when I was a freshman in college about 3 years ago, I had recently found out about soulseek, which I used like crazy for about 2 years. Lived in a 4th floor dorm, and guess what, when I had to pick my name to use for soulseek, it was realllllly humid out plus i like typing in lowercase. haha.

Nerd= I got called that my whooooooole life for being the type of girl you'd want to sit next to on test day. I also made a profit for that.

Logic=that part... haha... I think it was the first thing I saw on a Time magazine when I was registering the name for AOL IM when I was fifteen. That was seven years ago. Now some morons took nerdlogic and made it .org and .com.

I AM THE ORIGINAL NERDLOGIC, DARN IT! They will not possess me... and remember, accept no imitation nerdlogics!

My name started when I signed up for everquest oh, in about 2000 and I didn't know what to pick so I let the random name generator handle it. It ended up being Talvaran. Once you got to lvl 20 you go to pick a last name so I just threw out Rabidwolf. For a while this became the name (sometimes shortened to TalRW) I used for D&D and anything else, AIM names, forum names, as well as my folding user name.

Unfortunatly I quit everquest a few months ago and the origional Talvaran is gone. So I am slowly in the process of switching my name on everything I create to SirGrant

My name is Ben, and the sa part is something you just add to make it more fluent in conversations with friends and such. Given to me by my sister, also happens to mean gasoline in Finnish. Extremely combustible.

First given name begins with "B" Last name also begins with "B".

It actually stems from when I first got internet access. I called (at the time, RoadRunner), and signed up for cable... While on the phone, I was asked what I want for an e-mail address. I was totally at a loss for what I wanted.

My wife was sitting at the table while I made the call.... We've called each other "Mr B" and "Mrs B" often since we got married, so somehow "MrandMrsB" blurted out of my mouth for an answer to the e-mail addy question.

It's been my addy since, and I've used "Mr B", or a close variant everywhere since. My heatware account is also Mr B, my eBAY is (oc)mr_b, etc....

Hondo Lane is a John Wayne Character from the movie "Hondo". I started calling my copilots (that were cool) Hondo- soon everyone started calling me Hondo. Since the username Hondo is taken about everywhere, I added "its" to "hondo" = "itshondo".

Mine is based off what I do. I overhaul Pratt & Whitney engines for 757s and C-17s.

Is there going to be a What Does Your Avatar Mean thread?

I used to be with it, but then they changed what "it" was. Now, what I'm with isn't "it", and what's "it" seems weird and scary to me.
