    Way back in the Telnet BBS days, my username was Bios. (I've been a computer junkie all my life)

    Anyhow, I started playing a Telnet BBS Multi-User Dungeon (MUD) game called MajorMUD and I picked a Half-Ogre (race) Witchunter (Class) My name was Bios, but it also required a surname. Given that the Witchunter class had the highest level of combat skill and the half-ogre was extremely strong and had massive amounts of hitpoints. It made me pretty much a killing machine. Or more aptly. A Slaughter Machine.

    Bios SlaughterMachine was my name and that was the birth of the name SlaughterMachine.

    Well, I lifted my screen name from Hollywood. Lothos came from two of my favorite shows/movies way back when: Quantum Leap and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

    Quantum Leap - Lothos was the AI that jumped the "evil" leapers.

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Lothos was the main vampire who was played by Rutger Hauer. The death scene by Paul Reubens still cracks me up.

    I've been using the screen name ever since I could enter a name in LoZ: Ocarina of Time.

    Mine is pretty basic. I used to be a roughneck. When I got an email account the first time at Hotmail, it had 265 other roughnecks, so I got 266... Boring, I know.

    Hey guys!

    My name comes from WoW. I used this name on many servers. Khartun (Cartoon).

    I now use it on Fantasy book forums and Goodreads as well.

    Well mine is pretty simple and obvious most likely.

    My favorite TV show ever was Sons of Anarchy.

    Teller and Morrow are the last names of the main two characters and their bike shop business is know as Teller Morrow.

    So I ran with it.

    This is about your screen name, not about who I am. :)

    I wish Quantum Leap would have gotten another season to tie things up better. I didn't really like the finale.

    My user name comes from a silly old 80's movie called "Big Trouble In Little China". I always know if someone recognizes the name, that they have exemplary taste in the finer things of life.

    What was it that you didn't like?

    I didn't like that
    they never sent him home. I thought they would - like he wanted to do the whole series but Sam never returned home.

    I think I read at one time had there been a Season 6, they would have Sam leaping to the future. Al also would have become a leaper to chase after Sam. Apparently, he was going to be missing for part of the season.

    Much better. Yeager is still begging for the Hello Kitty theme though.

    Back in 2000 I go into the pizza business for a few years. I got out in 2005, but thankfully my love of pizza has never waned.
