What does your forum name/handle mean or stand for?
« on: May 23, 2014, 10:31 PM »
I'll start, but the answer is kinda lame. My forum name is just my initials.

Yes, my parents had a sense of humor.

My son's and my middle name is Elvin, after my Grandfather. It means "Companion, or friend of the Elves" in some old Celtic language I think.

I have owned the domain ELFWEB.COM and .NET for more than 20 years (though currently without a site), and also own a number of variations on the name including SITTINGELF.COM/ORG/NET...also currently without a site.  There are others as well, and I have future plans for them.

SittingElf was based on a very old graphic shown below that I love and wish I could use it for my logo and trademark. I don't know the origin, and whether or not it is already trademarked, so I can't justify it's use as my logo, but I want to have a graphic artist create something similar for  trademark, copyrights, and logo use.

Ha, thanks for the poke!  [big grin]

However not likely for two reasons - I doubt it ever will be pristine, not in my nature, just functional, and I like the forum name.

Also Tidy Shop is too close to Tiny Shop, now that would be confusing!

Just my standard nickname. Been called Reiska since daycare due to none of the poor sods in Finland could pronounce Raymond correctly  [tongue]

Has something to do with the letters 'y' and 'd' not really been used in the Finnish language.

Its actually really odd for me to work nowadays in an international company with English as the official company language and have people call me my real name... missed a few questions in meetings due to not reacting to my real name at all...

In 2003 my bike was a Specialized Epic Marathon which came with a mix of XT and XTR. At the time I had no idea how much I'd be using online forums for info and communication.

 I got the nick name from some high school basketball team mates.

Little embarrassing, but I've alway had a muscular build.   I had the biggest arms on the team….and the guys said it looks like have "rocks" for muscles.

So they started calling me "E-Rock".   The name stuck with me…..family members even call me erock.

Although that's not me, it's a small world for my name.

When I lived in Philly, I had no garage to park my motorcycle (Honda 750), so I chained it to the power line conduit that fed my house. One night, a couple of low-lifes wanted it bad and stoled it. My neighbor across the street saw the theft go down. Knowing my name, he looked me up in the Whitepages and called the number. Wrong Gary Green. A Gary Green, an electrician, lived literally around the corner, one street over.

Oh, since it was not me, my neighbor went back to bed, without calling the Police. :-(

Mine is a combination of my wife's maiden name and my last name, Runkle and Gebhard: Runhard. I used to be a runner before my knee surgeries, that left me with almost no cartilage in my left knee. I will eventually need a knee replacement and I'm only 38 [sad].  I was always running to loose weight for wrestling and became pretty good at it, so I ran cross country in high school. I wrestled in college and actually ran CC my freshman year. The difference between high school CC and college CC was night and day, so was the conditioning for college wrestling and college CC. Since wrestling was my main sport and the conditioning was so different, that and the beginning of my knee injuries, I only ran CC one year while at college. I do miss being able to run, sometimes walking is painful enough.  [sad]

I've always been described as "esoteric", it fits as my first name is also in the tail end of the word.  The "07" is of no significance…  quite fitting within the FOG community if you ask me  [big grin]

As defined by Dictionary.com:

es·o·ter·ic [es-uh-ter-ik]  Show IPA
adjective

1.  understood by or meant for only the select few who have special knowledge or interest; recondite: poetry full of esoteric allusions.
2.  belonging to the select few.
3.  private; secret; confidential.
4.  (of a philosophical doctrine or the like) intended to be revealed only to the initiates of a group: the esoteric doctrines of Pythagoras.

Mine comes from the Aussie habit of shortening names and adding an O,eg Johno,Thommo etc, when i was younger we used to go to the local lawn bowling cludb for beers because that was the cheapest place in town and of course we went to the "Bowlo"

My surname Larsen (Dad was Norwegian)in Australia becomes Larso,if the name or place doesnt suit an O we usually add a Y as in went to the Goldy on the w/end = Gold Coast.

Ditto to that Larso! 

I'll add you forgot the A  - Darren = Dazza , Barry = Bazza , Sharon = Shazza, Garry = Gazza

Deep Creek is a minor tributary of the Colorado River of Texas that originates in McCulloch County and runs only 21 miles.

It is also the name given to a widespread community of ranchers who live along it.

I am the fifth generation of my family to own the same land there.

I play mmorpg's and once needed to make a temporary toon that had to kill fish and the spell he used looked and sounded like electricity. My real  name is fairly common and I was getting tired of being slee99, slee1234 etc and since the name I came up was pretty unique, I adopted it for all my forum names so I would have a single forum name used all over the place.

