Old nickname given to me by my dad. In russian it approximates to "Trouble maker", it is one of those words thats very hard to explain in English.

Antaris

It was a character in a story I had started writing back in school, some 10 years ago now. I've not seen it used much elsewhere, except as Antares, which is quite popular in sci-fi.

Grepus

My old hotmail address was getting spammed to hell, back in 1999/2000 so I decided I wanted a new one. I looked at my desk at work for inspiration and saw a bottle of Super Glue... Reversed it and changed the space so it read: Eul_Grepus... Grepus has stuck ever since.

That Guy

I was on the Xbox, and my friend had created his character and name and everything which took for ever..

So when I was typing my name "Sam" on the on screen keyboard, which takes ages, I did the "S" the "a" but my friend says "just do Sazz instead - the mouse is closer to the Z than the M, which is on the other side of the screen."

And that's the Sazz bit. I just added the 181 bit for no reason whatsoever.

BGM

When I first started playing FPS games (some 15 years ago), my handle was Big Green Monkey..

this proved to be a bit of a mouthful over comms etc, so it was abbreviated by my team to BGM, and I've used it ever since wherever possible!

It used to pretty much always be free on forums, but in recent years it has become more difficult to grab it :)

I'd be interested if this was something more meaningful then just a cool name, and a reference to greek mythology..
