Firstly, I apologise if this has been done recently enough to be relevant. If it has, nuke the thread. How did you arrive at your Bit-Tech forum name? Mine is mundane: during my first week at uni many years ago I neglected to pack anything other than casual clothes. What I had failed to do was read the hall of residence welcome paperwork telling me that there was a formal dinner on about the third night. Being a student I couldn't afford to buy a suit/dinner jacket so I went on the scrounge in my corridor. I ended up borrowing a shirt from a chap about a foot shorter and four stone lighter than me, which caused much amusement and broke the ice nicely. Shirty stuck after that, although nobody has called me that since I graduated. Any other interesting stories?
