1) I know it's off topic.
2) It's boring lately, so cut me some slack.

Question:

Where did you get your account name and why did you chose it.

I'll start. I chose other. I chose my name because I like the Greek letter "Omega". When I chose that at sign up, it said I had to have a number, so I chose "_224" when it gave me the choices.


Edit: MAN! MasterChief beat me. Fine. I'll go second.

It's the first 4 letters of my last name, and I was reminded of an advertising campaign, collywog was born, 2004 since I thought that I wouldn't be a very active member, but then I got broadband, my life changed http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I want to change my account name, but not lose my details, so I am renamed to Charters Guy, since that is my prefered forum name http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif but I can't change it

Now all my Ubi/Splinter Cell accounts are collywog2004, easier for me to remember http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

GZA is my favorite rapper of all time and Liquid Swords is probably one of the best rap albums in existence. None of that MTV rap bull**** you guys probably hear and causes most of you to completely disregard rap. Anyway it's is a real gem and my favorite rap album of all time and one of my all time favorites.

I picked LiquidSword instead because it kind of goes into the whole sneaky or stealthy feeling I was going for when I wanted to make a username for SvM. A liquid sword sounds sneaky http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif. Like a Splinter Cell, or a Liquid Sword, it sounds almost interchangable imo.

How I got my name? Lets see. Oh, I remember.
The first time I ever registered for anything on the internet was when I got (at the time) my favorite game: NBA Live 2003 by EA SPORTS. On the back of the box it said "register at EA.com for exclusive upgrades and cheats!" So naturally I did. When it asked me for my username I typed in my name, Kevin. When the page refreshed it said something to the effect of "Due to the fact that there are so many Kevin's on this site, each will be given a numebr. Your username is: USERKEVIN636

Well, mostly everywhere else but here, my name is Freak. When I was new to the whole foruming thing, I joined a community by the name of www.starcraft-2.com (http://www.starcraft-2.com) (RIP). I was 11/12/something and I had a little Star Wars obsession. I called myself StArWaRsFrEaK. I later changed to Freak beacause I lost aforementioned obsession.

As for Lord_Bawls, well.. the second half comes from the single most greatest caffeinated energy drink EVER, BAWLS. Yes, it is really called that. No, www.bawls.com (http://www.bawls.com) is NOT a gay porn site. The Lord part comes from the former Star Wars obession - I had the name Bawls, I needed a beginning, I thought of Darth Vader, (LORD Vader) and took it.

Well, back in middle school, I had small stature, and I suppose I was a wimp to some degree. So my friends and I once were standing in line at the Cafeteria for pizza (every friday was pizza day doodz http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif) and the pizza ran out, and we waited for like 5 minutes, and one of my friends came to the logical conclusion that pinching me repeatedly would cause the pizza to emerge from the oven again. Obviously, that strategy proved fruitful only moments after he began pinching, proving my magical capabilities, which, combined with my general small stature and squirelly mannerisms ->(inevitably) the Keebler elf. Keebler was a name that stuck for years and influenced my life tremendously. Of course, some fakeass keeblerelf was taken already on ubi.com, so I added an e.

Ain't that the saddest thing you've ever heard?

P.S.: Yes, my name should be Ernie since he's the head elf, but you can go to hell.

Mine is from the Spin Doctor's album "Pocketful Of Kryptonite", a band from NY in the early 90s whose frontman died soon after they became famous. The last song is Shinbone Alley/Hard To Exist, and I took it from that song because when you hear him sing it you really do realize that it really is hard to exist sometimes.

I got my nick from the Philadelphia experiment:

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>In the fall of 1943 the Navy prepared seven gigantic Tesla Coils and configured them according to the calculations of Einstein's theory of Relativity and beamed them towards the USS Eldridge (DE-173), a medium-sized battle cruiser berthed just outside Philadelphia.

