Default The story behind your username

What's the story behind your username?

Mine is completely random, at first I though of hacker but I was worried how it would come across and voila clacker was born.

I came up with mine when trying to get a name of StarCraft II for my bro-in-law. Play off the iDevice theme.

SSC are the initials of my full name.

456 as SSC is rather short and often already taken.

I was once an SSC789 lol but i thought 456 looked better.

I've never used my name on a forum. I suppose I like my anonymity.

Well, I am 27 but was raised by old fashioned people and have adopted their values. I am Old-School at heart. My business does PC service calls like an old-time doctor (making house calls) so I named my business "Old School PC Services". Hence my user-name on this forum.

I felt lazy today so I had to do a little search for an explanation I've made before, so here it is:

So, one boring evening in 1996, I jumped online and joined an IRC channel my friend told me about and I had to pick a nick, so, figuring that there were probably a couple dozen people wandering around with my given nickname, I'd use a variant that had popped up recently (at the time), partly due to the popularity of a certain "copier guy " skit on SNL.

"The Dangerous One" became DngrsOne (we were limited to eight letters back then) and eventually Dngrsone. It turned out to be unique on das intarweb and I have been haunting it for nearly a decade already.
