Title: Tell us a little about your Nickname?
Post by: Ecto1 on February 22, 2012, 17:02
Hi Everyone,

Not Sure if anyone has started a post like this but I thought I'd bring up some conversation about how and or why did you chose the Nickname\Alias you're using?

I'm sure they'd be alot of interested members out there?

I'll Start!

Ecto1 is the name given to the white Hertz vehicle in the movies Ghostbusters 1,2.  I am a HUGE fan of these movies and especially the a big fan of Dan Akroyd, Bill Murray and Harold Ramis.

I actually had NSW plates ECTO 1 but it got to expensive to maintain.

Anyway I look forward to other members contributions.

Ciao

Interesting thread idea Ecto.

As for me, I dive a lot and also like detecting on the beach and along the river. So most of the time I have wet feet  ;D

Mine is easy... my first detector was a Gold Snoop Pro - hence Snoopy. 36 is my favourite number... don't know why. Maybe I won enough on the roulette in my younger years betting on 36 red :)

great idea. Mine has nothing to do with detecting and everything to do with hunting. ;)
I own a PSE Bowmadness compound bow.  :)
hence PsePete. Peter being my real name.

Mine's one I used to use on a fishing Forum and just carried it over. 

As a kid I went on a yearly family fishing holiday to Coffin Bay SA for the beach fishing - specifically targeting Australian Salmon aka Sambo's.  Still get back there every now and again - love the place.

Before the internet I ran a BBS (bulletin board system) a really small version of the WWW but used direct dial up connections.

Someone uploaded something called a divx movie one day.  I was told it was a full movie and it was 700meg in size!! which blew my mind, this was unheard of around that time.

The name of the movie was "The Matrix".  I swear I watched that movie 100 times!  So thats where the "Neo" comes from.

81 is when I was born.

and the xxx's are from other people around the world using neo81, I started adding x's.

I go fishing for things in the ground and just like catching fish in the water you never know if or what you will actually get plus as time goes on and you learn more about it you have more chance of pulling up what you are after.

My nic name came about from my name Jean, but my friends used to call me jeannie. And i seem to spend alot of time wishing to find more gold, so that's how it was chosen. I was going to choose "golden rainbow" , because when i was a kid, my father used to tell me there was a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. And when i go out detecting and see a rainbow, i always find gold within 2 days of seeing it. I feel my father is watching over me. :) So would anyone like me to grant them a wish ;D ;D ;D

Post by: IRON MASK on February 22, 2012, 23:09
Well I have only been on the forums for a few years. Being a newbie I went and made a long user name and I figured that people would not want to type it. So when I decided to change it I could not get creative. I was on the Minelab Owners forum and the SE Pro was my first real detector that just happened be on the table in front of me. I looked and saw the “IRON MASK” Button and the rest is history. 
Cool thread I may add.

Post by: GemQ on February 23, 2012, 06:30
All,

Another member with the christian name of Guy, the GEM comes from a mixture of surname and given names and the Q comes form the old days when I used to DJ (similiar to MaxQ- INXS fame). With my other DJ mates we made up rapper names (very 80s) and mine was GEMQ MC303 comin actcha, the 303 comes from the time when I was a professional shooter in my younger days.
Title: Re: Tell us a little about your Nickname?
Post by: qujibo on February 23, 2012, 08:37
Qujibo  (pronounced KWIDGE-EE-BO) comes from the simpsons originally, although it was spelt differently.  Bart and Homer were playing scrabble and to get rid of all his letters, Bart made up the word Kwijebo (or something like that) His definition of the word, while looking at Homer, was - "A big, dumb, balding north American ape, with no chin and a short temper".  Anyway, a mate bet me that I wouldn't get it put on a number plate.  I had to change the spelling so it would fit.
After that, it kinda stuck as a nickname.  Also name a couple of businesses after it too.
I'm not really a Simpsons fan, just stupidly couldn't refuse the bet :)

Post by: Goodbeard on February 23, 2012, 14:32
Back when I joined the forum Alimo88 started a thread about my nickname, now is the time reveal its origin.

After a month long fishing trip to the far north of qld (back in the mid 90s) I returned with a beard of sorts. My brother thought it was so bad that he started calling me goodbeard.  The name unlike the beard stuck around and I use it for other stuff cause I can't be bothered dreaming up something else.

By the way if you see the other thread Alimo started then you may note jarhead was closest to the mark, just that that fella is a hell of a lot better looking than me ;)

Ummmmmm ......
I do a bit of gold detecting and when out in the bush camping, I have this habit of dropping a 5c piece in the hole after "I do my stuff" (if you get what I mean) and then fill it in.
At a certain depth it sounds just like a piece of gold to the unwary. Started after I'd had more than a few one night and when it was found the next night everyone killed themselves laughing at the unfortunate finder !

