    What's the meaning of your user name?


    I've noticed tons of cryptic usernames on the board so i figured i would start a thread on it. What is the meaning of your username?

    GNU_man was simply my user name on the first user account i created after installing Debian (Woody) the first time i ever used it so i used it here. Also when i created my account on linuxforums.org i didn't know if you could have spaces so i used the underscore!

    mine was my battle.net login for starcraft...back in the day I used to play that an insane amount...me and a friend of mine were undefeated in 2x2 play...and we did pretty well single also...that kind of stuck...any account name for me online now is genesus...I have only encountered it being taken once...and hopefully it won't be ever again...

    *P.S. I really like the symbolism of GNU_man being your first name after installing debian

    A fellow battle.net junkie! I was addicted to Warcraft II for a long time. My account name on battle.net was 'Grave_Dancer'

    It seems like i replied in the other threads, but....

    A long time ago I drank a lot of budweiser.
    And when I wanted to start an online username, not here, but in genereal.
    Budman1-6 was already taken, so I settled for budman7.
    I use that in all forums now.
