blame hotmail for my user name.

 

long, long, loooong ago when I first started using the internet I decided to get a free email account (and at that time it was hotmail first, daylight second)

 

so, in all naivety, I tried to just use my first name and to my surprise,  someone was already using that for a hotmail account Surprised

 

ditto my first name + first letter of my last name Cry

 

now, hotmail was suggesting using a mixture of my name + numbers, but that didn’t feel like me …..

 

so, i got to lateral thinking, last name starts with “Y”, “Y” is pronounced the same as “why”, so I tried that.

 

thus grantwhy began Smile

 

(side note: while I don’t go to a lot of forums/places, I’ve been able to use the same username everwhere.  It’s so much easier to not have to remember who I am[username] on the forums I go to – there mustn’t be a lot of grantwhy’s around Wink)

as a CareBear Anarchist I believe in the destruction and overthrow of the perils of society through random and senseless acts of consideration and kindness

Hey Grantwhy:

When you wrote “so, i got to lateral thinking….” I had to think (non-laterallyWink     for a moment what you meant…

from wikipedia: Lateral thinking is about reasoning that is not immediately obvious and about ideas that may not be obtainable by using only traditional step-by-step logic.

…………….always learnin’ sumthin’ new every day.

I learned some thing too.

I call it, thinking outside the box.

As to my user name and how it came about, because I wear it well. Wink

Pwn + banana = Pwnana.  Theres no reason I chose banana.  It could very well have been Pwncado or Pwnapple.

My name in the Gawkersphere (Lifehacker, iPhonemodo) is Pwnguins.  It’s a misspelling of Penguins from when I went to make a throwaway account for some random site.  I liked it so much I’m Pwnguins now.

Oh, the site that was :(

I did that random name thing on another forum. Didn’t really care that it sounded stupid, I was only going to post on that forum a couple times. Or so I thought.

Now I’ve been a member on that forum for almost 5 years and have over 1,000 posts (a small number for most, but not for me), and I’m stuck with that name.  Made me start thinking more about names when I sign up on sites now. Laugh

A lot of forums let you change your name-for instance, this one and Gawker.

I thought maybe you were from that show on History channel:

“Pawn Stars”

The banana part would be good for wheezer’s smoking chimp!! Wink

The forum I’m referring to is full of “old farts.” A bunch of which are ever older than I am, by a lot.

I’m affraid I’d confuse the guys if I changed now. Besides, they shorten my name when addressing me so that it doens’t sound as bad. Laugh
