    This is just a general question..I am really interested to know the meaning of the names people use on PCR fora, and how they came about them..

    The meaning of my name?
    well at the time it was my 'gaming' name to tell you the truth.

    Since then my name has changed many times over - but i've deceided to keep it for PCR.

    i remember the reasons behind Flops and Mucks ... But i will let them tell their story :)

    We've had several of these threads since PCR started. On reflection, we should have made the longest one a sticky.

    So, explanation for myself can be found in This thread :)

    El Linko. Sugar n Spikes is also a Beefheart song title.

    mine's easy, ciri@NZ (New Zealand)
    ciri is the funny bit I suppose
    It's the name/ID that I invented for a friend who wanted to go on a dating site about7-8 years ago. She joined up then never went on again & a couple of years later when I wanted an ID for my social activities seperate from my research etc & I found it on my computer. Lilian had never used it (I don't think she even went on the site again to see if she got any responses lol... I wonder if I'm still in some site's register somewhere :lol: ). Now I've been using it so long I can't imagine not using it. Even some of my RL friends call me ciri. ciri is me :).

    Cool :thumb:

    :D My nana & Grandad lived in a dirt house with walls over a foot thick when I was a kid :D

    You had to go down the step to get inside cause about 2 feet of it was below ground level :D

    I used to love going to visit them :)

    This is basically my "Oldschool" gaming name. Then i realised it was a little stupid. So now i use A_Toothpick. I find it quite amusing ingame

    Hi Cirianz

    Good to see you too.

    I do pop by most days to see what's going on and to ask the odd question or two.

    Still my fave PC site - the members are the best in the world and believe me I have tried a few similar sites over the years :)

    Love

    Gabs xx
