Subject: WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE YOUR FORUM HANDLE?
Date Posted: 29 Nov 2011 at 12:21pm
I'm hoping this is the right place to post this topic. If there is already a thread in this vein on the site, please mods, feel free to do what you have to do.
 
Sooo...I chose "sulla" because the original Lucius Cornelius Sulla Felix is a hero of mine (I'm a Roman history geek). He was a ruthless ******* with a warped sense of humour (I'm a warped ******* with a ruthless sense of humour so there's a kind of symmetry!). He had the chance to be the first Roman Emperor (about a century before Augustus), but gave it up because he wanted to drink and root himself to death instead of being burdened with having to wipe Rome's collective stinky bum. LEGEND.
 
My sig adorned his gravestone - "NO BETTER FRIEND, NO WORSE ENEMY".
 
That's my story. What's yours?

from memory his brother became emperor didnt he?
so many emperors with about 35 or 40 in the 2nd centry alone
supprisingly, silver coins from the Roman area are dirt cheap. I own a few coins from the time of Christ and BC. You can buy them from $40

Also supprised at the size of the people back then, a large ring worn by them is 18 to 20mm accross with the average being about 14mm to 16mm. Now measure your wedding ring, 20 to 24mm?
The Roman people were possibly only 5 to 5'6 tall.
Not really what we think is it.
I also enjoy Roman history but know very little of it.

Barrie because I wanted to make sure I didnt forget my handle

No; he did have a half brother Publius (who'd been adopted by one of the richest men in Rome) that he found out about later in life, but he was killed by Sulla's arch enemy Marius for his money. If you want to learn more about Roman history Barrie, check out http://www.unrv.com - www.unrv.com - an excellent site and just like this one if you have questions you want answered.

Got me wondering now who was the emperor that had the brother that didnt want to be emperor.
So civilised but also so brutal.
Have you bought any coins or rings? Makes studing those parts of history more almost personal.
I will book mark that site.

I think the emperor you have in mind is Claudius - he was after his brother Caligula who was the third emperor from memory. The Praetorian guard got sick of Caligula (he was mad), killed him, and acclaimed Claudius emperor against his wishes.

Sulla - Cool thread.  I thought Sulla had.. "No friend ever served me, and no enemy ever wronged me, whom I have not repaid in full" on his gravestone though?  I may be wrong, im not that historically inclined.
 
I chose my name because all my friends know me.. Wink

That's the tag on Sulla's gravestone that history has embellished. Historians alive at the time to see his tomb (Cornelians were inhumed instead of cremated) attest that his actual tag was more straight to the point, although with Latin (as with Maori!!) you have room for artistic licence when translating!!
Loryda is a cool handle bro. Makes me think of the Cheech and Chong song!!

Yep! It's a bit of a geeky handle, but I'm comfortable with my geekiness. It's a shame that they don't teach Ancient History very well in college anymore. I wont comment on when I suspect you went to school Capt Asparagus!!

I honestly have doubts about that, The size of rings that were worn suggests that they were a lot smaller.
Cyclops was based on fact and he was a giant at an estimated 6'6''

I have bought a few of the largest rings and the largest I have been able to find is 18 to 19mm but there are plenty of 13 to 16mm

After the 1st century AD, there were pysical qualifications such as height - before that there was a property qualification (you had to be able to supply your own gear. In the last century BC, Gaius Marius changed the playing field by letting the poor of Rome into the legions and opened the floodgates for others to be allowed, such as the provincials). But by that era there were a lot of conscripts in the legions who were from other parts of the empire ie Gauls, Germans, Spaniards. Gauls and Germans in particular were considered giants by the Romans, but reports from Caesars' Gallic Wars say that "giant" was 6"3, 6"4. Once the Romans figured out that they could get the provincials to man the legions, true Romans from Rome ceased to feature in the Legions.

On second thoughts, unless you are already in long term counselling, perhaps you should not see me in my lime-green lycra uniform, purple cape, flying helmet and goggles, with a pair (or two) of socks shoved down the front for the heroic posing to impress ze ladeez.

Homage to my father in law and my wife. Was never into fishing, untill he gave me his share of his boat. A ramco dominator 555. He gave me/us the boat on condition I married his daughter...(was going to anyhoo). He allways called his daughter peanut (small and cute as a...) so found it fit when we took full ownership of the boat to name it after her. peanut.
Nothing to do with drugs.

Greywulff,
 
The Grey Wulff represents a bushy, high floating spent mayfly, that remains visible into the evening twilight, and rides well in rough water. Every modern fly angler should have one or more of Lee Wulff's innovations in there flybox.

The Wulff series of fly patterns were developed by Lee Wulff. Lee died in his 86th year at the controls of his light plane in 1991.

