what does your nick mean ?

Recommended Posts

hi all,

 

well you all have a nick either on IRC or here on the forums,

 

most of us pick something that isn't our real name for obvious reasons, but why did you pick it and what (if anything) does it mean ?

 

to help you along, i'll explain where 'anyweb' (my nick) came from..

 

 

 

a long long time ago when the intraweb/internet was being formed (oh ok, around 1995) I was getting online using netscrape and doing some odd-jobs for people,

 

The 'jobs' were what I was interested in at the time were web-design and all things related (sparetime as I already had a computer job) so I did a few websites and made some nice money. While I was at it I thought about putting together a logo/website etc but only got started and never did anything (apart from create a few photoshopped 'anyweb' logos), however what I did come up with was..........

 

 

anyweb

 

which was short for 'anyweb site' design you need (or something like that)

 

so that's where I got/made anyweb from !

 

now tell us about your nick :)

 

The astute amongst you will notice that I also use the following nicks > webany (duh, it's anyweb reversed) and any_web and web_any (if i'm on multiple computers, which funnily enough i usually am)

 

cheers

moveax - Intel CPU instruction 'mov' and the 32-bit CPU register EAX. I used to code a lot of assembly and it just kind of stuck.

Way back in the good ol' days, when the intarwebz was still like the wild west, I quite enjoyed some activities which

included the use of apps such as nmap and the like...Scan applications. Given the time and my younger age, it was

in all interests to be "eLiTe", and everyone knows you can't be fully l33t without an x in your name somewhere (lol).

 

Hence: Sxan

 

The RR comes from riding motorcycles, I was riding a CBR900RR at the time.

 

Hence: SxanRR

It stuck on IRC and then I had a lot of hacker newbies keep msging me all day long so I typed two random characters one day and jY stuck.. its been like that for around 10 years now

Mine has no real deep meaning. In real life my name is Mark, however there was a couple of Mark's at my age of school, so I would up getting called "Mak" (sounds like Mac). If you take mak and rot13 it, you get znx. The reason for the using rot13 is that I was coding a function to do just that at the time. I have gone by various others but znx / znxster is by far the one that has stuck.

I always assumed it was znx and znxster because you can sort of pronounce znxster like your surname Sangster if you try hard enough. :)

 

My name comes from a project me and my friend were doing round about the time I signed up here. As it happens, said project failed, but the name hasn't changed and is sort of part of me now.

I picked Yaravi because it is my name. It is a very weird name I know.

It means melancholic songs in Inca.

the Incas were a prehispanic culture in southamerica.

The reason for my nick is simple. I love Linux and while creating this account I found the .name domain. You can do cool things there and as a IT consultant it is a good place to put my resume.

 

Thanks for reading my lame reason.

P.S. I will attempt to be more humorous in the future. B)

I came up with my nick after sitting at www.google.com and googling for random things and after about two hours, the name Katami was in front of me, with NO google results. Since then some anime has shown up that has a character with the middle name of Katami, which is aggravating because when people see my name; they instantly go, "OMG DO JUO LIKE TEH ANIMEZ!>!??" <_<

 

It was an attempt to be unique as my first nickname, "perfekt" turned out to be the same nickname as a cam-whore. :angry:

2. I am always trying to figure out how things work.

3. it sounds cool.

Mine is not too difficult to figure out. I've been posting to various forums around the Internet under this nick for almost 10 years now.

 

I've often thought that someone should set up a service (much in the same way that Web domain names are registered) to register nicks.

I think that was the idea of Microsoft's passport and some AOL stuff, although I understand there's ways of centrally-authenticating a facebook/twitter/myspace login.

 

Don't use any of those myself, so I'm not too clued-up on them, unfortunately...

my nickname comes from when i first saw Predator, and Predator II. then i saw AvP. i just thought predator was a badass and wished i could be like them. i guess i was trying to make it like, i am a predatorian, like im an italian (for example, im not really italian). it kinda grew into a name cause people i played against in some games said it sounded "fierce" and i hunted like a predator in the games also. so in all essence, its a gamer name. sometimes ill throw a 3 on the end if in the unlucky case someone happened to have the same name as me. 3 is also a joke with my buddies cause we all agree that pi==3, and that its the /ofallevil
