the reason my nicname is jupiter3888 is because when i was signining up for hotmail my favourite planet to observe with my telescope was jupiter (it has now changed to the moon) and obviously jupiter was taken so i added the numbers of my birthday onto the end - 3rd august 1988.
on another note i use the nicname lunatic in msn messenger lately but have changed it to [LUNA tic] because IMO it looks better

that is all.

NovaProgramming...
I guess mine isn't as interesting as I thought

In that good old game Starcraft... on Battle.Net... I was fortunate enough (a long time ago)  to secure the nickname "Nova"  which I thought was pretty cool.  But it really wasn't... everyone thought that "Nova" was a girls name, so I kept getting hit on... but anyways... When I signed up, I just went with slapping "Programming" on the end, cause... well, yeah.

Nowadays, of course, everyone (who's on my MSN list anyways) knows I'm "Flaid", and that is from Don Miguel's RPG which was released in the oh-so-glorious pirated RPG Maker 2000, where there's a dog who is very badly translated:
Quote from: "Flaid, from Don Miguel's RPG"
My Nick is Flaid!
I am ordinary dog, but you are special man!
I search for you whole my life!
[Don Miguel:] How old you, Flaid?
[Flaid:] Well, I'm big enough... and I'm almost two!  Two weeks old!


I dunno, I thought it was original.  Maybe I'll swing things so that's my nickname here someday... if I decide to stick around this time Wink

For some reason I guess no one who played Starcraft ever played Diablo II, cause the sorcerer gets a move called "Nova", which is where I got the name in the first place...

I also used to get hit on when my name was "PhantasyStarIV"  (cause I love that game to death...) ... so strange, these people and their assumptions.

Well it's a known fact that more American's are obese/overweight by percentage than Australians. Not by much though... It's also known that on average, an American will eat two take-out meals per day, where Aussie's average 1.

Actually, I'm closer to anorexic than fat... SJ Zero is actually stockier than me.

what is this in 'old money'

makes me laugh, we've been metric since about ten years before i was born, yet...

I am 5 foot 10, weigh about 10 and a half stone, was about 8lbs at birth, it's about 2 miles into town.

I want them to metric'ize time next... (i think its about 0.4 o'clock here)

No matter how much you all groan, decimal metric system is useful and more efficient than your ancient ways of counting body parts and lifting stones :lol:

yeah, i do agree, i can never remember how many ounces to a pound, and pounds to a stone.  Its just funny how we've been metric for about 30 years, but in most areas people still use imperial measurements.  (Except greengrocers who get prosecuted if they use imperial)

That's because you are accustomed to old measurements. It's the same when we switched from Pesetas to Euros five years ago. At first it was a nightmare, and nobody knew really how much money they were paying without doing calculations, but now it has changed, I think in Euros now.

The centesimal metric system is simply more simple :lol: at least to do calculations. You know that you always have to add or take away zeroes.

well the U.S. tried once... My mom was in 5th grade. Confused the heck out of everyone.



Plus if we did move to metric.. Think of all the road signs that will need changed! and then people will have to learn to drive in kmph instead of mph...
I mean weights shouldn't mess everything up to bad.. =p
