    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 )

    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...

    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)

    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

    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.

    Incredibly interesting
