Windows 7: Where did you username come from?

Lady Fitzgerald was my stage name back when I worked Renaissance Festivals. I portrayed a brash, disenfranchised Irish noblewoman. Even now, more people know me as Lady Fitzgerald than as Jeannie.

As a side note, when I first got on Qlink it was with a Commodore VIC 20......

I remember Q-link (I used a Commodore 64C back then). One reason I will have nothing to do with AOHell is, when they bought Q-link, they abandoned it and, without any maintenance, if quickly became unusable and I had no choice but to quit it. AOHell bought up a lot of the smaller BBBs around then and deliberately abandoned them.

Indianatone...They called me Tone for short from Tony or Anthony and I moved from England where I was called Big Tone as I was bigger (6ft tall) than Little Tone (Tony 5ft 5) and I moved to Indiana from Northern Cambridgeshire. England. The ATV badge is a long gone TV station in England that we used to get when we lived in Nottingham and Banbury but lost when we moved to Huntingdon. I put up a huge aerial and picked up an entertainment quality signal in the towns I lived in till I moved to Peterborough where once again I received ATV now Central TV with a superb signal. I left England before all the digital nonsense and ITV restructuring occurred.

We have digital TV here. Analogue went away mostly in 2010. HD signals and SD signals all in 1 and 0.....Some low power relays, religious stations still broadcast in analog along with some low power school and college stations.
I use Windows 7 to record the Big Bang Theory and other stuff in HD.

Do I really have to describe where I got my handle?

Actually, my career was all computers, business management and consulting. Antique and Classic cars was a hobby ever since I could lift a wrench but my career allowed me to "tinker" with cars. Since then, I've turned my hobby into a small business that's keeps me busy. I restore and/or build cars now. The current project is replicating a rare 1921 Mercury Speedster body. I'll be making three for a customer but I may make one for myself too.

See my username when log off
Hi, I'm the only user/account on my PC so I don't need any extra security in Windows (to speed up the loading process). Today I did a new installation of Windows 7 and I miss something from my old setup: In old setup, whenever I log off Windows, I was seeing my picture & username and all I do...

What does your USERNAME mean???
As I read through the threads and posts I am so intrigued by our posters' Usernames! Most of them are so interesting, funny, and clever, but some are downright puzzling! Would love to know how everyone came to use their own Username. Mine is pretty obvious --- I'm the queen of imperfection! :p...
