    I use mailpup on other forums too and it is shortened from the name of a web email service I sometimes use (Mailpuppy.com).

    Who is Tom Mask?

    Sort of an alter-ego.

    I wanted to see if I can establish a name for myself :)

    If you really want to know where I got the name from, look up FLCL ^_~
  4. CMH

    CMH TechSpot Chancellor Posts: 2,039   +9

    CMH = CallMeHero.

    Old CS nick from..... CS Beta4. God knows when that was. Used to play CS about 5 hours a day in cybercafes ($2 an hour, why not?), and I got so damn good that people in opposite teams would leave, which created number inbalances, which cause me to move to the opposite side, and cause that side to win, and vice versa.

    Never had a game then which lasted more than half an hour for obvious reasons. And as usual, somehow everyone thinking anyone that good HAS to be a cheater, even though they know that AWPs are one shot kills, doesn't matter if they're right in front, or sniping from the edge of the map (ps: I don't know how often you use sniper rifles as shotguns, but I did. At the time, no "spray" from jumping around like a monkey)...

    And one day, I fluked a game and killed all 10 players in the opposite team on my own, and everyone was calling me "Hero", and I renamed myself CallMeHero for the fun of it then. And I kinda reused it over and over, and its become my online nick from then.

    Haven't played FPSs for 5-6 years now, and just picking up UT2k4 again. Single Player Masterful is just about the right difficulty for me now. Insta-gib game anyone?

    LNCPapa TS Special Forces Posts: 4,247   +448

    Back in 93-94 in the earlier AOL days a bunch of us regulars in the Video Game Channel chat room formed a group called LNC - the Late Night Crew. Papa is my real middle name. There are still a few of us LNCs floating around out there, but since I am ALWAYS able to secure that name I keep using it. A google search returns hits exclusive to me.

    halo71 TS Rookie Posts: 1,090

    Well, my ex-wife used to say...."you should have a halo around your head, you never do anything wrong do you?" It kinda stuck, and I was born in '71. So it doesnt come from the game title like most would think.

  11. MetalX

    MetalX TechSpot Chancellor Posts: 1,388

    Smash Bros Melee world champion? Wow. And I thought I was hardcore for being one of the 3 best of the 1600 people in my school :(

    My name doesn't mean anything, I just woke up one morning about 4 years ago and thought, "Hey! My online name should be MetalX!" I liked the sound of it so it stuck. Sometimes I change it to DarkmetalX if MetalX is taken. And just an extra tidbit... the X at the end is not one of those lame x's in names like xxOwNaGexx. It's part of the name.

  15. Mictlantecuhtli

    Mictlantecuhtli TS Evangelist Posts: 4,345   +11

    Quoting myself from exactly five years and two months ago in this forum (A bit about yourself thread):

    "The Lord of the Dead". Aztec god of the dead and the ruler of Mictlan, the land where the dead reside. Mictlan is the ninth and final underworld of Aztec mythology. The dead not chosen by other gods would pass through the other hells, surviving several trials along the way until they came to Mictlan.

    Mictlantecuhtli is noted as a thirsty deity who demanded much blood in his worship. He is often depicted as a skull or skeleton, a corpse, or combination of the three. His sacred animals are the spider, owl and bat.

  17. tipstir

    tipstir TS Ambassador Posts: 2,425   +112

    Whois the tipstir?

    My handle or screen name as been used since the CB (citizen band radio), then on BBS, Prodigy GAOL = GEO AOL, then DOS AOL, then Win AOL migrated over to the net in GAN 1991 so really since 1995 the name tipstir has come into play where I mostly help users like you here with solving your problems in both desktop, laptop, workstation, server, printers and networking in chat rooms and now in forums all over the world.

    The avitar image you see to your left comes from a design I created during the 1991 based on GIGANTOR one of my favorite cartoons: Which I use as a trademark to my 60 Games Titles I use to create for children and miltary adults. WAS -Windows Arcade Series and Tracker Games more simulator games.


    During the 1991 thru 2000 I've designed creative Windows Arcade Games and use AOL as conduit to access the internet.

    Since 2004 I mostly program and create skin mods and mini utilities for GBPVR. Today I do skin mods for HAU MediaMVP and might do MediaPortal, CTPVR, and SAGETV as I am very busy now..

    I write technical and reviews on software and hardware on epinions to help you the user out on what to get. So I see myself with a creative mind and a good heart. Just google my screen name you'll learn a lot about the tipstir me :)

    If you PM or email me I'll answer your question as best as I can with the knowledge and experience I have gathered through the years.. I enjoy helping other's that's more of who I am today.. In the real world that's what I do and continue online with my efforts..

    Well I hope that tells you a bit about the tipstir...

    Nothing fancy with my "Nick" My Real name is Brin & I thought it would be fun to have it shown alpha numerically.

    KingCody TS Evangelist Posts: 992   +8

    My real name is Chris. however it's useless trying to come up with any user names with the word chris in it because everything has already been taken (and I refuse to add random numbers ;))

    so I used my cat's name instead; Cody. I don't really know where the "king" came from, I guess it just sounded cool at the time ;)
