    Because it's actually my name Quite original really as I get called everything under the sun!

    Mr Laptop is common (due to my surname which is Hartop). Don't you just love kids?

    Whilst at a LAN one of the others (who we didn't like all that much) was using the name "Master of Puppets" so we all started changing our names to irritate him (it started with one guy using "Pastor of Muppets", and then a variety of other Metallica songs from "Call of Ktulu" to "Fuel"...)... one of the ones i set mine to was "OutLaw Torn" which then stuck...

    Over the years on a few other forums and so-on i used to get referred to in the short-hand "Olt" instead (thus the avatar), which i usually use (just this forum didn't let me use a 3 letter username)...

    My username is taken from the TCP/IP spec as it is the two basic components of a TCP/IP handshake. As such I thought it would be a polite and friendly username for a technical forum.

    My name is Sony's creation. When I was 14 I bought a playstation and sent off my registration card. Any post I ever got from them was addressed to 'Mr Jawloms'. I did one day a few years later figure out why! Presumably whoever entered my details in to Sony's database could touch type, but when they typed in my surname their right hand was one key to the right of where it should be when touch typing - my surname is actually 'Hawkins'!

    Was listening to Foo Fighters - Monkey Wrench when i had to think of one but Monkey Wrench was already taken so i went for the english alternative, Spanner.
