    Went on a Hawaiian vacation a while back, saw my first name was 'translated' to Keleko, that seemed to be popular on the net, so I tacked on my last initial, d.

    Keleko = Greg
    I'm GamerGD3. Lost all 3000+posts for my (now) former name.

    I am theredjacket, Have been since about 2003.

    theredjacket is the cool way I started writing it because not using capitals and spaces is cool, apparently (or at least was when I was in highschool)....
    theredjacket is derived from The Red Jacket T-shirt Company which was almost the name of a t-shirt company me and a friend were going to start in high school, because isn't that what all high school kids think is a good idea?

    The Red Jacket T-shirt Company got it's name from a model boat names the Red Jacket Clipper my parents had in their house at the time.

    The Red Jacket Clipper got it's name from Sagoyewatha, an famous Seneca Indian chief.

    Sagoyewatha got his nickname "Red Jacket" from settlers because of a highly favoured embroidered coat given to him by the British for his wartime services.

    I think that about sums it all up.

    Sahl is my name. 908 is because I didn't notice that it was put automatically. Though, conveniently, adding the numbers in 908 gives my age.

    Well..... A long time ago in 1994
    I use to go on a chat program called mIRC. I went by the nickname MisterX and I did "scripting" or simple programming for chatting. So I called my programs X Scripts Inc. A couple years later MisterX became so popular that I changed my nickname to DrkMagic which I use to this day online.

    DrkMagic (Dark Magic) nickname was mostly used when I played MxO (The Matrix Online).

    Albany? Nice. I'm up in Saratoga. I've seen Section 8, but it's been a long time.... So long in fact, that I can't remember where. Maybe Bogies? Ugh, getting old sucks!


    Oh yeah, user name was assigned to me by my first system admin back in the 80's and have been using it since (i.e. actual initials and name).

    I'm about an hour and a half south of Albany, and I spend a lot of time at Saratoga in the summer at Saratogas version of Springfield downs, lol. My username is pretty straightforward , first name, last initial, and birthday.

    Mine was created some time ago, back in 02' when you could get the username you wanted it was just Samwell. That was already taken though when I signed up for origin (and everything else recently) so seeing as it was mine over ten years ago I went for Samwell the 1st

    An homage to one of my favorite bands - Boy Sets Fire. Added the _ between words cuz the first forum i registered to (years ago) with the name didnt allow spaces.

    Plus, I like to burn things :twisted:

    I'm spanglechick on other boards / twitter etc, and often that's shortened by friends to spangles. Spangles was already taken, so La Spangle was suitably diva-ish, and also an occasional permutation of the spanglechick handle by my friends. I didn't go with spanglechick because I knew that was what i'd call my main, android town if it ever got onto Origin.
