The Howling Wolves

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

The Howling Wolves started 47 years ago when I first met my wife.
Her name tag said Wolf mine was Wolfe... so being suave and debonair I introduced my self ..
Hi Wolf I am a Wolfe to! She should have turned and run away but here we are 47 years later and still Howling as all Wolves do.
All she had to do was add an e to her last name and put up with me. Love must be blind!

And no we are not cousins! hehehe

Layback Bear

Windows 7 Pro. 64/SP-1

My Avatar says it all.
I took that picture at the zoo in Cleveland.
Very hot day and the polar bear was laid back in the water watching all the people watching him.
Me and 4 other iron workers (Iron Worker Local 17) made the bear cages, rocks, and mote ect. that the bears lived in. I was there to see if the bears liked the work we had done and the free pass was nice also.
The concrete was sprayed on by some men from Disney Land.

I also ate my lunch there with Ernie every day the time we were there building this thing.
I had to start bring a larger lunch because Ernie seemed to grow fond of my lunch. Ernie didn't like mustard.
Ernie was some sort of African antelope that to me looked like a Ernie.

I had to choose between Ernie the antelope or Layback the Bear.

Win7 Pro 32bit

Back in 2005, I joined my first forum ( and really had no clue as to what was going on, I was that much of a noob. So I figured I may as well puff up my own abilities being the family chef. It wasn't until a few years later that I found out it was the business name of a guy in the UK who cleans appliances. Me, I just dirty them.

A Guy

Microsoft Community Contributor Award Recipient

Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP1

I'm sure we had a thread here already, as I have told this story before. I was an Admin on a forum, I answered a question by a poster, a problem he had been trying to fix for months. He replied back "You are a god!". I replied,"No, I am just a guy". Started using A Guy on new forums after that. Made the mistake of "signing" every post, have typed A Guy ad nauseum, lol. Glad I didn't pick Engelbert Humperdink

A Guy (see!)

P.S. It happened here too

It's funny though. As soon as you know a person's real name you tend to call them by that from then on.

The exception to that rule for me is ganjiry, even when I'm talking to him on TS I still call him ganj instead of Ryan. It's just loads easier!

Windows 10 Home 64-Bit

Mine comes from my initials (Aritra) and 2116 comes from my dad's official number or something which he uses to identify himself where he works. It is actually 21115 but I thought I'd have a smaller ID and something similar to Dad's so I kind of copied it and modified it and that is how you get 2116.

Windows 7 Pro x 2/Windows 10 Home/10 Pro//Windows 10 Insider Preview ?

My username IownAmoneyPit relates to any computer I own having paid top dollar originally, then 6 months later on sale for 1/3 the price topped off with hardware upgrades 1 to 2 years later worth at least 1/2 the original cost.

Mine is really simple, Devlin is my second name, i always get called Devlin from all friends, Don't know why i've always came to the conclusion it sounds better than "Michael" and "1967" is the year Celtic Fc (I'm a massive fan) won the European Cup (Champions League before it was called "Champions League) and we were also the first team in Britain to do so!

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...

When I use Windows Explorer to go to C:\Username\Favorites\Subdirectory1\Subdirectory2, I see different content than when I go to C:\Users\U Username\Favorites\Subdirectory1\Subdirectory2. When I open Favorites from within Internet Explorer 9, I see the content of the second case...
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...
