umm... first four letters of my last name (Oberholzer).... and the last four numbers are what i hope to make as part of my weekly salary some day... (ok, not really... but i can't tell you about the last four numbers or i'd have to kill you)
actually... GovtCheez would know where it came from, being from the *cough* prestigous *cough* Ghetto University I picked it up there and it just kinda stuck... my handle elsewhere is bige7... which raises too many questions to even bother with.. (it's a baseball thing, i swear )

I'll never tell you where I came up with the userid "Deckard"! Muhahahaha!
Hey ober - go to the KU website - did you know we have a hockey team? I'm gonna go see them play (even if they are just A-section) - the Feb 8 game's about a half hour from my house
So far, I think either maes or l@d have the advantage for coolest story...
hockey team? where the hell do they play??? OHH... i get it, they froze the flow of pure s***, i mean the flint river.... ??? heck, i'd go see em play just to sit and laugh if it wasn't 8 hours away...
Home games are probably wherever the Generals play (or maybe UM-Flint)...
This game's at LCC...
I don't how much they suck - they won their last game 6-4 (probably after threatening to make the other team do calculus)
Or maybe sit through a class where the opening lecture conatains "Hello, I'm Judith Wolbert" (substitute Bhag Guru, Judson Singer, or Richard Bolander as necessary)

A litle more of the that nice fluid and I would probably have written the same as you.

i had been fighting a basilisk in baldur's gate and it turned one of my party to stone - i liked the name. my aim name is different because i think someone had gone through the entire AD&D list of creatures as nearly everything was taken. I do sometimes turn up on other boards as Copper Dragon as they are chaotic good which is the alignment i always play (and yes yes yes i know i am sad)
Do not meddle in the ways of dragons, for thou art crunchy and taste good with ketchup
> they are chaotic good which is the alignment i always play
Hey - same here! (except for druids, which are kinda locked into true neutral)
> i know i am sad
(significantly less enthusiastic) Hey - same here....
I like lawful good... I think Paladins are like that if I remember correctly.
Yeah, but then you can't smack someone down if they get in your way. I like CG just because it's so flexible (talking more in pen and paper than computer). Be good, but only as much as you want to....
There was so much imaginiation involved in the creation of my name...See, my name is ken( ), so I put it all up in caps to annoy people...only problem being that the old board didn't allow 3-letter names, so I had to go searching for something to stick on the sides.
