Wazza = A common nickname for Warren.
First time I was called it, was back in 1998 by a girl, and then with my association with 666 (Born 6th June, 6:06pm, room 6 at the hospital), became my base email address... wazza6_6_6@ hot....

I don't quite look like a rabbit though.

My husband once called me Queen Bee when he thought I was being a little bossy and I decided to use it, the 288 is because 287 people already had it the first time I tried to use it on the internet. I got tired of trying to keep up with different names so I just started using it for everything.

I thought Kadath sounded familiar...
OF course I have read most of his published work... due in part to my location ....

Mine is the most boring story of all. RbnDave was the first alternate suggested to me when I signed up for a hotmail account years ago. Someone had already taken my full name DavidRaboin. I stick with the Rbndave for everything I do on the net because I think there is something cool about the blandness of a name assigned by microsoft n 1999. It's my lack of fasion that is the statement.

No biggie with mine. I'd used it in another forum years ago & it was easy to remember. It seems pretentious here, but I only have so many brain cells left... what was the question again? ;-)a

One fine evening, before i had the internet, i was in 6th grade, i asked my mom if i could to the library to create this thing my friends were calling, an email.

I'm not real sure why i needed it, but i figured i should get one.

So i sit down and they tell me that i had to come up with a name. "Tim" was already taken. So then i decided to get creative. I thought of my family, john my brother popped into my head. Then i went off into a tangent about the game johnny quest that came with my dads new amazing computer, it was a whole 350mhz!

Then it struck me. Timmyquest...

I then started using it everywhere, for everything, next thing i know there are people who frequented similer types of message boards that i did. It started out with paintball message boards.

Then some of the guys i saw on the paintball message boards, i saw on the computer message boards. I didnt want to change my name because i wanted people to remember that i was the guy who was asking about the new paintball gun.

Next thing i know, i'm 19 years old and i've had the same name for this entire time.

You may think having this name for so long represents my desire to still be a kid. Thats simply not the truth, it's simply because i dont want to deal with changing it in so many places.

By the way, i still play paintball to feel like a kid every once and a while ;-)a

Just what I thought. Whenever I see your name I think to myself. "Timmy is on a quest"! :lol:

Way back there in 1987, after my Dad dared me, I joined the Army. After completeing basic training where I was mainly called, ' Oi ', as was everybody else, I was posted to Germany whereupon I graduated to Smudge, as did evrybody else called Smith. Luckily there was only one other Smudge in my troop, so he was Smudge and I was Junior. He left some years later, and I became the senior Smudge and layed full claim to the title. Several ' Juniors ' were forced to fight it out when I left.


...it's arrived and it's in English...

Mine too came about back in the days when everything cool was taken and AOL was first starting up. I tried Wolf, that came back as Wolf37865423 or something like it, then in a flash while I was lighting a smoke, using my TURBO disposable lighter ... well, 'nuff said
