Life of Brian wrote:My first name is Brian, and there is a Monty Python movie called "Life of Brian". Simple enough. Since portablizing has become my hobby/obsession, it seemed pretty appropriate.

However, many of you young 'uns don't realize that my current username isn't the one I joined the forums with. My original name was joedog86, which was a username that I came up with for my very first email account back in '98. I had a dog named Joe, and I was born in '86 - I know, not very creative. However, Joe died a while back and I requested the name to be changed. I've ceased using that name for anything new I sign up for. I haven't changed it for my Instructables or YouTube accounts because I'd lose content that I posted.

I always did wonder why your name is joedog86 everywhere else.


Now about my name. In real life, I am a pretty cazy person. So "mad" seemed fitting. Then, since I was joining a hacking/modding site, I decided to put "themadhacker" as my username. I like the name, and I think it sounds pretty nice.
And no, my name has no relation whatsoever to Alice's Wonderland.
rest in peace, Ronnie James Dio! \m/

Well, about a day after I created my account, I realized that my name sounded a lot like the mad hatter's.

Did you know it is also the name of an RPG?
I'd heard that it was, but I don't do much on-line gaming. I think I checked it out once and signed up for an account, but it didn't really interest me.
You know whats really ironic about that? They have a monster on that game called Shock Slayer. :lol:

Every time I read your name I read it queerkduhtix. Is that how you pronounce it?

ShockSlayer :lol: It resembles you pretty well.
