    Comes from “wishing for the sun” of course, which is a B-side from the Feeder single High (disc 1).

    It comes from the combination of Spyro (obviously) which is also my name in greek (Spiros) and the Dark Souls Pyromancer class, so Spyromancer.

    Avatar is more obvious so nothing to say here

    I thought the name was funny at the time, was really just a throwaway but it fits me. Sounded better than Major_Tom or something. It holds relevance.

    Scooby Doo Where Are You & The Scooby Doo Show were my first favorite cartoons lol. Plus the inside joke was shaggy and scoob were always stoned and paranoid with the munchies. Think the avatar was actually used as a meme as well.

    I like the font - is it a custom made font through GIMP or does it have a font file that can be linked to?

    Name from many different reasons, Incorruptable in the sense I can’t be bought off, won’t be forced to do anything that compromises my ethics, but also as I am big into computers/consoles and the exploitation of them, Incorruptable as in ensuring my data is always safe!!
    (BTW, I know the spelling is wrong, that was intentional)

    Avatar is a photo from a wall of an all night lawless rave I used to frequent around 1994 called the Asylum, man I was caught in that mouse’s gaze a few times!!!!

    My mom's cat died on september, my brother called him sometimes "El gris", "the gray one", but his real name was Tito. Even though, he wasn't my cat, I still miss him. Now my cat is the only cat in the family.

    Nemesis is my hero since I was a kid, even more than Gabe Logan, Solid Snake or Sam Fisher. And I chose him now because we are in the Nemmie spree lol. Now are the sweet times :cool2:

    I don't remember what the "Wk" comes from, other than it was a quick screen name I always used for everything back in the day. In games and such. I think it originally meant something for real.
    1207 was from some book about the somewhat new thing called internet that I read as a kid. Like one of those that came along with the computer. I don't know why it said 1207 somewhere in it, but it did.
    So obviously I have less of an idea why I still use this nick from time to time.

    As long as I can remember I've been called pink so to be incognito I added a 1 to it.

    My avatar is the crimson ghost. He is from a 40's show called "The Crimson Ghost" that was re-released again in the 50's & 60's. The plot of the show is "A mysterious villain, the eponymous Crimson Ghost, is determined to steal a counter atomic device known as Cyclotrode X, which can short out any electrical device.".
