    I got my name from my napster username from way back in the day. (1999) My napster account/IP was banned due to the whole metallica controversy. I chose yellowsnow because I was really into snowboarding at the time (the snow part) and I was 18 and had a different sense of humor at the time (the toilet humor reference part) Finally, 17 is my favorite number so that's where that comes from. Anyway, now whenever I need a username for any online account purposes, I use yellowsnow17 as kind of a tribute to my original napster account. RIP dude.

    btw, my real name is Dan...

    My name came from an episode of the cartoon show Space Ghost: Coast to Coast. Aw... What episode was it? It was all in black and white. Buzz Aldrin was the guest that Space Ghost accused of being "Confusitron". Rammstein played as the theme song. One of my favorites.

    Anyway, I liked the name. It also fits me. I tend to confuse things, since I am an idiot, and I like things that are nonsensical (which tend to confuse people). I have no idea how I have gotten anywhere in life...

    EDIT: I have now discovered that I have already posted in this thread... I guess this explains my name more, then.

    Back in 9th grade, a couple of asians called me Chamander after the Pokemon series. By the end of 10th grade, EVERYONE in the whole school knew me by chamander, even the seniors and the teachers. I was cool back then so I guess that was when Chamander2kool was made. lol

    John Cena is just a wrestler from WWE Smackdown lol

    Iam the buddha of the bootup

    eh, well not really... But I do own bootupbuddha.com. Thought at the time that it would be a great domain name so I bought it and have never really used (yet).

    :idea: We should start a new thread called: Domain Names we registered and never ever, ever used" :idea:

    Anyways, I have gone by a few handles in my time, 'Ghost' or 'Ghost in the PC' is the one that I have used for years but it’s a really popular name so I dropped it. I used BootupBuddha here just in case I actually finish my site and maybe draw some traffic to it. It is in production but is still weeks away. It’s a windoze tweak site stuff that people on bit-tech would already know about. It’s designed for the ma and pop types that would be willing to pay for tech support.

    Back in 98 I was making a secondary screen name in AOL and PsychoBoy was taken, I had seen someone use I3 as B in another SN so I did that. At the time I was accused of being an extreme nerd for having 5 email accounts with PsychoI3oy@*.com (yahoo, hotmail before it sucked, excite, and a couple others that i've forgotten); I wonder what they'd think of me now for having had at least a dozen PsychoI3oy@ email addresses?

    this was, of course, looong before the era of 1337 533|< ('leet speek') that we now endure.

    as for the actual etymology of my nick, I dunno, always been weird, and earned the real life nickname of 'psycho' from my classmates in high school, and it's stuck ever since.

    Inmate because I feel like life/society is often a prison for our minds.

    909 = ()( holding down shift. 909 is also 91 ways from 1000. 303x3 = 909.

    Actually, 909 is meaningless to me - if I recall, Inmate by itself was taken and I was too lazy to think of anything clever at the time.

    there's a fart on my ear. lots of people think fart is a verb, but in my username it's a noun. it's also an excuse to slap people. "WATCH OUT! THERE'S A FART ON YOUR EAR!"

    Well, a friend nick-named me ChaChi, cause for some reason he thinks I look like Scott Bao (sp?) from Happy Days. Well, thinking that someone would call me chichi ( slang for boob), I came up with Guido. (Sticking with the Italian theme.)
