    Negative said I shouldn't post this because it would only prove what an airhead I am. Anyway, he posted that story several years ago...shortly before we met - I thought it was true. :s

    My nic? *yawn* needs to be changed. The "story" behind it is that I like math and I'm a girl. Mystery solved. To the powers that be...please change my name to anything else - sans the "girl".

    Yeah... d0pp came about cause d0ppy got banned (*******s.)


    D0ppy came about because it is a shortened version of d0pp139an93r, and I believe it was referred to as "cute" by some chick in IRC (can't remember who)....


    As far as where d0pp139an93r came from... I skiddied doppelganger.... the origin of the nick goes back years... I just can't remember where exactly... very drunk times.

    Mine comes from the fact that murchu is Murphy in irish but some oone beat me to it on paddynet. So then i modified it to be muracu which when deconstructed in french becomes roughly mur a cu = wall to butt. Or roughly Ass to the wall .

    Mine came from highschool one day. I tended to drive a weeee bit faster in those days and didn't adjust my driving to match road conditions properly. One day I was driving by my school at a slightly-higher-than-safe speed and hit a patch of black ice with 3 passengers in the car. The car ended up skidding and spinning down the road right past the school on lunch at around 100 km/h.

    Everyone says when they looked at my car careening down the road it "streaked" like an airplane. I really dunno how that description came about, but somehow it did. Everyone in the car was just "shrieking" since they all thought we were going to have a catastrophic accident (luckily not).

    So the description of the day was "streakin' and shriekin'", and from that day forward, people called me Streak. I figured if a name was forced on me, I should at least be able to choose how to spell it. I took the spelling from both words and came up with "Striek", just to make it different.

    CXGJarrod = CXG are the initials of the company I work for and Jarrod is my name. Easy enough.

    my friends and I were creating a security consulting service a few years ago. We named ourselves Level 4 Security (no I have no idea why). I needed a nick here, all the ones I have used in the past didn't seem acceptable at the time, so I just used lv4.

    Yeah I know it is lame

    Paranoia

    Many years later, I realized that Noia in a certain brazillian/spanish accent means girl....which explains all the random brazillian/spanish speakers who keep adding me on MSN!

    Also figured out that Noia is the name of a certain KDE icon theme, which has caused alot of heat because people think i am trying to rip it off or something.

    My nick stems from Paranoia as stated above because I am, as some of you might have guessed, paranoid, although, it has died down a bit in the past few years, gone from a paranoid disposition to I-dont-give-a-rats-arse,-Physical-violence-saves-all :P

    I quite like my nick coz its short and sweet and not a common nick, although i have noticed people have started ripping it off in other places of the net, oh well.

    Tangent: The whole AO persona I have here is acctualy quite old and hold a bit of sentimental value, ie; the Avatar I have now, and use all over the net, was provided to me by P2P-apocalypse waaaaay back in the day. It stuck. I even have a button with the icon on it