I was given my first Greywulff at the age of 7 and over the years spent countless hours hunting down big Irish trout with one of these flies. Also named two boats Greywulff, the fly is that good.....

well mine was sort of allocated to me way back in the early 70's ... Always had a passion for fishing and was keen to learn and caught heaps... All the parties I attended , I would bring a fresh caught whole snapper or two, wrapped in foil with salt,  pepper, butter, lemon rings and heaps of dill and parsley.. These were thrown on the BBQ and devoured as an entree to the main bbq meal... when new folk came to meet me.. they would then say...  oohhhh your that "fisher" guy that brings all the magic fish...  so "fisher" just stuck....  I have used it on all the forums I attend but found there was another already here so changed it.. but it just didn't feel right.. so on here I became  *fisher*

Mate I thought you use to be in the navy years ago because thats the nick name that was given to Artificers (technical ratings) dating back to the 60's, it meant "Most Useless Prick Pussers Ever Trained" ( Catchelot was one LOL) Pussers is a in house nick name for Navy, said as sounding like the sore full of puss Confused LOL

I was originally Monts but Grunta said if I wanted Monty he could make it happen, Peter Montgomery is now no longer a member with the name Monty LOL I still owe Grunta that beer and its been a few years, sorry Grant, one day I promise.

After many years a of been called tugboat a good mate of mine, a real character who has since passed away was standing in a bar having a few drinks and he turns round and says to me i think i call you tugger, piss off ya wan-ker i said, brushed it off thinken that'll never stick but the name hit rockstar status and has been with me now for the last 12 yearsStern Smile and its been 12 years since ive shaken a womans hand after been introduced to them by my now first name. 
The name has stuck so much so that me family and friends all call me tugger and those that wana be nice tug!!

I used to tow my boat to work every day and get the boys started then go fishing,being hard to miss on job sites towing a 6 mtr boat i soon got the reputation of doing more fishing than working,got to the point that my boss just expected me to be fishing.
He would ring me up and the 1 st thing out of his mouth would be "suppose your off fishing"    Yep " im off for a fish" would be the reply.
My wife was the same,she would find out where i was by looking online at the bank acc and see where i brought gas,would get a txt " looks like your fishing again ". Yep im off for a fish....one day i got home and she had me the personalised plate Of2fsh...names stuck ever since

Mate I thought you use to be in the navy years ago because thats the nick name that was given to Artificers (technical ratings) dating back to the 60's, it meant "Most Useless Prick Pussers Ever Trained" ( Catchelot was one LOL) Pussers is a in house nick name for Navy, said as sounding like the sore full of puss Confused LOL

I was originally Monts but Grunta said if I wanted Monty he could make it happen, Peter Montgomery is now no longer a member with the name Monty LOL I still owe Grunta that beer and its been a few years, sorry Grant, one day I promise.



Cheers for the inspiration on the name change, approached Grunta last week, done the same for me. Cheers grant

You don't need the help of a Forum Moderator (or Grunta for that matter) to change your forum handle.  The "How-to" has been mentioned on here many, many times.....

Hm...I wonder if anyone actually wants to change their handle though Shocked afterall it's unique and that's how others identify us?

Yes, you are probably correct, Andy.  I thought long and hard about changing my forum handle - even had a new one ready to change to - and then a forum member told me that no matter what I decided to call myself, I would always be "Olfart" to him.  
So I decided there is some value in being unique......LOL

Why dont we use our real names on the internet? If we have nothing to hide why do we all use fake names and only for the internet. Knowone can do anything if they know our real names. Its no different to the real world.

 
I once asked my mate whos not even into technology or computers and hardly even uses the internet what his name was on the website so we could play a game of poker HU. He told me his real name and then looked at me like i was some sort of mentally challenged neandathol.
 
Thats was what made me think about how we all follow the sheep subconsiously. And it probably all started when microsoft were testing the internet for the first time and made a robot called Test2000 or something. lol.
 
Back to question. I choose my handle cause i couldnt think of anything else on the spot and was at the whalf trying to cach livebaits and all i was getting was frikin paketis irritating the crap outta me all that day.

Mine is my nick name in real life which stems from my surname. Full nick name is Dirty Old Bung Old Uncle Harry, which I was christened with during a messed up and twisted New Years Eve Party Wink  plus I'm a foul mouthed, crude humoured, grotty bugger.

I agree with that - it is my second language after all...
Still it does remotely look like English where I am still scratching my head over feijoa's one...

Surprised you guys dont know what Feijoa was saying. Its  honky tonk slang from a new Language that first came to light in the Auckland City council office last year. Its called "Brownese" .
