    Why did you choose your username?
    Let's see everyone explain their username...

    Back in '95 I was introduced to the internet and subsequently Perch32 (a chatting forum). I needed a username and being a big Weezer fan at the time, I chose my favorite song "Surfwax America" and tacked on the last 2 digits of the year...

    Favorite Song + Year = Surfwax95

    I've used it for everything ever since...

    You?
    I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

    I was on the M-F honor roll for October, 2006.

    Mine is actually not that relevant anymore. I was a big dave matthews fan for a while and three of my favorite songs with Tripping Billies, Monkey man and #41.

    Haven't listened to them much in the past few years but I don't change usernames very often

    In high school I got real big into hardcore punk and punk in general, I also was in the band playing tuba (still play tuba today). So I put two and two together and you'e got PunkRockTuba. Ive tried other usernames, but none of them work like this one.

    I've always been a huge fan of punk music since I was a kid (now 21).. And since I'm a huge geek, as most say, I formed "punkr0x0r," meaning "punk-rocker" using leet speak, kinda showing my two favorite things: Punk/Ska music and technology.

    I was signing up for yahoo email in 1997 and I had been working as a truck driver in the summer to make money for college. I used my first name and the number of the truck that I had been driving all summer. I've been using it since. Still have the yahoo email account too, though I rarely use it.

    MacBook Pro Retina 13" • iPhone 6 • iPad Air • and many iPods
    I joined the Usenix mailing list in '89 (I know, dating myself) and I needed a username. There was a carabiner sitting on my desk at the time so I typed that in (misspelling it in the process) and stuck the number 23 at the end.

    The rest, as they say, is history. :-)

    (The Felix avatar came around the same time-- I've always been a fan of that cat.)
