Your Title Explained

Mine is this cool name I thought up while hanging out with a few buds and kicking it... OK I'll admit the name isn't cool and I wasn't hanging out when it was thought up... It is my actual name so no glamorous story about how it came about :(

+warwagon

Back in 2001 when I was working at an internet help desk, I thought I should give all of the computers in my apartment names, but how should I name them? So I thought, "Let's use John Wayne Movies.". I pulled up a list of movies and picked

The Warwagon (Shortened to just warwagon, it was the name of my desktop system)

Dakota (other computer in the house)

Tycoon (server)

I no longer call my computers those names but because my main system was called warwagon" I started using that as a user name.

So that is the answer that was the mystery about how warwagon got his name!

Coi

Many years ago I saw someone named Hoi in a multiplayer game (hoi means hello in dutch) so I decided to change my nickname (which then started with a C) to Coi, but I often use C?i as well.

I avoid using C?i too much in forums and other databases, because ? is a pretty exceptional character and could be misunderstood by many systems (it either dissappears, changes to some other random character or just isn't allowed)..

Despite the difference with my avatar, I still decided to change my Neowin Display Name to C?i, simply because I can ;)

Mine's an alias I use online.... I used to have a domain where I could create anyemailaddress@mydomain.com... so I made up the name Alex Jones and the email address alexjones@mydomain.com for signing up for a load of pr0n sites a while ago... then it kinda stuck :p

Mine is more or less what people are referred to in my city where I live. So, Medford = medfordite. Nothing too spectacular. :)

I suppose I could have used my old dial up name on GEnie (old online service from GE that was Dialup), or Compuserve, but can't really use my old GEnie one because I use that name as part of a password rarely, and for Compuserve...well...forgot it. :)

Xerax

Xerax - I was banned from a halo modding forum (HaloMods) when i was 12, and I wanted to make another account to ask why I was banned. I was in the computer room and next to me was a Xerox printer, the name Xerox was taken so i changed the o to an a (first letter of my first name), and that wasn't taken.

MASTER260: When I joined the NSider1 Forums, I wanted to be, "POKEMONMASTER." It was taken though, so I chose one of the suggested names, POKEMONMASTER260. Years later, when I joined the JoeJoe Forums, I decided to delete the, "POKEMON," part, & have used the result ever since.

DirtyLarry

I have used the nickname Dirty Larry since around 8th grade, which is *cough* 1988.

In around 7th-8th grade, It was actually given to me by a good friend of mine one day. I always really liked movies, and my house was the house all of my friends hung out at as I had really cool parents. The TV was always on in the background, and one day we were all hanging out at my parents house and the movie Magnum Force was on. For those that do not know, that is the movie that stars Clint Eastwood that introduced the character Dirty Harry.

Anyway my friend was commenting about how even though we looked nothing alike, he though I reminded him of this character as he was "always calm under pressure" and he had a unique way of carrying himself. He was known for being a man of few words, but when he spoke it was usually for a reason. My character traits have always been similar.

Actually here is an old signature where I put my face on the Dirty Harry character from one of the posters for the movies.

Also at the time I was really into Hip Hop and also Graffiti, so it was my first "persona" when I got into Graffiti and (yes I am not kidding) rhyming.

A few years later, the name went on to be something completely different. By my senior year in high school, I had pretty much garnered a reputation for being a player with the ladies. So my friends would refer to me as "DirtyLarry" as I was a pretty big womanizer, especially because I had developed a reputation for totally screwing girls over once we hooked up. I always "did them dirty" so to speak. Hence, DirtyLarry had a new meaning.

I am not particularly proud of the second meaning whatsoever, but I was young and it is what it is.

So yeah, it has been my nickname and has had various levels of meaning since the late 1980's.

      by Usama Jawad

      Sony has recently churned out some good games for its PlayStation 4 console including God of War and Detroit: Become Human. However, it appears that the company has so much new in store for its E3 2018 conference that it has decided to reveal some of its upcoming games ahead of the show.



      In a blog post, Sony has announced that it will be revealing the names of some of its upcoming PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR over the next few days. The detailed schedule is as follows:

We'll likely learn more in the next few days leading up to Sony's E3 Showcase, which is scheduled to begin at Monday, June 11, 6pm PT.

      There has been a sharp increase in the number of cases involving certified used cars that have been previously wrecked or have other substantial problems, says the consumer attorney Daniel Blinn of the Connecticut-based Consumer Law Group.

