Name you have chosen here

#1 Post by PandorasThinkpad » Fri Dec 25, 2020 8:59 pm

What does this name stand for?

To start, i my case it is if Pandora (the one with the chest) would have had an Thinkpad, so this is me, an artist from middle europe..

Not anymore member in the german forum but still in this forum..

Sincerly,

PandorasThinkpad
My most actual Thinkpad:
T23 with 1,2 GHz PIII-M, CCFL XGA, big Docking and even an very seldom Ultrabay2000 Zip250 Drive
T450s with I7, FHD (AUO B140HAN01.3), 20GB Ram (one with no lenovo guarantee anymore because of real bad experiences with lenovo support)

Well, let's see. My name is Mike, and I have a 1968 Cadillac DeVille Convertible. Not too hard to figure out.

Mine comes from the colloquial term used in my native language for Citroen DS, the car I used to drive for many years. It was the head of the musicians union that I belonged to 30+ years ago who used to refer to me as (rough translation to follow) "Georgie The Shark" and the nickname stuck. "Ajkula" - with some slightly different spellings observed - means "shark" in several other Slavic languages.

Mine comes from my first public online handle that I set up to use on an online multiplayer game from over 20 years ago that involved WWII fighter combat (Anyone remember Fighter Ace II on the old MSN Gaming Zone??). Looking for something intimidating I wanted to be "the terminator" but the name was already taken - so the server randomly suggested "theterminator93" instead. I took it, and that has stuck with me ever since.

Mine's the name of a river and a region in the interior of British Columbia. I spent a good part of my childhood there and did a lot of travelling and camping throughout the area.

I was lazy and needed to complain about my W530; "ThinkTwinki" was a few steps above "asdasfalksjd."

Now I'm stuck with it.

I was here in true name from 2007-2010 or so, then forgot the password.

So then I just re-registered with my initials.