The Sodd has stuck, even the wife calls me that now.

Back in the day I came across the term parsec as a measure of distance while studying astronomy. I was also studying IT at the time, in particular the language C and programmers use the term parse for going through the code, so parseC covered both bases.

I previously (early '90's) used other nics for computer stuff, but changed most of them to parsec as no one else was using it at the time and having something unique was handy.

I have always owned bikes, they have been my daily transport since forever. Many years ago some scourge of the earth stole my helmet off my bike. This was a problem. No Helmet = No Bike = No Transport! As i had little income in those days i was devastated! A buddy said "here... borrow this helmet". It was a open-face red helmet that had been spray painted flat black and knocked around heaps so you could see the red. It also had no visor (borrow??? you REALLY want this back??? :o ) Partially consoled, I go to the back shed and find a old pair of motor-cross / aviation goggles. Relieved i am mobile for work again. At the time i was trainee at the dockyards. So here i am pootling to work, and my best buddy sees me pulling up and says... "Who do you think you are? the toecutta or something?" and that has stuck for nearly 30 years. and yer.. i still dig the original Mad Max <giggling>.

Pleased to meet you

I learnt to detect 4 years ago using a (Tesoro) Laser B1...(reportedly the best in its time for detecting in the UK back in the 90's).... it takes a while to understand what it's saying, but once you get to know it, it remains reliable, consistant and just "keeps going"...I like to think it's a bit like me  ;D

having built a pulse induction metal detector I found that the diodes that protect the operation amp from the induced pulse from the coil were vulnerable and would often die.  In the end I put 5 diodes each way in parallel and they stopped blowing up.  While they didn't smoke I have made a fair few circuits smoke in my time due shorting out components.  It's a horrible smell.

Sorry mines not very inventive either just my name last initial and year of birth. I use it for all forums etc.

My other nicknames aren't very inventive either given since school D.J. and Daz.

Use Daz a lot because it's easier to tap out get called D.J. a lot of the time.

I selected 'Yarragee' as it is a small community or farming area near where I lived in Moruya NSW on south coast. 'Yarragee' is said to be a aboriginal word for 'clear blue water'.  The Moruya River (salt water - clear and blue) runs through the back of Yarragee and the Kiora River (fresh water - tannin colour) upstream runs into the Moruya River and at Yarragee you tend to get a mix of the salt/fresh waters. (You wanted to know all that LOL).

Hi all
Mine has an interesting story as well : Drunk Brother.... You think you can guess? WRONG! :-)

so, back many  moons ago about  the year 2000 when i was in Uni and coutner strike got released we played and there was  a teenager who called me Granny for some reason.
At that point i decided to make a nick name Granny for all gaming, but one evening on my birthday some one tried to get me drunk, but failed (i am Russian who lives in NZ and doesnt Drink - how about braking stereotypes?) but the Whole evenign everyone was like "Lets get Granny Drunk" so i took the Official unique nick name Drunk Granny and from about that time all my accounts online were Drunk Granny till one day in 2003 one of my main Gaming Characters Got BUG and locked up... :-( so i had to create a new ingame account and named it Drunk Brother.
From That point (2003) all my online accounts are Drunk Brother.

And again, i do not drink :-)

Hi all, no I'm not a fan of Sesame Street. A bit of background is required here, I'm nearly 2m tall and played a lot of cricket in my younger years. At a social game one of my friends little girls came running up to talk to me. She stopped at my feet and kept leaning back to look at me until she fell flat on her back. Everyone cracked up because it was funny and she was laughing but then she said "He looks like Big Bird!" and that as they say is history. Regards.

Post by: The Catseye Cleaner on September 23, 2012, 17:18
Shhhhh! I have a little secret, a thing I cannot help but do, a fetish if you like. On cold dark and lonely nights, when the air is heavy with mist and my wife is on night duty, my compulsion becomes stronger my efforts to resist it. Sporting my trusty toilet brush and bottle of Spray & Wipe I slip on my mask and cape and steal silently into the night.

My mission; to avenge the tyrannical reflector replacement man for those oft forgotten but loyal servants of the travelling public, the catseye reflectors.

Prowling the highways and byroads of my home town, I descend upon those catseyes most vulnerable to replacement and restore their reflective capacity to its former brilliance, before fading quietly into the shadows never to be seen. I am their protector, their saviour; I am champion of their cause. I am.........



