I was clicking through the Pidgin menu and one of the options is "Mute Sounds", to literally mute the sounds. I liked it.

Techno_Funky
:/ obsession with music? :D

Same here, the time I signed up at this forum I was obsessed with the genre Techno and since I was obsessed with technology as well this name did its dual purpose. Funky was just random Idont remember much but I guess I picked it up from some Techno song.

I've recently contemplated changing this nickname after nearly 7 years of use - pretty much my entire timespan spent on the Internet. But anyways, as to where it came from (posted on another forum a few years ago, with some alterations):

This started back in 2001. A friend had this obsession of calling himself 'THE man' - before that he was toying around with email addresses like "mrsbinladen30304@hotmail"... stuff like that. So I countered that one day by creating a personal site on Geocities, then Tripod (both now long dead) called 'the REAL man's site'. Of course 'realman', never mind 'theman' was used a thousand times, with numbers following the word 'realman'. Since the year was 2001, the online form suggested I use 'realman20010', so I accepted. For the next two years, I would use 'realman20010' whenever I signed up for something on a site, for instance, Hotmail (take a guess as to what it is :p), or variations of it whenever I forgot my original account's password.

Starting from 2003, I thought having the word 'realman' in my nicknames was a bit foolish, and kind of gives the wrong impression of me flaunting a big ego. :p I abbreviated it to RM20010 (or rm20010) ... and that remains as my nickname ever since for just about everything, except my email address. I'd get a new email address it but I can't be bothered to abandon my 7 year old inbox and force all my contacts to add my new address. Compare this to friends that hold onto email accounts for about a year or two. To this day people still give me a weird look whenever I give them my email address, or explain what my nickname expands to. :ermm:

-Vivicidal-

I wanted a user name that wouldn't be taken anywhere so that I didn't need loads of numbers on the end of it, so I put together the first part of a title of a song from a random song, (Vivica), which gave me vivi- and after looking it up, I found vivicide was the destruction of any and all life, so I made my name: Vivicidal - therefore: a word describing something that causing the destruction of any and all life.

Um, quite a number of years back with an old girlfriend and other ppl we were watching retarded movies and one of them was a thumb puppet reenactment of the Blair Witch Project called the Blair Thumb. One of the characters introduced himself as "Jish" and I don't know if I was just drunk or stupid or what but all the movie characters laughed at it as a joke and I laughed at it for like half an hour, and came home later and used it as a username ever since.

I just added "the" cos SOMEBODY ELSE TOOK IT AND TAKES IT ON SO MANY SITES WTF:/ </rant> and I dislike numbers in my name lol.
