OK, here's mine. Haf is short for Haflinger (the horse), my sreen name as long as I can think and my real life moniker too. If you call me I will defenitely respond to both, my real name and my moniker.




This is my 1st post here. WooHoo. My username has been my nickname for the past 30 years. Someone gave it to me in high school and it stuck. I used it for my DJ name back when I was in College Radio. Captain is an honorary title and term of endearment. Roosh is a derivation and shortening of my last name. Many people call me Capt. or Roosh. Once in college a friend called me by my given name John another DJ was nearby and said "John? That's your real name?!" I said "Yeah! What did you think when I was born my mother named me Captain?" He said "Yeah!" Anyway been using it ever since.
Capt. Roosh.

I am changing mine right now.

I am not very creative or imaginative, so my identities on the Internet usually are my initials and random digits. That is how I ended up with w2538; it was next on my list to use.  I was not satisfied with that, and after reading through this entire thread, I had a brainstorm and was inspired to change mine.

I will now be known as 3463319.  This was my grandmother's telephone number (disconnected long ago).  I seems appropriate because her house is where my interest in telephones first began.  I will post that story sometime.

I will keep my avatar as my turquoise Kellogg 500, because it is one of my favorites.

As suggested earlier in this thread, I added my real name to my signature line.  It seems friendlier that way.  I am wary of showing my full name on the Internet, though.  Probably no harm would come from it, but I am somewhat of an introvert and maybe do not want the publicity, lol.


I like some, have just found this thread, my moniker is not anything challenging to figure out.
I like to keep it simple, besides if I made it any more complicated I'd forget what it meant.
"RDP", that's my initials, Ron etc. etc. and the "ipes" together with the "RDP" is the small company
I had making hand made smoking pipes for the past near ten years until I closed the doors in
February this year. That's another story on its own. Been using it for that long so why change it now?
Besides it's like changing your mailing address or email, ya have to tell everyone or they wont be able
to find ya anymore, of course after some thought, that might be a GOOD idea.
