    David <> Veetid?

    David,

    This may be the stupidest question you have ever gotten and a little off subject, but what is VEETID?

    And just to be fair, my avatar name comes from the fact that I am this unwanted thing that will never go away... a koolaid stain.

    Good luck with wrapping things up, I never realized how much was involved in the process. Hopefully, all the hard work you have put in will pay off. I'm sure a lot of us have had great ideas for inventions and services to make us rich and help our families, but you are actually working to get yours completed! Bravo!

    .... wait.... wait.... okay, asbestos off.... let the flames begin...

    weird story from when I first got on the internet, pre windows based PPP style connections... Talking about terminal connection into a university system using irc, lynx, and ftp...

    I didn't know how to use irc at the time so I asked some other random person on the same network system how to load it. They sent me the command and I copy/pasted it straight from his message and used that to load irc for a couple of weeks...

    he had "veetid" in the place for irc username, so for my first 2 weeks, a long long time ago, on the internet using irc I was known as "veetid"...

    So decided to keep it...

    Never understood what it meant or where it came from...

    david

    Mine comes from well before I discovered the internet. I was under 10 years old.

    Does anyone remember an arcade game called Operation Wolf. It plays a bit like a 2d house of the dead only the gun is fixed to the cabinet, and I was crap at it and all it's clones, however I did one manage to get my name in on one such clone, possibly because it had only just been rebooted so no-one had entered their name yet.

    This particular game had an enter your initials thing, 3 letters, and presented you with the alphabet. you had to shoot the appropriate letter to enter your name and LUM was the result of that. Suffice to say that only one of those letters is actually present in my initials and it's in the wrong place anyway. Also the delete button was next to the enter key.

    To save face with my "audience" I claimed that I always used that and started entering it on arcade games that I didn't suck at too, so the name stuck.

    The fact that it's also the name of an anime character (who now features in my avatar, albiet slightly modified) who happened to have been created in the year that I was born ('79) is pure co-incidence. I only got to like said anime because people on IRC assumed I already did like it so I figured I'd better watch the bloody thing! I did and I was hooked.