The results of the experiment were as stunning as they were awesome. The ship would vanish completely for about seven to ten minutes. When the ship reappeared, naval researchers and scientists would discover the horrific results of the experiment.

Several members of the crew were found decapitated and some seemed to have actually materialized as a part of the ship's hull, partly embedded into its structure. It appeared that the experiment had caused a complete breakdown of the Einstein suggested space-time continuum.

Ok, all of this didn't actually happen, It's from the Command & Conquer Red Alert storyline but they DID try to make it invisible.

Mind Blank is a spell in the AD&D world. It makes the spellcaster immune to Fear, Insanity, Stupidity, Gear Head, Rigid Thinking, Mind Control, force persuades and other stuff like this, and temporarily boosts all Will saving throws by +4 or +5.

Spell effects differ from game to game.
Sadly, only 2-3 games have this very useful spell. (Icewind Dale I, IWD : Heart of Winter, Icewind Dale II and i think Baldur's Gate 2).

EDIT: Oh, yeah and i forgot about the "_0_o" part.. That's because this is the only forum i use the "_0_o" part, everywhere else i'm just registered with "MindBlank". I put it in here because i already have an account but i don't remember the password. - That's the first thing that came into my mind 0_o.

Well. I LOVE Halo, seriously...And i played it for 2 years. Bought Splinter Cell, Accidentally came accross the Forums. At the time, it was a cheap forum. But all the vets and regs were there at the time, USA, TRUbored, NCEvo, Freaky, and countless others (god bless them). Joined with the name Halo, didn't work, the i just added a "99" at the end. Posted my infamous "Mudvayne" thread, and whatever...

I guess that's more of a "How'd You Join?" post rather than a "How'd you get your name?" post...

I have 2 names i use often and my current one which i wish i didnt have anymore.

Jpegbmx (also my gamertag): When i was like 8 years old and i got my first email account i wanted something that incorporated my interests. At the time those were Computers and BMX (Bicycle motocross or something i forget what the M stands for now) so i picked BMX for the well BMX and the Jpeg just sounded cool.

Ant1s0c1al: My friend told me a couple years ago that i needed a new name because Jpegbmx sucked explitive. So i took to a good hard brainstorm and came up with Antisocial, because i dont like ppl. Then to make it original i made it l33tn355. THus Ant1s0c1al

Drake = young dragon.
on = nice way to end a word, in my opinion.

Rearranged Drake a little bit to Dreak and attached the on to form Dreakon (I pronounce it Drake-in). Dreakon was taken for some reason (probably mine in the past but I forgot the password and email address I used) and my secondary name is usually just Dreakon13 (I was 13 years old when I thought of Dreakon, I am 17 now) but that was also taken. So I just went with Dreakon1313.

And that is where I got my name.

It all started back in 1986. Oh, sorry wrong story.

Forum name? Well, I didn't really choose mine, it sort of chose me. It came out of my desire to build and repair PCs. Like most starting PC technicians I freelanced my skills, fixing and building for anyone that needed it. Soon after, I came up with a name for my business called, Velocity PCs. Then it was soon after that I discovered there already was a PC company named Velocity-Micro. Seeing as there was too close of a resemblance, I backed off and let my name die out.

It wasn't till a little while longer that I first signed up on AIM and wanted to use the name VPC which was obviously short for Velocity PCs. Unfortunately this name was already taken so AIM suggested I use vpc410. So I did.

It then wasn't long after that I stumbled upon these forums before the release of the original Splinter Cell for the PC. Being my very first forums to sign up on, I thought that I would only stay here for a few days and just watch what was going on. So I signed up as vpc410 and little did I know that what I thought would only be a few days had really turned into 2 years. Since then I've become a moderator and have created and evolved a website in 2 years which was originally inspired by the PC version of Splinter Cell. So, you see, the place that I never even thought about joining has altered my life, opened up new talents that I never even knew I had, and has given me something that I always thought was beyond my reach.
