    I signed up for my first email account on Yahoo back in 97-98 when I was working in the bicycle industry. Emilio@ was already taken so I added the diameter of a road bicycle wheel = 700c
    To keep things simple I use emilio700 pretty much everywhere unless it's 949Racing.

    Aside from their cost I never understood why people race them.

I quite snowboarding after obtaining a motorcycle at around 22 years old in order to balance my budget. After selling the motorcycle I refrained from snowboarding due to lack of health insurance.

    I've never seen anyone else use this username, so it seems to have been a good choice.

    Well, sonny boy, the McCocken name traces waaay back to the Scottish low-land tribes. My brother, Jacob, or "Jock" carries on the our fine family tradition of superb Golfing skill. Our grandfather was a ball striker of some notoriety, perhaps some of you may have heard of him, Bruce "Putt" McCocken. Unfortunately, I do not possess the skills of my family heritage. Being left-handed, my swing was neither fluid nor especially accurate, so my game seemed "forced", hence my first name, "Force". My real first name is actually Robert, or Bob for short.

    LOL, OMG. I got the chills watching that. Took me back to the time. I dressed just like those guys and everything. Seriously, how embarrassing. Interestingly enough, i did use this game to supplement my running. I was a distance runner in high school and when i started college, a set of 5 songs would wind me in the same manner as running a mile at race pace.

    Oh excellent, I did cross country and 1 and 2 mile. I feel like a hipster when it comes to running. We did it before it was cool for all these freaking 20 and 30 somethings to do their half marathons.

    The etymology for my user name is simple. Johnny is just another form of my first name and 7 is for the RX-7 (FC) I once owned.
    If nothing happens and there is no one around why did it not happen?

    I always thought your user name is related to the movie "SEVEN" Maybe it is just the way it is written,or may be some of your posts........

    I don't remember why I picked this username. They do say the memory is the second thing to go...

    Was playing my first game of multiplayer Quake before half of you were born. After spending about an hour getting the stupid 10baseT LAN to work I was told I needed a screen name, so I typed in the first thing which entered my head.

    One of my pals had a screen name "his gay lover". I couldn't work out why until he blew me up and the console emitted "flink was killed by his gay lover". Later, flink fragged his gay lover.
    Olitho, jimt and DocNrock like this.

    My name is Brett (not Brent; I still don't know who he is) and I graduated from UCF in Orlando. About 10 years ago, I was trying to figure out an email name for a Hotmail account that would not involve a lot of numbers because so many others had chosen the same name. When I typed in UCFBrett, it was still available, and I've been using it ever since.

    ...you're gonna make me do it:

    Hailey Woodruff | Los Angeles, CA | Rock / Progressive / Hard Rock | Music, Lyrics, Songs, and Videos | ReverbNation


    Cars and metal music - something about the two keeps me going, so I am enslaved... every penny I make, every breath I take; can't help muhself.

    For those who don't know, I'm a general surgeon. I also played lead guitar in a couple of bands back in the day. I've been using DocNrock since the mid '90s. RockinDoc and anything like it was already taken back then.

    Lead guitar? I didn't know that. What bands where you in?
