well, i was reading don quixote one day, and there was the tale of the Phoenix Knight. well, i thought that was cool and started using Phoenix Night as my handle. but that was too big to fit in a lot of video game handle, so it got shortened to FenixNite, which got shortened to ElFenix.

Actually my real universal nick is UrbanTech but it was taken so I had to settle for urbantechie. BTW, UrbanTech is our company production name when we make skate videos :)

It became my universal nick after I tried to sign on to Mplayer as LardA$$ and Mplayer wouldnt take it because of the A$$.
So MrChicken became my universal online nick. LardA$$ is still what I use for single player and local lan games.

Oh yeah, it comes from the "Ghost and MrChicken movie". no reason other than it seemed cool to play quake and see things like "MrChicken gibs SUPERKILLER".

I was at band camp once and and and this girl with a flute asked what my name was and and and I said Nic... yea Nic Colt.

I use it when playing Q3, and then I figured out that since I never ever would be able to use my name or nick anywhere since it probably was taken I started to use this nick instead.

AoD ;)

<< I searched and looked through a dozen threads like this in the last year, found dennilfloss appealing, killed him and took his place. >>



Two things here you imposter, your kidding about there have been threads like this before right? and about the Old Dennil, it was slow and painful right? ;)

His last words were: &quot;This really sucks!&quot;

The late dennilfloss was, of course, speaking to me in the above sentence. Easy come, easy go. :D

Dennil 2, being an android, is more durable, but still fully functional.

I am a man &amp; I occasionally drink some Budweiser, you but them together &amp; you get BUDMAN.

I know it's not much of a nick but i lack imagination sometimes.

wangel - Short for White Angel

Most 'user names' will not allow for a space, so you combine to get wangel.

This was my CD handle many many many years ago. Sort of stuck.
