    As some of you know, I was trying to fit excessive force on a license plate. I still didn't shorten it enough to fit. Max characters in Florida is 8. This was back before I was even online if I remember right. Anyway, I had a few screennames I used the first year or so I was online. I used xsivforce for the first time at the good ol' xp-erience.org (now NTFS.org). Don't remember what made me choose that when I joined. It kinda stuck after that.

  14. I was signing up for a Yahoo account, and UnleashedZero was the example.. so I ditched Zero and stuck with Unleashed. If anyone saw my old sig it said "Unleashed from the tethers of reality" - I live in my own dimension :p

    Im so lame :rolleyes:

    I used to smoke a lot when I was younger, and got into playing UT.
    Needing a nic, i chose Erbman.. Yeh, I know...grow up! hehe...

    That name has stuck for most of my online gaming history,
    so I'm kinda stuck with it now.

    When I stumbled accross XP-erience.org many moons ago,
    I registered under the name Erbman. I lurked for a while, and posted seldomly.

    I was at work one day, and stuck with a problem,
    I turned to XP-erience, only to find it had morphed into NTFS.org.
    This in itself wasn't a problem, the fact I had previously been allowing the
    cookies to log me in, meant I couldn't remember what password I'd used :eek: .

    Asking for a password via email was futile, as I was at work, and the email
    address i'd registered Erbman in was my home one, and I needed assistance
    there and then.
    So the work email address and a new account bumped uglies, and so was
    born Erbmaster, the Son of Erb' :)

    So I guess NTFS.org is partly responsible for that :)
    I've used that here ever since, and it's kinda sticking too... :p

    I don't really remember how I got mine, but I think it had something to do with Knight Rider...the TV show. :D

    Taken from a Metallica song, razorback, proper spelling is too common and taken.
    Still not sure what razorback is or means.
