TROY = First Name [wow]
ODA = Play on Yoda and Toyota cars. I used to LOVE Toyota cars until I drove one. And I love Star Wars.
1990 = Year I was born

troyoda is pretty much a nick name I've had since I was 10 when we used to play Bolo in my Computer class in school. Troyoda just rang a bell, and ever since then, I've used it for everything.

Many may remember my old nicknames, such as ddrmaxromance [even though I played DDR games about about a month there and kept the name forever. lol], PokemonTrainer_64 [too funny], and APbassking08 for being in Advanced Placement classes, playing bass drums, and being section leader [or king] for my jazz band and graduating in 2008.

Mine has no meaning, I was getting tired of my old screen name, and i was watching a commercial for "Kikkoman Chicken Teriyaki Sauce". I could never spell it right... so the current spelling stuck. I rolled a die for the numbers

Wow, it's so interesting to see how people came up with their screen names!

Mine, well...
I can't really remember. I think I was playing Sonic when I registered for a forums. Then it just stuck. I never changed it on any other forums, and I now use it to register for new accounts on new websites.

And no, it does not have anything to do with my name. :P

maybe this thread should be moved to the new "About You, Me and Everything Inbetween" section?

When I was about 10 for some reason I liked to use the word freak in my usernames which carried on for some time(no idea why) and I like Beta's. Pretty simple really. Given the option i'd change it now as it looks stupid imo.

My wife and job treat me like a Rented Mule... they work me until I break, then want to send me back from where I came for my troubles.

No. I'm not bitter.

What would you change it to? I'm considering allowing name changes for a short while to see if it still breaks the forum...

Andy, if your considering name changes, I'd love it if you could change my name to J.Byrne.
(If only I could change my real name, I know way too many Joshua's)

The picture shows your state, country and ip, not mine, also the server is based in the UK.

date, time, etc... 100% dynamic to end-user

and if you looked up the isp from the ip address in the picture you looked up your own ip.

"rayle" is the first part of my netname, Rayle Terleir.

Rayle was an altered spelling of Rail. It originated from my Quake 3 Arena days, where my favourite gun was the Rail Gun (wasn't half bad with it either! :P ).

Well, I don't know really why I picked this nickname, I used it in Counter-Strike for a few months around the time I registered. So I figured it'd be pretty logical to use the same nickname to keep everything straight.


However, I usually go by SonicSpeed on most other forums, although I bet that nickname is fairly popular.

AtomicGamer is just a tag I've had for awhile now playing online games. I'm more of a casual gamer however playing games such as Halo 1, the classics such as Doom and I've also used this tag for emulation of playing smash 64 over Kaillera.
