Dwarf

Windows 8.1 Pro RTM x64
 
 

Mine stems back around 25 years ago whilst I was at college (a quarter of a century - that make me feel old!) We had a Dungeons and Dragons club (I've forgotten how to play now), and we had to draw names for our characters out of the proverbial hat. The name I drew was Dwarf, and I've used it ever since. Just as well that I didn't draw out Fairy!

I use MR GRiM on nearly all Sites and for my game Tags now, it started with COD4 and now I use it everywhere or slight variations if someone else has already pinched it, my older user name was just my initials and the 3 first letters of my last name being God (Goddard).

Mine are similar, depending on the site. I was born in 1969 so you can guess how the username is made up.

I just use my name I could never think of anything when it came to registering so thought well I've had this one for long enough so why not stick with it, at least I don't forget it

Well I'm a goldsmith and the url of my website is garysgold.com. So that's where it comes from. I use the same one everywhere as I got tired of having to look up one for a site I haven't been to in a bit.

Ex_Brit

Win 7 Ult SP1/Win 10 Pro (all x64)
 
 

I use Ex_Brit for many websites and it means exactly what it says. I was born in the UK and live in Canada. I keep both passports though - so in a sense, I'm not an ex brit at all.

I have IE9 running in Win7 Ultimate. As it is a private computer I always check "Remember Me" when I log into forums etc. (including this one). But it keeps on forgetting and I often have to log in manually - at my age I can't instantly remember login details;) Is this a common issue,...
