    FYI:

    High = situated or passing above the normal level, surface, base of measurement, or elevation
    tower = A computer system whose components are arranged in a vertical stack and housed in a tall, narrow cabinet.

    In other words my computer is above all your lowely piles of junk, a very technical username!

    Mind you, when I were in t'Air Force, Mangoes were seen as an exotic fruit, and you rarely saw one.....

    They were just a vague rumour....or something alluded to in the Um Bongo adverts.......LOL!!!

    My 'Jawloms' was created by someone who could touch type and typed in my surname of 'Hawkins'. They didn't realise however that their right hand was one key to the right of the home keys. I've never failed to register it on a website. If they'd moved it left instead I'd have got 'Gawjubs'! It doesn't often produce anything readable, but worth a try? Of course it doesn't have to be the right hand which is moved etc..... You might get lucky!

    Apart from the bad grammar...
    A plea for a fun and interesting username that DOESN'T contain your real name in any shape or form - People like 'John' and 'Ric_' are just having a laugh - it's supposed to be a USERNAME not your own name. People who make their initials into a username are a bit cleverer - eg elsiegee!
    As for mine - well it just describes me - so that's it.
    Have you a hobby or great passion you could use? (as long as it is clean of course). Or something that defines you - such as the colour of your hair (again, keep it clean). I used to be 'The Red' on a few sites because of my hair.
    Otherwise, I'd go with the random generator and just keep clicking till you get one you like!

    A technique I sometimes use for passwords - start a goodle search for a word and follow a few obscure links and see if a word (that then gets mangled for complexity reasons) crops up that I like the look of.

    Maybe you could adapt the technique for your username - starting with MK-2 I thought the Thin Man nuclear bomb had some possibilities...

    A few weeks ago, popbitch had an item about horse names which had been banned or should have been banned - there are some good ones in the list A Commentator's Worst Nightmare | Features | Welcome to Love The Races! (but beware that some are probably NSFW)

    I've never understood why people need usernames (rather than their own name) but I'd guess I'm just boring :-)

    ...er, so you can remain anonymous in case of controversial opinions - or comments against your employer, or stop stalkers etc?

    I suppose it is not a good time to mention that I found your secret then? I know you secretly go by the initials LLD and it is down to your favourite song!
