In high school, I knew I needed to come up with "handle" for my blossoming online presence. There was no Internet in 1979, but we had BBS's, and i had access to the county school system Honeywell 6600 mainframe, the local university's Cyber mainframe, and Compuserve! So one day at school while sitting in my computer class I started writing down different names.. It had to look and sound cool. Originally I used *ZANGIN*, but have since lost the astricks because many sites won't let you use them as part of a nickname.

It was a made up word that sounded cool to me.. Pronounced like "hang in" but with a Z, as opposed to "Zan Jin".
It just stuck with me and I've used it ever since!

I came up with my nick because I like butterflies and I was attempting to "be at peace" as I was incredibly frustrated attempting to create a nick which did not contain numbers on a different site-I have enough trouble remembering my own name much less a user name that has random numbers attached. Obviously butterflies are extremely popular and so of course the site added those lovely random numbers so I flipped it to flutterybys which had no numbers (Hallelulah!!!!) As a bonus I thought it would be easy for people to get and spell, etc. Ya not so much but it does remind me to be more zen and less :blink: :angry: :wacko: :tazz: :bashhead: :killcomp: :smashcomp:

totally feelin ya love my PC hate my PC. I have to say I find it ironic that this site has a welcome area and this really positive vibe and yet i'm guessing many people who search out a site like this are feeling a bit :help: :tazz: i'm just hoping when all is said and done I feel more :cheers: :notworthy: :rockon: have a great day.

Part of the my regard for the great blues singer Muddy Waters, and part of the english translation of a Cree name for the village I live in, by a large inland lake it's named after.

As an introduction I'm a longtime computer user and vintage collector. I'm on the trailing edge of computers of course, and still learning about the XP desktop and Pavillion computers I got last year. I know older computers from CPMs, Atari,TRS, Commodores,Apples,and even Next's, and MSPCs up to Win 98, but I've fallen behind newer developments, as I pass my 3/4 century timeline. Unfortunately a careless moment allowed me to be infected by a particularly viscious virus, which is why I am here.

bit of a boring one here.
We owned a fish and chip shop and the locals when referring to me used to say "that chippy chap"
At the time it totally described me so it stuck. :blush:

When I adopted my cat he came with the name of Smoogers (soft "g") and I always add Mr or Miss to my pets' names. Hence Mr Smoogers or mrsmoogers.
