Hi all you ASKickers!


With the obvious abundance of new members, I thought it was time to ask a very old question.
How did you choose your user name?

I'll go first. At one time, a long time ago, we had 3 Cristina's/Christina's on the board. It got very confusing who was replying to the posts and everyone got us mixed up all the time. I didn't want people to think I was writing replies or posts that was really someone else's so I decided to tack on the "from California" to the end of my name since we all lived so far apart. It worked great. Now tell me your story. I see there are some very cool names out there!



Tick, you're it......

Hi Cristina,

Here is my answer....

When I moved to Neenah, Wisconsin I got AOL for my internet service (back in 1997). I tried several user names with my name or nicknames or incorporating CPA since I had been a CPA... nothing available.

So what to choose.... Hmmmmm......

I had just moved to the upstairs unit of a duplex. The duplex was on an island where the Fox River empties from Lake Winnebago in Northeastern Wisconsin (river empties from two spots on the lake and converge about 4 miles upstream). Fairly large island, about 4-5 thousand people live on it.

The name of the island is Doty Island.... so I used Dotyisle as my AOL screen name since I could find no other. Used it here as well as my screen name.

That is my story.

Take care,

Tim

Cristina,

Like Tim, none of my nicknames or combination of real names were available eons ago on AOL. I have loved the moon as long as I can remember. My last name is Weatherbee and I have always called my kids the Wee Bees. So I combined moon and bees to get Moonbees.

Holly, that cracks me up about the kids. Wee Bees

I call my kids the splinters, because they are my little Woods

Good one Tim! I was wondering what on earth yours meant!

Me, well. I love 70's Funk, and I play a bass guitar and love playing funk bass = Funkster

And the more obvious bit - I'm a bloke = Man

And there you have Funksterman.

Thanks for raising this one again Cristina - how are you anyway, I've not had many technical requests from you for a while???

Cheers
Jo
