    Where did your username come from?

    I bet this has been talked about before, but i find it kinda interesting..

    I'll start. Little Miss isn't from those cute little story books, i got it from a lad at my last school who just couldnt remember my name. Because i'm not the tallest of people he just simply refered to me as "little miss". I found it quite amusing.

    Next..

    Used it for years and years around bulletin boards and internet forums, irc etc... originally used to mplexer or multiplexer I think becuase they had come up in a uni lecture the day I started to use it.

    lack of Viagra.



    Not really. I can get into tiny spaces, and am usually happiest lurking in them, so..Sir Bendy worked quite well. Even my web subdomain uses it.

    I was always being called the tech guy so it stuck. The underscore hails from my days as a db programmer - old_habits_die_hard.

    Mine has been shortened from "Gattancha" which I used back in my CounterStrike days

    Gattancha, was taken from the film Gattaca, which was on when I first started playnig CS and needed an ID...

    It came from

    Well mine came from two sources, the first being my first name and the second being my second name. It originally came from my birth certificate though.

    As you would imagine it did take some time for me to come up with the user name, although in recent years I have started using italex.
