    So how did you pick your user name?

    I often wonder if there is any connection or story behind some of the user names I see.

    There is with mine, so I'll start this off by sharing it.

    In 1998, when we sold our company, after the papers were signed and the windfall was comfortable in my hands, my attorney, who had represented me in numerous prior business transactions, turned to me and asked me "So what's next for you now that this is over?" You see, he knew me to be a "serial entrepreneur" since I had been involved in a couple of start-ups over years.

    I paused for a moment, took one deep, relaxing breath, and said. "Nothing. I'm done."

    "C'mom, I know you better than that. You just expect me to believe your going to cash out and sit on your butt for the next 50 years?" he said.

    "Yup. I'm done. I don't have the heart for this anymore." I said.

    So every time I would see him after that, he would say "Well heck! Here comes ole "cash out!" then he would proceed to harass me about not being "in the game" anymore and tell me how he was still just one of the working stiffs.

    What about you all?

    My name is Brad and my favorite dog was Rowdy. Had him for 13 years, so I used his name as part of my user name. Plus I like to fight.

    Mine came from AOL some 20+ years ago when they would assign you a user name if the one you wanted was taken.... Oh yea back in good old dial up days.

    Re: So how did you pick your user name?

    when i signed up at ology last year I had only planed on being there just long enough to ask a question or two then never come back. So when i was registering every name I typed in said taken and there was a coke zero sitting in front of me so I thought no one would use that. and they didn't. If i would have know the addiction behind these sites I would have put a little more thought into it but now everyone knows me as cokezero so it is what it is. and just for the record if I drink a soft drink its a diet dr. pepper, go figure

    Re: So how did you pick your user name?

    Hah this is a good thread. My buddies used to say "jaked" instead of "jacked". Then one winter after coming out of the wood work besides to train, my buddies saw me up about 30lbs from the last time we saw one another. So one of em was like jesus christ kid your a house. Some how it turned into Jake (jaked) house and the rest is history. Retarted I know but we're not stereotyped as meatheads for nothing.
