    dude i used to be a skiier, but now i love extreme snowboarding.
    you should try. it's a whole new ball game, no matter how good you are at skiing, if you take up snowboarding, you'll suck, and even the easy hills will be a challenge.
    i started snowboarding because i nolonger enjoyed skiing at crap places like "Mission Ridge", and it was too far to go to the rockies all the time.
    so now, i find amusement going off jumps even at the crappiest of places.:dude: :dude: :dude:
    not that i suck anymore or anything, coz i've been doing it 4 three years now!:dude: :dude:

    djgizmo, I can snowboard, but I'm a much better skier so I tend to do that more. No way can I double Black diamond or do moguls with a board, on skis though it's like dancing down the mountain. I don't ski in Sask as there is no real place worth the effort. It has been the bain of my exsistence to love skiing only to live in the prairies. How cruel and ironic is that?

    I will make at least 2 trips to Banff in the winter just to ski , so we make the most of it and go hard for the few days we are there. Seems I always plan a summer vacation that goes through Banff and the Rockies every year, and then every fall me and the boys go backcountry hiking/camping, so you see I should move to Calgary.

    My real name's Rowan :D
    But I hate that name so I changed it to Row :D

    So me and my mates were playing Quake III at a LanP, and what happens, I get my a$$ whipped, and someone calls me a llama.

    So I say, But I'm a l33t h4x0r, how can you call me a llama?

    And he says, then i'm calling you a l33t ll4m4 cos you SUCK at Quake III!

    The audacity :D :D

    Nismo are the motorsport division of Nissan I think, and do all the mods and tuneups for their top end sports cars.

    I first saw it on a Nissan Skyline, which is one of my fav cars anyway, and thought it sounded cool too :lol:

    My nickname came from a day in Science class which intrigued me and my dad signing up for a month free of AOL(man...you could rip AOL off if you knew how to get the phone operators to give you another "demo period"). Basically 18 has nothing to do with my age or anything to do with anything. Sometimes I use H18 but usually its Hydrogen18....

    Even I cant remember why I came up with this.

    I think I just wanted something different and no one else would have the same.

    Anyway its what I use when on the net.

    Shadowspawn: Hanse Shadowspawn.

    Anyone read Thieves World?

    None of the towns people knew where he came from..it was whispered that he had no parents. Dark clad, clinging to the shadows, he often passed by without being seen. An expert with knives, he killed without the victim knowing he was ever there.

    He came from the shadows and retreated to the shadows, so they named him Shadowspawn - spawned from the shadows.

    A fitting name for the internet.

    Fits my game playing style as well.:lol:

    In the days of the original Quake mod Team Fortress, a buddy of mine sent out an email trying to get me and some other friends to join a clan. He said that since we were all "deviates" any way, we might as well be in a clan together. I corrected him and said he of course meant deviants, but then I also took the name for online playing. Been Deviate ever since. Not to mention I'm a bit of an individual....I had a philosophy professor call me an iconoclast once.....so the name kinda stuck.

    OK if anyone is still reading this thread or can be bothered to read all 3 pages (ok i'm sad, no i'm bored).

    If you don't know what GiGo means then your prety thick.
    GiGo = Garbage In Garbage Out

    I also go as GiG for 3 letter high scores etc...

    I came across it years ago and never really used the net much until about 3 years and I started using it. Garbage Out descibes me a lot so thats how mine came about.

    Relix I love your stories, you should publish!

    I've gone by so many names.

    The first one I can remember is Trax, then Taran, then DeadPool, then AcidBurn, then NineOneOne, then WhineOneOne, then Sept. 11th happened and people accused me of making fun of it. So I was ****ed at this group of yuppies down the hall from me and I was playing some CS.

    I changed my name to Repress the Yuppies and my friend started laughing and said that I always wanted to fight. So I changed my name to Repress. Guess thats kind of how I feel.
