I'd love to say 'Piptol' had some deep and hidden meaning. It does have some significance.. but mainly I just like it cos it's short, snappy and unique.

My nickname in real-life is 'Monday'. Simply because my mates caught me on a date with a girl when I'd sneaked out the house and not told them about it.. and it happened to be on a bank-holiday monday..  :lol:

It's a coincidence that it's symmetric

thats called a palindrome.

I feel that using my real name is way too formal for some reason. I guess its also something about the internet that allows you to reinvent yourself, and I take great delight in that. (I dont modify my personality though, I stay true to myself.)

However I certainly see why some people would prefer their real name to use. Its just a matter of preference.

I feel the same way.
The origin of my nickname is pretty lame...I was stumped as for what name I was going to use to sign up for some forum..so I let my eyes wander. Lo and behold, I saw the Delete key...you can guess the rest. Wink

SSC is short and simple, though hard for some people to say in voice chat =) but it stands for the name I gave my creations.

It started as Smithco Games (Smith being my last name), after further consideration though it was changed to SmithcoSoft Creations those initials being SSC, I have a few other names but I mostly stick with that.
