    Just totally random, but why did you choose your particular username? I've seen some completely random names and wonder where the idea came from!

    Mine is simple.

    Its my name shortened with letters, First name, middle name and surname.

    Dan J. Forman - DJ4MAN.

    No i'm not actually a DJ! lol

    The first forum I joined was a Cobra replica club, could not think of a user name so just shortened/used the first 3 letters of each word for the name of the car I was building at the time (Pilgrim Cobra) to PILCOB.

    My name is Dane, seemed simple to me.

    Where I can't just use my name I use my Xbox live/Psn Id which is Titan gunned. It's an anagram of my full name.

    Mates saw me dancing on nights out & commented that I danced like big bird from Sesame Street.

    Being as I'm tall, it's kind of stuck since then really...

    1) it's to do with the TV show of the same name where they're doing surveillance all the time
    2) it comes from another forum where my original nickname was changed by one of the mods to 'the_wire' after providing much tech support to him on how to monitor and audit his home PC usage and providing some software that would achieve what he wanted, and it's just sort of stuck.
    3) Yes, I do work in IT
    4) NO I will NOT fix your computer.

    Cheers.

    Mine is a combination of my initials and the model number of one of Ferdinand Porsche's greatest ever creations - the 356.

    I'd love a real one, but for the past 10 years I've made do with a replica - a Chesil Speedster - based upon a 1971 Beetle.

    I find it so funny when I hear mum's calling their son's by their nickname.
    My mate is called Keith but everyone, including his mum, calls him Beefie.
    Although, his mum also calls him Max sometimes. :think:
