It was the account username I was given when I started working (at a bank, and they seem to go for anonymous usernames).

When out drinking (heavily) with some former colleagues, one admitted to having this name at school due to his habit of excessive "self abuse" , around that time we were playing a lot of online games together and I started using it as a "handle" to annoy him, and it stuck, as these things do.

Stolen from a popular Japanese Manga/Anime since I thought the alias would be cool (at the time), with the A dropped since people in certain DJing crowds got upset that I was 'stealing' their DJ alias (in reality: I've been using the 'Frieza' alias for 7 years, and they've been "on the scene" for two).
Most MC's say DJ Fries instead of DJ Freeze which is how I consider it to be pronounced.
Meh, It's an alias!

Mine is unfortunately not because I bare a resemblance to Lt. Templeton "Faceman" Peck but because I had the skills of "acquiring" (through legal methods) equipment or supplies require by my friends in the days before ebay made it far to easy....

I was inspired by a film tbh (not the game) and I cant remember what film it was but I was sitting at the PC bored with my old alias and I heard it in the background and thought, yeh it will do.
I did play the game though

Because I used to work in a dark hole, and am unceasingly evil to all my users (apparantly)!

I acquired the 'Gonk' name when I was in school.
One of my friends decided that I needed a nickname. It was all that he could come up with in 30 seconds.... it stuck
Aparently, Gonk was also a Power Droid in Star Wars... Http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gonk

There will be people on EduGeek that won't remember the early days of EduGeek... before the bling new v2 site came along. The old CMS we used was a little restricitive and one of its restrictions was that usernames had to be a minimum of 4 characters. An underscore seemed as good as anything and then it kind of stuck.

'suppose it's my turn to enter the confessional, another boring one I'm afraid. It hails back to about '93 when I first got on the Internet. I needed a username between 4 and 10 characters and the best I could come up with was my first initial and the start of my name - tmcd.
I used this for years. Then one day I had to re-apply for a yahoo mail account. 'tmcd' was taken since I'd used it before. One of the options was tmcd35 - I took it, it stuck, thats it! Fraid the 35 as no meaning what so ever!
