Screen Names
 
This is usually a fun topic to kick around! :D
How did you come up with the screen name that you use in this Forum?

I always say that if I used my real name: it would drive the Witness Protection Agents NuTz! :lol:

How about you?

mountainsam 09-04-2018 10:26 PM

We lived in Arizona 21 years and I was Desertsam. Then we moved to Missouri Ozarks so I switched to Mountainsam. Five years ago we moved to the California mountains so the name stuck. The Valley Fire of 2015 burnt our home so we rebuilt in the Northern Central Valley and thats too long a name. Just a few miles south and I could be Yosemite Sam

JamieGeek 09-04-2018 11:06 PM

Been using the JamieGeek handle since I got my first EV and used that for the blog--it seemed to fit.

Although I did get a comment in college from a female friend: "You're more normal than most geeks" ;) (Of course in college we also used to refrain: "Can't spell Geek without a double E"--yeah we were all electrical engineering majors.)

Hi Jamie!

It's much better to be a "Geek"; than a...

Hikes in Rain 09-05-2018 12:54 AM

I've been section hiking the Appalachian Trail for a number of years, in what we laughingly call my free time. Since I usually have a very narrow window to hike, I go when I can, no matter what the weather. One of my previous jobs was tracking droughts here in the Florida Panhandle. During the drought of record (the worst drought in recorded history) back in the '90's, I decided to go hiking in Georgia. You probably guessed it; the remnants of a tropical storm went over the area! Shortly after I drove up and started hiking, the sky opened up. Rained 24 hours a day for the five days I hiked! Despite the rain, the ground soaked up everything that hit it; never got muddy. Every spring and stream was dry. The trail club that maintains that area left 2-liter bottles of water at various places for hikers like me. (Bless them!!) One of the few folks I met out there christened me with my trail name, which I use here.

most people think im a machinist or a master at using dies but it's actually from online gaming.

back when i started playing multiplayer games online, i started to play a game called Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory. it's a WW2 game. When i had my microphone on, everyone said i sounded Saudi Arabian. (im not. im actually mostly norwegian.) so, as a joke, every spawn, i would run to the other team's spawn and would suicide bomb them; killing myself in the process. eather with carefully placed dynamite, a thrown grenade, or my favorite, with a RPG known as the Panzer. i would usually kill just my self trying. this is now known as spawn camping and is frowned upon.

since the stats at the end of each map included kills, deaths, assists, etc, i all ways had the most deaths. people started calling me "the die master", a master at my own death, and the name stuck. some one even made me a banner for the bottom of the game forum. sometimes, when i used the RPG, if you aimed at the ground next to another player, it would launch players in the air causing them to fall to their deaths. this is the "launched by the diemaster."
