    Explain Your Handle Thread

    Hans and I were chatting this morning and could not find a thread for explaining handles.

    mine is a play on spelling, but it means that if the sound pressure is high enough, you will feel weightless.

    A long time ago, I took mine and all my brothers names and made aliases for our XBOX Live gamertags. Elryt Namrogo is my name scrambled,Tyler Gorman...but I kinda cheated and used the original Irish last name "O'Gorman" to have the extra "o" at the end.

    um...



    Prior to the old un-offical PRS forum morphing into the Gear Page, I used my real name on all of the forums.

    When the official forum and VR took over, I went back under cover - there are some nutty people in the world...

    I go by my real first name on all the forums I am on.
    Unfortunately Corey was taken here and a few other sites, so I had to add "T" to it for the first letter in my last name.

    Mine is a little more... umm, difficult to explain. In high-school my friend had this ex-girlfriend who was a total c@#t, so we started calling her sekunda-c@#t. We then wrote a song about her in my metal band and called it Sekunda. It just kinda stuck with me ever since...

    I'm not only a MEGADETH fan but I also find great humor in the stories of space aliens and government conspiracy theories.

    I was working in sales at a bank in Delaware when my boss gave me the nickname. I helped a lot of my team members out on an informal basis, and the manager started talking about how I kept the team together. So he nicknamed me Bobby Digital after a music producer (the RZA) - even though no one else knew what he was talking about. That was quickly shortned to Bobby D for ease of use.

    Mine is symbolic of my lack of creativity when signing up for forums.

    Garrett is my middle name, and the name most people call me. I have no creativity when it comes to screen names. I don't bother to capitalize the "g" out of pure laziness.

    Saruman the melodic wizard



    (Hmm I actually need this picture with Saruman holding a metallic red Santana )

    I first read Lord of the Rings in '78. Then, mid '80s when I started programming VIC20 and Commodore 64, I created a start screen for my little programs that read "Saruman Softronics". I liked the alliteration, and I thought the good-turned-evil wizard was more interesting than the good wizard. (And besides, the name Gandalf was slightly tainted a bit in Holland because of some sort of erotic magazine from the '70s).
    Then I started gaming, and I used the handle Saruman; my mailserver uses domain saruman.biz; most of my forum and wiki handles are Saruman or variants thereof. And of course there's the satisfaction of naming my smartphone "Palantír" etc.

    My name is John. When I bought my 1st PRS and signed up for BaM, I was playing in a band called Chief Beef. I also like to eat beef and I like beefy guitar tones, and John Beef has a nice ring to it too.
