    Alrighty it's time to update the old thread so here goes:

    *Caution* This one is super cheesy...

    My older brother started my family in the computer game by purchasing a brand new computer with a shiny new Pentium and a 2GB HDD. My father finally bought a family computer and got us a 56k modem and hooked us up to the intarwebs. My brother created his handle at the time Raven for mIRC and I believe his email address. Well I had to be super cool and have a neato handle like his so I chose Raven02, man how lame was that, he thought so at the time as well and beat me up. So I had to change and I was talking with my buddies at school about it and we decided the proper way to go about it was to absolutely destroy his moniker by using Phoenix the most powerful mythical avian beast. Well this evolved to the current spelling plus my high school football number. Now how did you get your handle?

    Your first pet was called Adominator (a little sausage dog) and out of respect you have used the letter A to be the first part of your forum handle.

    You have a book mark with the letter J in which you used continously when marking which page you where on whilst you where studying for your MCSE, hence the letter J.

    Am I right? 8)

    you're very close but no.

    There is a prize for guessing what my original forum handle was as well.

    My handle on here is boring - it's just my name. Previously, I went by various names including 'dimebagmatt', in homage to the guitarist Dimebag Darrell who was killed a few years back.

    My best friend in school was named Michael. His dad's name is Bo, so he was Bo's Son, Michael. I liked him so much, I wanted to be him. So I killed him and assumed his identity. :blowingup

    Seems reasonable!
    I had to create an email address when I first got started on the Internet about 7 or so years old. I like Cheeto's, which lead to my name :p (I don't know how!)

    lol, most laboured build up to a gag ever :D

    Aside from this handle - I also use Edwards80 when Metalstar might seem a bit odd.

    Edwards = Surname and the 80 comes from my race number back when I had no mortgage to pay!

    Arroryn has always been my handle. The character is my Tyler Durden. You know, they way I'd be if I lived in a world where you wouldn't be arrested for murder, necromancy and theft :blink :biggrin

    Yes yes yes I know. I have issues.