"The Catseye Cleaner"



Nawh, what a crock of sh!t. The truth is I'm a delivery driver. When people ask me what I do for a living (especially my wife's work colleagues), I used to say; "I'm a Practitioner of the Logistical Arts". Sounds heaps more impressive than delivery driver don't it? Having received more than my fair share bewildered looks, I decided to cut the answer down to, “I'm a Catseye Cleaner” in consideration of the large number of catseye reflectors I must run over every day. (I would assume that running them over keeps them clean) ergo, "The Catseye Cleaner". Or just Catseye to you guys.



Now, whenever I have to fill out a form requiring me to state my occupation, I use this job description. Particularly when I think they don't really need to know and are just gathering personal information surreptitiously. I bet I'm the only catseye cleaner in the world!

;)

Hello Members,

I chose my nick because of my most helpful find.

There was an arcticle posted in the Manly daily. Can you help us find our missing time capsule.
Mona vale public school could not find their time capsule. For some weird reason the Principle in 1975 hid it in secrecy.
So I called the school and said I'll give it a go. I was invited over on a Sunday. Given some clues. And I found it in a cavity in the sandstone wall entrance to the school. It was a pre forum find. So no award for me. And no reward from the school. My reward was the happy children who could now read the fantastic items hidden in the tar coated lead envelope time capsule.
A just in time for the schools centenery celebration.

My nickname came from a conversation I had with a guy in a detector shop in the states , I indicated to him that I was interested in buying a detector and went through a few models and equipment etc
After exchanging stories about potential sites we parted by him say " well sir I hope you find a lot " so I though it my be appropriate to use "Sirfinfalot" maybe an omen now to live up to the name.

69Spike

69 is my birth year.

I got the name "Spike" when I was in the Navy. Australia won a silver in the boxing at the LA Olympics. We lost on points to a Russian boxer. The Aussie was Graham "Spike" Cheney - from Lithgow NSW. Well the boys found out that he was my cousin (and Old Navy being Old Navy - and enjoying boxing as the boys do), branded me the next "Spike" Cheney. The name has stuck ever since!

For some reason I have always just stuck the two together for all my internet/email accounts. Very easy to remember, and links all my accounts together.

Benthic means on the bottom or under a body of water. Usually used to describe animals living on the bottom of the ocean. As metal detecting finds things under sand or water and I am a bit if a bottom dweller myself it just seemed rather appropriate.  ;D

Post by: Rwork on April 03, 2014, 18:05
A name nearly the same.


Kununurra comes from the English pronunciation of Gunanurang in the Miriwoong language with a general meaning of "Big Waters" having become the popular definition or "Big River"[5] Other accounts of the name of Kununurra state that it was the Miriwoong name for this part of the Ord River, which makes sense in that the Ord River runs for hundreds of kilometres coming from the south near Hall's Creek. It is likely that other parts of the Ord River were known by other Aboriginal language names, by the various tribal language group areas, over which the river traverses.

Guys at work used to call me philbo. I was told that it came from Bilbo baggins of the hobbit and lord of the rings. I am tall but my feet could be described as large and hairy so maybe that's why they used the name I don't know but I thought it would be an appropriate name for this forum.

1918 is a date that links me to my past and my heritage.  On the 18th of November 1918, Latvia finally proclaimed itself as a Republic, its own country run by its own people, after centuries of foreign oppression.

If you see someone detecting with a small apricot coloured pug, that would be me.
When I first started I wouldn't wear head phones so I could keep an eye on her, so when I heard the high tones(on the ATpro) she would pick up on my excitement and start digging as well.
Now that I wear them now I'm not much fun any more.

I used to go by the name of Ozyredeye around many forums, Litoria chloris is the Red eyed green tree frog.
 
I used to breed frogs for the pet market and with the redeyes I stamped out the illegal trade in SA many years back now when I became the 1st breeder to flood the market is SA and other states , It was never about the money side of things as it could have made me rich at the time i sold them just to cover costs (food , tanks etc etc) but the main aim was to stop the poaching from QLD/NSW and taking them back to SA where if you caught them and got them back into SA they were legally yours and that just got up me in a major way.

Yes I even got death threads for my little mates selling them for peanuts compared to the poachers that were selling them for $200 each  
I could go on and on but you get the gist of things

As a Senior Admin on an old BBS playing Games -  Text based strategy etc   Could take weeks for all the players to make a move in the right order.  Some would get a bit pissed off and if you have ever played these types of games, a week or 2 between moves can be frustrating LOL...     So as Senior Admin / Management  some one suggested rather than QAA651 I should be called AngerManagement.. 

Then in to PC gaming and HR (Work) and thus I just kept using it. 

Post the Movie and other TV Series - It is often confused with who I am...  

I am not Angry -  I am just a pissed off grumpy old man that has had a gut full of PC and the cotton wool culture of today  :o
