Why did you choose that particular username, and what does it mean?
I see a lot of interesting usernames but obviously can't ask everyone personally...

(I do a lot of Visual Basic programming, thus... VBboy. Unemployed VBboy)

Why do I ask? Oh, I just like to.. know.. things :). So do others here, I bet!

Actaeon is a character in a greek mythology. A prince of a sort went hunting, found some Goddess of a sort bathing, the goddess casted a spell on him, and turned him into a Goat-like creature. Then his own hunting dogs killed him.

I get high pretty easily. So when I smoked with normal people, I would get prett spaced out. Spaced would be too normal.. had to add the 3 to make it seem more different.

Sure, Y stands for first letter of my dad name. Len is my last name. Yes this short. 13 is the date when my parents came to USA, long time ago.

One day I was very pissed off because of how shitty Quake III was running on my dialup connection so I named myself "The Unhappy Camper". And proceeded to camp in a very unhappy way. The name stuck as I got more and more sick of dialup. It's no longer appropriate seeing as I no longer have dialup and I'm very happy with my 1.2 Mbps downloads. ;)

My first ISP was AOL.

I wanted Brutuskendall (Brutus= My dogs name, Kendall my last name)

I couldn't get it all in, so Brutuskend was born.

Future Crew was the sh|t back in the day. "Final Reality" was incredibly impressive. Did you know that they moved on and formed Mad Onion, the company that created 3dMark?

I had a dog. Named Bear. Called it Barracuda. Got the internet. Used Barracuda. Decided it wasn't original enough. Dropped the Barra. Realized Cuda was sometimes taken (even though Ive had mine since I was 13... 5 years ago.) Added 1337. 1337- Leet- Elite- I played UO. Joined AT. Had Cuda1337, forgot my password. Re-registred with Cuda1447. Never changed it back to 1337

I origionally signed up as datalink, but then went to Germany for 2 months and forgot my password. So I added a 7 to the end of it to make it datalink7.

As for where datalink comes from... it comes from the game Alpha Centauri. The information was kept in the "datalinks". I really liked some of the quotes in the game, and thought the name would be kind of cool and unique.
