    I got my nickname "Maddog" from my best friend iback in high school. I was a small scrawny kid at the time, so I was always having to defend myself from the bullies. What I lack in size and strength, I more than made up for in sharp wit sarcasim and cocky attitude. :D

    In college when I first got on the Internet ten years ago, yes the "super highway" fad, I used Maddog but then so was everyone else in the chat rooms. So I added the "Mr." part to make it more distinglished, not to mention to try to command some respect as well. :eek:

    Well living up to my nick i've gotten into a lot of flame battles (on the defensive, of course) in both newsgroups and chat rooms. But now I'm older I don't feel the need to get into that sort of stuff anymore, though my sarcastic nature still remains intact. :rolleyes:

    And to this day this is the nick I've used for Team Fortress and the Unreal games... ;)

    I got my name from a character in the Kingdom Hearts game. I thought that the character Sora was kick ass so ive been using it on most forums i go to. I think you clever people can figure out why theres a UT at the end. And now you know.

    Roofles...

    Truffles...

    I'm not as big into chocolate as I am into fungus, so when I hear truffles, I think of the mushroom.

    LOL :lol: YO JOE!!!



    Here's a little trivia question for Scum.

    What movie featured Scumgrief (Deep Dub Trauma Mix), which was also their first time on a movie soundtrack. NO CHEATING WITH INTARWEB SEARCH!

    Lei Hng Wei is my Chinese name spelled with a Japanese scheme to form 3x3x3.

    Lei (lay) family name Lee in Japanese kinda means plum
    Hng (hoong) male; hero; great leader; superiority; excellence
    Wei (way) great; famous; remarkable; excellent

    Hng Wei imposing; grand; magnificent

    So I'm like the magnificent plum. :lol:

    After seeing the first "Lord of the Rings" movies I read the book and knew I had to pick up a screen name from it. I figured all the main character names would be used by a ton of people. While reading through the Appendices I came upon "Sindarin", which is actually an Elven dialect. Liked the way it sounded so I stuck with that.

    My in-game name is EQUINOX. This is the day when every point on the earth will have 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of darkness. I thought it was a cool name, because the equinox could be interpreted as the fragile balance between good and evil. Unfortunately this name wasn't available as forum name anymore.

    So I tried my nickname Bono, which is a short form of my last name (and has nothing to do with the singer of the band U2)... and obviously it worked :D

    In seventh grade I drew a penguin. Named Bobo. The full name was "Bobo The Schytzophrenic Penguin". :p My friends and I were going to make a flash series about him, but we're lazy.

    Yeah, I'm willing to bet money on it. You tell me how much, and I'll prove you wrong and expect payment. :)

    I created my name about 14 years ago. The first character to hold the name TyeFang was a D&D thief-assassin. I have been tempted occasionally to change it over the years but have stuck with it because its unique, and i have always liked the way it sounds.

    ...and i can always hope old friends from past games may see my name someday and say hi. :)

    ALthough I'd like to smack this reviewer for saying this:



    ...and it's on this album.
    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/t...102-1188175-2742529?v=glance&s=music&n=507846

    I demand free passage w/ flag on fragBU for the next month as payment. :lol: !!!

    You were close! Their first soundtrack was "Hideaway" with Jeff Goldblum which was released like 2 months before Johnny Mnemonic :) (and was a much better movie!) :)

    Dude, I went and ripped the Intro from Test Drive 5, which has Pitchshifter playing "Genius." Trust me, I've got you here.

    If I have to upload the video to my site to prove you wrong, I will. :p

    The only video of Fear Factory on Test Drive 5 is "Replica." Perhaps they did more songs for in-game, but Pitchshifter did the Intro, believe me.
