    I wanted to come up with the most feared name on the net... one that would intimidate others not worthy of being in my glorified presence from even asking from where the name came.


    Obviously I have failed.(lol)

    My wife's first name followed by my own, if you must know....

    I used to be a chat host/moderator on a IRC site eons ago, specialized in the New to internet areas. We had to have nicknames that started with NB. I simply took the word browser and slapped an N in front of it.

    Because I'm a Tool, and a big Fan of being one..

    I should have put 66Six on the end, so I could be the most feared Tool on the planet..

    My screen name has nothing to do with me or who I am am. You could search to the end of days and you will only find someone that is not me.

    I also go by alphaoverload, back to the early 90s. Good luck..

    Charlie, always thought your name came from the Tennessee Tuxedo cartoon from years ago.

    Mine is my VW car colour.

    the Grateful Dead were not allowed to play at the Hampton Coliseum in VA due to crowd history. So they billed themselves as
    The Warlocks. Best Dead show I was ever at.

    treitz3
    t - Tom (first name)
    reitz - (last name)
    3 - In memory of Mr. Dale Earnhardt, Sr.

    Most folks pronounce it as "treats 3". It actually pronounced as "T writes 3"....as if Tom writes on a piece of paper. Yes, my last name is German.

    Tom
    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    Now that I am sober, I could answer better. Halen came from Van Halen. Thought it would be easier to pronounce then my Vietnamese name. Turns out, many people pronounces it 'Helen 'which again did not turn out to well.

    My fantasy baseball team (from several eons ago) was the Polarbehrs. When Optimum Online first became available, I
    wanted to use that name for my primary email addy, but they were limiting people to 8 characters before the "@", so the A was dropped.
    After polr is simply my last name... and no, I do not have any stake in the paint company!
    So, are you willing to put forth a little effort or are you happy sitting in your skeptical poo pile?

    My last name is Strong. Many moons ago, the founding Polk forum creator, Micah, decided to bestow this screen name upon me when this internet character was popular...
