nicknames/handles..what they mean - Page 12

What?
post #332 of 398
Well, I am a ham radio operator.

I use it on all forums I hang out at. If anyone is into vw's, and sees "hamradio" around a vw site, it is me.

 I've recently seen some usernames that sound like they have a good story.......

I mostly post at Snowjournal.com and picked this name when I joined there 8 years ago. I'm a civil engineer and like both topo maps and trail maps, so I do analysis of them like I did in the "Lowest Elevation Chair Lift" thread.  I ski once in a while too.  Snowjournal is the best place for me because other people in the NELSAP forum are also interested in ski areas themselves.

This was the nickname my Grandmother called me.  Seemed like a natural fit here.

What amazes me is that this thread will still pop up now and then.

Miss all of you folks ... well .... most of the time anyway.

So ... didja miss me Dad?

Son, did you hear a shot?  You know I never miss.

Map ... I still have a set of like .. 1955 topos of NJ and loved to compare them with the latest but now that I'm retired I don't have access to.  Dang but the Bing maps are great stuff and with the birds eye feature you feel like a peeping Tom or something.  Wife tried to toss my dear 55' once.  So I said in a stern voice  ... it's me or the maps ... and she was nice and let me stay anyway.

 Mine is no longer meaningful as I haven't been a Stoweguy in at least 10 years. Probably now it should be something like ECskiguy as I am all over the place in the winter.

Wow, can't believe I've never posted in this thread.

DtEW = Dave the Equipment Whore.

Appropriate when I was mountain biking.
Appropriate when I was doing SOLO 2.
Appropriate when I was climbing/backpacking.
And doubly appropriate here!

I missed you,........
but then I was shooting with a cannon and you know how hard it is to get them sighted in.

 It occurs to me that a nickname/handle should be chosen with the same care one would use to pick a tattoo. You are going to be stuck with it for life

I kinda feel the same way......It never occurred to me that I'd be Trekchick forever and ever, or I would have chosen a name more appropriate for a ski forum.

Harvey44...

Harvey Road, Harvey Mountain, The Harvey Farm, Harvey's Tailings....

It's where our ski cabin is...

And I was 44 when I got married.

Right, this is the only place I typed mine right.  On Snowjournal I forgot the capital M, and on another I typed all caps. I'm stuck with them.

It's just my nickname (Kristiina --> Krisse --> Skise). Originally used by a childhood friend and now only in use around the virtual world. And in my Kennel name (if I ever get a healthy female dog with good temperament...)
post #347 of 398
Mrs. Woodnut's class, year 11, Abbotswood School - teacher gave us all nicknames to rhyme with our surnames, supposedly reflecting our characters too. Thus was I blessed with the name Squawker Walker. That was the only nickname in the class that stuck... 32 years and counting.

What my friends still call me after an incredible day at Alta, hopefully I will have another
post #349 of 398
 Multifunctional....

Introductory... "Ken, I ski."

Questioning... "Ken I ski?"  (for when I am here among the gods...)

Exulting... "Ken I ski!!!"  (for those aha! moments...)

Two days before I joined the forum I was riding at the local velodrome with my daughter's club and in a head up the arse moment I hit the boards at the very apex of the banking and slid all the way to the bottom of the track on my right side. leaving my right arm, hip and leg covered in ROADRASH.

Just a nickname I was given at work on the NYSE because I'm a licensed boat captain . The 1 is because the name was already taken on many websites. If you asked anyone if they know my real name on the exchange they probably wouldn't know. Ask them if they know steamboat & they'll probably say, yeah I know him.

Snowy- for snowy range my local mountain range and ski area, and phil is an old high school nick name, i have no clue where it came from or how it stuck

Mastersracer only scratches the surface of my skiing interests.

I competed in all four events in high school: SL, GS, Jumping and Cross Country (classic, of course). I was also into USSA and FIS alpine racing especially DH. 25 years after I raced as a kid, I became a Masters racer. Almost 10 years later, I'm mostly involved in racing as a coach. Emphasis on mostly.

I love deep powder, steep chutes, tight trees, fresh corduroy and touring.

Collecting and skiing on classic ski gear as well as general ski history is another skiing interest. Any era will do.

If it has to do with skis and doesn't have a motor, I'm interested.

Real name is Tyler Wenzel. Just took the "e"'s out. Extremely creative, eh?

First love was a girl names Jamie. I used to sign notes "J'aime Jamie" and somewhere along the line it got shortened and then morphed into one of those cute little vomit inducing insider things.

I'm a lung doc.

 

Defintion: alveolus (plural: alveoli, from Latin alveolus, "little cavity") is an anatomical structure that has the form of a hollow cavity.[1] Found in the lung parenchyma, the pulmonary alveoli are the dead ends of the respiratory tree, which outcrop from either alveolar sacs or alveolar ducts, which are both sites of gas exchange with the blood as well.

 

actually....just thought it sounded neat

I couldn't, just couldn't come up with a good, catchy, evocative nickname.   When I finally registered, the field asked for my "desired username".   

 

Well, OK then.

Actually, I like yours.  

 

I forget how I came up with mine.
