My name is a sort of a something of my real name.

I'm sure a few of you can figure it out.

I have no idea at all where mine came from - I just thought I'd be 'GoodGuy' for no other reason than I felt like it!

I pieced mine together from the back of sugar packets in 1923.

What can I say?

Every day I join IRC to the calls of 'Cat Killer' and 'Hide your felines'

Heh

Ook, where to start...

My first memory of using a nick was back in the days of Quakeworld, I was known as Apocalypse Rider (I was about.... 13 or so at the time. Hormones suck) , which I later shortened (to make room for my first clan tag, [MoR] and l33ted with copper letters and a golden 3 instead of the e's etc.

After about a year and a half, and a string of shitty matches (I was pretty crap back then) I decided that I should start anew, so I needed a new name. I came up with the name MegaDeth, which at the time I thought was original (it had suddenly come into my head, I didn't remember seeing it anywhere) but later I realised it was a band name.. meh, c'est la vie.  My theory is that I was reading an article in Wired about Fry's and some kid had bought a MegaDeth CD, and the name had been subliminally post-itted onto my brain.

I still use the nickname MegaDeth on just about anything, irc, games etc. Apart from this forum, for some reason (I'm not sure why, but meh) This name I randomly pulled out of the air (I thought it sounded pretty funny) and here we are.

Now, wasn't that FUN?!

Royston, isn't he a rapper bloke?
D12 are a rapping group..

Anyway - I wanted to play Starcraft on battlenet, but I needed a nick, I wanted to be firebat <don't laugh... I wasn't feeling very original...> but obviously that was taken.. Flamekebab sprung into my head, and it went from there.. now I am called Flamekebab or Kebabo or Flame.. depending who's speaking or how lazy they are..

When I went to register my nick, I had just came out of a Physics Lesson. I was obviously doing something with atoms and nuclear power or something like that, and had liked the sound of the name Fusion. So I tried that. Alas, someone had already registered with that nick a few weeks earlier (and has yet to post). So I put a "Cold" in front of it, and voila! Cold Fusion. The clean and great power source that hasn't been discovered, until now... ;)

Or it was something like that anyway... unless it was just a random spur of the moment decision. ;)
