    Hi all,

    Just wondered if there was a story behind your certforums username? Mine is quite random so I can use it for most things. It was my user name given to me by uni.

    How about you?

    It's my name, and my year of birth.

    I can still remember my student number from Uni ... 175183

    nXPLOSi is a shorter version of nXPLOSiVE which was my handle from playing online games, it all started when I played C&C Red Alert, where the limit for a name was 9 characters, its stuck ever since through RTCW, SOF2, COD...even though I no longer have time for games! :(

    "Stuzzle" is an evolution of "Stuzrol" which was my first username for many years, which in itself is just the first 3 letters of my first name and surname with a Z in the middle

    probably used the least appropriate tools as well:P
