Default How did you get your forum name?

Well, I'm just curious. How did you come up with your username?

For me, the name "ixfd64" has a few years of history. I used to be addicted to the game Final Doom. The official site is http://teamtnt.com/ixfd.htm, and the strng "ixfd" seemed pretty cool to me. Final Doom had 64 levels, plus 64 was a cool number (I guess Nintendo 64 started the trend), so that's how I chose "ixfd64".

I'd love to hear yours!

My first computer experience was playing Colossal Cave on a old thermal printer terminal... By this I mean the display was a thermal printer... We used to save the "scrolls" of our game to study later... I think I was 11 or so... It had to connect to a mainframe via a 300 baud modem I think...

From the old unix game of the same name. I played it with a bunch of friends during college. I was probably the best player of the bunch. I'm actually insane enough to port the code to Java, but I have little time to work on it, which is a shame as I am more than half-way done.

From a long time ago in a chat channel, there were the server bots, BotA and BotB. Therefore i made a bot and it caried the name BotXXX. I liked the name and it is not used much besides me so far i can gather. I changed it into my forum name a long time ago when i needed a stable name.

I took it from a cartoon hero rather popular in Europe: Tintin. In one of his adventures, there is a reference to an animal that looks like a unicorn, and that has the name lycorn. Being an imaginary creature, I thought it would make a nice name for an imaginary identity in a forum...

When possible I always use koekie as nick- or username
since it's the Dutch word for cookie it's sometimes hard to get
Then I use it with a 666 suffix

I once was addicted to the MMORPG "Asheron's Call". Tau Ceti was (one of) my characters name there.
