flipping thru a Nintendo Power magazine. I was reading an article about Kirby64, and it listed various powers kirby could have. One of the powers gave kirb a lightning sword, and the picture was titled "Darth Kirby". I think that's where I got it...that was quite a while ago. But anyway, I thought the name was cool, so I used it for my Starcraft accout. Ever since then, due to lack of creativity or better ideas, I just kept that name for all other online games I played and forums I signed up on.

    Although I did make one minor change recently, on the Star Wars: Galaxies chat room, I am known as DarthKirby007 (or DK007) for short. :D
