Grit is a name I use often as a label. One of my pursuits is trying to be a professional stats-based cyberpunter (not a mug one). Winning at horse racing is notoriously a hard game and it takes "grit" to persist to the point of moderate success. Another "Grit" is on this forum apparently, so I am Grit1. I use my home puter a lot, am moderately informed and have a bit of geek in me, but lack confidence with very technical aspects, particularly with network issues, and thought somewhat belatedly to link up with some good geeks who enjoy exhibiting their skills in helping the less fortunately endowed.

I actually got my nick from a misspell of my original name. When I started playing AOE2 With a friend of mine I misspelled my name and didn't notice it until I was in the game.
Then it kind of stuck.
Where are the drinks?
Oh wait here they are....

So I'm powered by Caffeine, or Caffeine_Powered
I used an underscore because spaces are immoral
and I spelled Caffeine wrong because grammar is the devil.
No but seriously I was convinced I had spelled it right for awhile until I checked and it wasn't :/

But, as chance would have it, that nick was already taken.. what to do? what to do??
I looked through my greek mythology books for a good alternative, and ended up with Cassiopeia, except I spelled it Kassiopeja (which is the Swedish spelling of the name). This way I could still be refered to as Cassie (which has NO reference whatsoever to my real name of course... ) so I thought that was neat even though Cassiopeia is not the nicest character in greek mythology exactly. Cassiopeia put her daughter Andromeda out to be eaten by some monster and then Jason showed up and rescued the young lady in distress. Later the gods punished Cassiopeia by placing her upside down on a chair in the heavens, which gives the star constallation Cassiopeia (shaped like a slightly crooked W and not too hard to find in the sky on the northern hemisphere).
In this chat everyone asked me about my nick, why it was spelled wrong ( ) or where I got it from. I then added a byline to my nick that displayed in the chatroom saying SwedishStarlady. And people started calling me starlady instead.. or sometimes star... oh well. It's still my most used nick for every purpose including the e-mail addie I use on my CV when applying for jobs.
Long story from the Swedish newbie who really just registred to get som help with that blasted virtumundo-crap, but got caught up in all your stories instead..
oh yeah.. and now there's one more in that busy corner... Any meat left for me?

Well, my name is Paul and I'm an Old Fart. I have used PaulOF since the days of BITNET RELAY, when I was less old but still qualified by temperament , I think, to append the OF. (If you remember RELAY then you too are qualified for the OF suffix I suspect.)

My nick, yes. My nick comes from my other forum, RHJunior Webcomics, one of the female characters in the comic Tales of the Questor, Kestral, a artificer and Raconnan, friend of Quentyn, the protagonist. Previously, my nick was Artifactor, but I soon became known as Kestral because that is the nick I used primarily on the IRC chat.