Its the name of a group of my friends and I, what we call(ed) ourselves. It's "we nice". We played a couple of different sports in jr. High/ highschool together (there's about 12 of us). We got into the habit of saying " we're nice like that" (you could already imagine the phat rap rhymes we thought we were spitting) but when ever we would all say it and get the crowd to chant with us, we would win the game.

Our school had a heck of a losing streak, until we started saying "we nice" and all the sudden BAMM! Football team goes undefeated, baseball team goes undefeated, basketball team didn't go undefeated but we did win the championship.

So now 12 years later, we say wenyce to hope for great times in anything we do in life.

My name is John.

All the way from hatching thru high school, I was always known as "Tink"  When i was in grammar school, i was always getting into trouble.  One of the high school teachers was a personal friend of the family. We were in a small country school with 2 grades per class room and the entire four years of HS were in two rooms (home room and another class room.  Every once in a while, i would be in some sort of scuffle in the hallway and the high school teacher friend would catch me and the first inkling I had of her discovery was a very authoritative "That will do TINK."  I would turn around and there she was, just glaring at me.  I would dig a hole in the floor to hide from her gaze.  Years later, I had grown to be known as Tinker.  In those days I used to stop by her house just to visit, but she still knew me as "Tink"  All of my family and friends from those days still call me "Tink"   From HS days until now, most people know me as Tinker except for those who have met me since I met my wife.  She insisted on calling me by my real first name as people "should not have nick names."  Of course, she took a loonnnnnggggg time before she could call me anything by Vayne.  She still has her German accent, but she finally has managed to discard the V and has it more like VWAYNE.  To make it more crazy, my wife's name is Brigitte and almost nobody gets her name right.  her's is supposed to be pronounced Bri-git(with the hard "G")-ta .  Some just call her Mr.s Tinker. Most people do call me just plain Tinker.

The story of Wayne becoming "Vayne" brought a smile to my face.  I lived in Germany for a long time, and many Germans called me "Wic"  instead of Vic. 

My FOG name comes from the name of the cover band I played in when I lived in Stuttgart.  We used the band name "Kitchen Pass" for a few years, but it wasn't easy to explain what it meant to our German audiences.  We eventually changed the name to Max Fracas.  Just like there was no Hootie in Hootie and the Blowfish, there was no Max in Max Fracas.

Tinker,

I lived in Weil im Schoenbuch, just south of Stuttgart.  Toured the wonderful Mercedes museum in Stuttgart and watched a VfB soccer match in the old Daimler stadium, but didn't end up bringing a Mercedes back.  But the place I wish I had visited was the big factory with the sign that read "FESTOOL."  I didn't buy a single Festool over there.  Might go back some day...

My name is John.

In my previous reply, i had meant to include the following, but had gotten sidetracked.  This is a busy time with my day job and i wa unable to get back.

I notice a lot of us have used nicknames handed to us by friends or from work.  I have had several nicknames, mostly from when I had the masonry business.  Where I used to rent and buy equipment and had tools, everybody from owners to the guys in the shop would call me "The Non-Latin Mason." Many or most of the masons then were Italian, so a lot of my friends during those years called me "Tinkerelli"  One of my contractors was quite large in circumference and some of his crew (and a few others) called him(on the quiet, of course) "The Great White Whale."  The same groups that referred to him as "The Great White Whale" also began referring to me as ( with smiles >>> I think) "The Great White Mudman."  I don't remember which came first, but the nickname for me stuck for a long time.  Not so long (or loud) for the Whale.  The name that stuck the longest was "Tinkerelli"  A couple of years ago, my best buddy's wife was dying.  She was beyond recognizing anybody and could no longer speak with any understanding.  I visited a day before she passed on.  As she saw me at her bedside, she very clearly said "Tinkerelli".  By that time, I had been away from the trade long enough that almost nobody called me that anymore.

that is a fun tool to work with after you figure how to use it. I don't get into my shop as often as I wood like and so i have to go to the handbook nearly every time i try to do DT's. Other joints aren't so tricky, but the dust problem sort of takes away some f the fun.  I think some improvements have been made.

I have watched, and talked with the man who developed RouterBoss, very much like the WR, but seems to have better dust collection.

Humm yes he did develop the RouterBoss, after being the NA supplier of WoodRat's for a number of years. So copied the WoodRat then modified would be a better description.

And yes it does something's better, something's worse, and others just a little different.

At the moment I'm about 2,500 miles closer to my shop with a couple of days and 500 miles before I start getting my "wood fix".

FWIW There is torrential rain in Bangkok at the moment.