      Consumers pay a premium for certified used cars because those vehicles typically come with a manufacturer's warranty and are marketed as having been thoroughly checked to ensure the vehicle meets high manufacturer standards. For example, Toyota boasts of a certified pre-owned checklist that includes 160 items. "We check 160 points," the Toyota website says. "All to prove one point: Only the best get to be Toyota Certified Used Vehicles."

      But they may not be the best after all, says Blinn, who points to evidence that some dealers don't conduct the detailed inspections.

      Often dealers automatically certify late-model used cars, which means consumers get stuck paying hundreds of dollars extra for manufacturer warranties even if they don't want them. Consumer Reports is not a big fan of these warranties, believing instead that consumers should bank that extra money and instead buy reliable used vehicles that have been thoroughly checked by a mechanic.

          When buying a used car, don't assume that certification means the vehicle hasn't been wrecked, flooded, or suffered other serious damage, or that it's even been properly inspected.

          Inspect the front and back of the vehicle title. Verify that the mileage statement agrees with the vehicle's odometer and that the title isn't "branded" with "Salvage," "Junk," "Rebuilt," Flood," "Recovered theft," "Lemon law buyback," or similar terms that indicate the car or truck has a troubled past. Also verify that there is no unpaid loan. If the dealer won't let you see the title or doesn't have it, take a pass on that vehicle.

          Expect the dealer to provide a free used-car history report from Carfax or AutoCheck, and then call the reporting service to verify the report hasn't been altered. Also conduct a free VINCheck vehicle-history search at the National Insurance Crime Bureau website. But keep in mind that vehicle history reports can miss a lot. Over the years, we've found many examples of wrecked vehicles that had clean reports. That can happen, for example, if a vehicle is self-insured, which often is the case for rental cars, or if the damaged car or truck isn't covered by collision insurance and an accident report isn't filed with police.

          No matter how good that used car looks, have it checked out by a reliable mechanic, preferably one experienced in auto body work. Don't rely on your mechanic's offer to do a quick inspection free. A used vehicle must be checked thoroughly, a service for which you should expect to pay about $100. Ask the mechanic what the inspection will entail, and request a written report. If a dealer won't let you take the car to your mechanic, go elsewhere. It's a sign he's hiding something. Don't let a dealer persuade you to forgo the inspection because the vehicle is certified or covered by a manufacturer's warranty.

          If you must make a deposit before obtaining an inspection, make sure the paperwork says it's refundable. And always use a credit card. That way, if there are any shenanigans, you can ask your card issuer to initiate a chargeback. If you pay by cash or check or by using a debit card, getting your money back can be a hassle even if you can prove that the dealer engaged in wrongdoing.

          If you buy a used car?certified or not?and discover that it had previous accident damage or other serious problems that a dealer failed to disclose, contact a consumer attorney and your local or state consumer protection agency.

      Hi Guys!
      As part of my Software Engineering degree, I have to do a "Dissertation Project" in my final year. This involves creating a creating a piece of software, and doing various academic research/write ups about it.
      I'm struggling to choose a good title/project for my dissertation. I'm very interested in web design - and it would probably be good to do a 'web-based' dissertation.
      I was thinking about doing something on "Responsive Web Design", but I'm worried that it might become outdated after a few years.
      I was also interested in creating a "Simple CMS Application" but not sure if this would be advanced enough.
      I would really value any ideas or feedback from you guys! Its such an important decision, and I'm sure you guys will know what's best.

      I am having an odd problem with Hellobar.
      I have tested this in Opera, Safari and Firefox and they all display fine except for Internet Explorer...I am seeing this problem with both IE8 and IE9
      Here is the site: www.kleenkuip.com P.S. Make sure your speakers aren't cranked up, there is a spokesperson.
      If you notice the green HelloBar at the top there are images on the very right side and very left side. They are exposing the alt or title tags for the images and pushing the alt text below the graphic...it looks really ugly and messes up the look of the site.
      Any suggestions?
      Thanks

      We are 12 days away from the final UFC card of the year. Since it was announced, it has taken some blows due to injury and lost some of it's star power. Still, it's an overall solid card and should deliver. Card still isn't final with Jamie Varner vs Melvin Guillard being moved over from the TUF 16 Finale and nobody being able to explain how Erik Perez vs Byron Bloodworth is so high on the Preliminary order. I'll post the full card, with the correct bout order, as soon as it's available.
