What does your username mean? Why did yo pick it?

Just curious. Some of the usernames here are obvious, but some are a bit more cryptic (at least to me).

My username is just my name. When I was signing up for the site, I was like, "...well, what else would I go by? I'll just use my name."

Mine's a nickname I picked up in "A" school. I got an idea for a new one the other day. I was wearing a tshirt from the Y-Not Saloon and looked in the mirror: Tony Noolas.

I have a lot of shady dealings with folks of questionable character, thus the desire to remain anonymous.

And the name just fit.

I chose my first name. The #'s were purely random and "tech" was reference to the automotive field.

"martureo" is really μαρτυρέω, it's Koine Greek (although I'm sure the word exists in modern Greek).

It means "I testify" and was specifically chosen from Romans 10:2.

It's my handle on pretty much every forum.

It was really nifty and edgy, but it earned some real harsh scrutiny at first. Funny how some take personal offense at the ID chosen by others. Fear perhaps. Get over it, and lets party on

I say it was great. Look at the google definition example they use:

"sexually transmitted diseases can be insidious and sometimes without symptoms"

So I guess you're like the clap. Nothing was wrong for a long time till I took that leak and felt the razor blades.

And a poor typist.

MBeige is for Manila (or Manilla) Beige, color code of my 300D. "M" and "B" are capitalized to denote Mercedes-Benz.

I got my user name from a nickname I got in the air force (her majesty's royal that is)



That rubber bugger has the same surname!
