I'm curious as to where some of you got you usernames.
Explain where you got your username, I'll start.

Mine is based off this game:

It came out in 2003, A little bit after it came out I went to make a username for some thing, I tried "windwaker", but that was taken. So I dropped the E and there you go. Been using the name ever since.

Being a self taught hobby programmer i had always looked up to the people
who could do amazing tricks by masking and shifting bits at this low level.
So i had dawned the handle of bitshifter and never looked back.

the word "wakr" always give me a feeling to the word "wanker", i don't know if this happened to me only or somebody else.

I always thought of "wakr" as "walker", so I get "windwalker".

sinsi was my dog's name (11 years gone now, but still on the internet).

What about shifting a whole word, and dropping it, rather than rotating it. Then, you would be in harmony with sleeping alone.
Alternatively, the double sleep could infer that other "amazing trick", sleeping with someone, or something--perhaps Sinsi's pooch, sinsi? Shocked

bitRAKE: Back in the BBS days I went by MCP (from the movie Tron, Master Control Program) and even released a fractal program on the Atari ST with that handle. On the Internet there was such a massive amount of information to sift through. So, I came up with this idea of a bit rake. Later it was brought to my attention that lock picking tools are referred to as bit rakes; but that wasn't my intent. Currently, there is no reason to change handles. For some automated web stuff I've used "b1tb0t".

Luckily, there aren't many other bitRAKE's - most of the stuff on search is me.

Easy, at the time of my user name coming along I was 14, My name is
Coty, my mom would not let me use my name on the web, so I altered it to
Coddy but on the first forum I signed up on, It was taken again my mom
wouldn't let me use my age >: ( so, I flipped it and evolved it to Coddy41.

My name has a long story which I forgot where it came from.
I don't know when I just was thinking about badgers, and in romanian "Bursuc" means badger. "Borsuc" with an 'o' is a bit more creative, and sounds better. Razz

This has been the handle I've been using almost everywhere else though (until I changed it here).

When it is taken, as surprisingly it is kinda common, I use "octarone" as per my email which seems to be kinda unique. Don't ask me where that came from, it has nothing to do with my personal details (name or otherwise).

My name + some random numbers Razz
Actually not very random. The first e-mail I ever created - that still exists - had 'Madis's all over Estonia and they all had some number suffixed... so the first free was 731 Smile

My friends used to call me Mac several years ago.
Later I added a year number to my nic thus making it more unique.

My handle is from when I was 10 years old (15 years ago) coding Visual Basic password crackers for AOL. At the time 3 character names and "l33+" speak were popular. "r22" is an abstract 3d leet speak capital "R" and R is the first letter of my last name.

As an aside, my old AOL password crackers would use the Winsock control to connect to the AOL MX mail servers and attempt a plain text authentication. Because I realized it was possible to have multiple connections asynchronously, and hold the connections open so multiple authentication attempts could be made before reconnecting my crackers were 3 to 4 times faster than everything else at the time. Again, this was during my preadolescence and since then my ethics have matured.
