    Figured this would fit in very well in this subforum, but very simple question. What is the origin of your forum username? How did you come up with it?

    I'll start.

    My name is Dave, so it's simply my name plus my old zip code. Now, it would more appropriately be "Dave12303", but I can't bring myself to change it. I have been known as "Dave12308" since I joined the Android community back in November 2009 so to this day, it shall remain "Dave12308".

    So, now let's hear everyone else's story. I started a thread like this over at MyDroidWorld awhile back, and it sort of took off. Let's see how it does here.

    The origin of syndicate is Google Syndication. I created my first gmail account when I was 17 (you can probably guess the email address now :) ) Thus, syndicate0017.

    Mine is easy, it's my initials. Quickest thing I could come up with. So I've kept it through the forums.

    Since we are sharing....

    jayrod...first 3 initials of my first and last name...ingeniously inconceivable!

    Avatar is an old picture I found and tweaked in PS of Anubis. I'm kinda into world beliefs/myths/Gods. Have a tat of Anubis standing on some steps halfway between realms with a bloddy heart in one hand and a spear in the other.

    about 4 years ago some friends of mine and I got obsessed with developing performance parts and ECU flashes for hyosung, a korean motorcycle brand that's sort of an offshoot of suzuki. ALTernative brand SPEED. I had the domain altspeed.com and blogged on it, posted links to new flashes, sold the few hard parts that we manufactured (billet rearsets, instrument brackets, a few custom parts for vintage british cafe racers, etc)

    Middle name plus last initial.

    Pretty straightforward.

    I was in the Navy working for the National Security Agency. Back in 1986 a few of us were sitting around and came up with nicknames and this is what I chose. Been using it ever since.

    btw, my old nicks, that a few people may know from IRC in the 90s and slashdot are penguin_boy and teknokrat, I'm still teknokrat on slashdot but I've hardly posted since the penguin_boy account got lost in a server move and I lost all my "karma"

    right, THE drJ had already been retired for a while 30 years ago, the actual nickname I've had for 54 years is sputnik, it launched the month I was born and that's what my dad called me (just my brother now, parents are both gone)
