Fortified: To strengthen, secure, or give strength to.

I like building others up and showing them that they are capable more than they ever dreamed. When you feel like you can do anything, you surely can. Also, I was in the U.S. Army, so I picked this screename as to say, "I'm strengthening and protecting my country and protecting the people that live in it." :D

If nothing else, it freakin' sounds cool.

The reason I added the four in the front is so that my name would show up first on the username search...

....ok, not really. :P

Mine means something along the lines of tough and not emotional. I just chose it because you don't see it often.

Commanderraf, well back in the good old days I used to play Command & Conquer a lot, and I loved how in the cut scenes they address your unseen character as Commander. So, the first time I played it over an IP connection I chose Commander Raf (Raf for my name, Rafael), but since it had space for only 12 characters, it ended up as Commanderraf. I liked the ring of it and stuck with it since... 1996, if I recall corectly. Besides, as it is seldomly used name, so I use it for everything on the net.

-Commanderraf

bob_george33: When i was about 12, I signed up for a Runescape account, I wanted a name that was different and somehow I got bob_george33. On one forum, after introducing myself, someone replied with "Hello boy george". I kept the name for forum, and internet use, but my other alias TehMehNahTah, I use for gaming, because it makes it harder to trace from games to internet and vice-versa.

Got mine from playing some online game when I was 11. Some Unreal 1 based game. The "guild" name was eGo and I added various things to the end of it. i.e. eGoManiak, eGoWaffles, etc. Both of those examples, I still use in forums and games.

Monster Magnet is a stoner rock band I admire.

Shout any random lyric from them at me, and I'll shout back the name of the song, the album, the band members at the time before I start humming the next part of the song.

My username comes from my 4-6 grade lunch ID/CMT taking number, 99671. If I had to take a state standardized test, I'd have to write that number on the test, and If I ordered lunch. However, since I moved to a different town, My new number is: 569463
