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.

I've been called 'stratty' by schoolmates and workmates, short for Stratford. Now I'm past 50, I decided to add 'old'.

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

Don't ya just love newbies who resurrect old threads?

Back in the dark ages, the dawn of the internet if you will, with it's modems and it's 33k connections I used to be a pretty heavy online gamer, mostly first person shooters, a scene from a movie stuck in my mind and I used Sneaky B@stard for years but these days I abbreviate it to Sneaky.

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
