Thread Name: BS: Why did you choose your nickname?
Subject: RE: BS: Why did you choose your nickname?
At the time I signed on I was on a net at work, and that net assigned the code names based on the employee's real name. As you may observe, it's the first letter of my given name and the first seven of my last name. I believe I was still there when I first registered with MC, and to avoid remembering multiple names I just kept the assigned name (even though I no longer work there), and use it whenever I sign onto a website. I tried using "Daverino", which I'd used to refer to myself in some other circumstances (I used to make wine with the label name "Chateau Daverino), but was told it was in use. Haven't seen Daverino here. .... Dave Oesterreich
