Well my parents were very farsighted and knew this child of theirs would someday work with computers (born in 1957! ;\) ) and also could foretell the future that a company named Microsoft would develop an operating system named 'NT'. Hence they named me Nelson T and when I became engrossed in computers (especially the Windows systems) I gave myself the nickname of NTman. \:o Somewhere on some system Ntman must have been taken so I took Ntman2. That's the long and short and stupid of it. :rolleyes:

My avatar: I've posted this elsewhere on PW. A friend on another music forum saw this profile photo of me in the SDO 2000 production of Lohengrin:

Oh no, I have to explain it again.

I drive a Torch Red 2002 Corvette Z06 with vanity plates ROSSO Z. I spent my younger years (1952 to 1957) in Italy, a country I love. So, ROSSO (Italian for red), Z (as in Z06). Many sites no me by that handle. I even get snail mail addressed to ROSSO Z.

Ke Lang Fei is a Chinese name. I'm originally from the northeast part of the United States now living and teaching in China. Chinese given names tend to be things like "new song" or "will be a professor" or "lucky flower". One of the office people in my school tried to berate me for using too much electricity, water and gas (free in my contract) and called me "langfei" - waster, which I immediately liked. "Ke" is the beginning of my English surname which also happens to mean "guest" in Chinese. So, I have become Ke LangFei. Most Chinese really cannot understand why I would choose such a name but I like it because it fits so well.

well we all come into the world and we all have to check out the key as erol flynn said is that, I've had a hell of a lot of fun and I've enjoyed every minute of it.

I think that says it all.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, leggy blonde in one hand, whisky in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming WOO HOO what a ride!

I picked my nick from one of my favorite book: "The Farseer" trilogy by Robin Hobb - a must-read for every fantasy fan!

Lord Chade is the kings old assassin, but the book is really about his apprentice (Fritz). I mostly picked it because I think it sounds cool, and also because he is a character you get to like when you read the books.
I often use any of "LordChade" "Lord Chade" "Chade" "Lord_Chade" "Chade Fallstar" or "Lord Chade Fallstar" on web forums... :-)

Really strange coincidence. I really don't remember picking out a name when I signed up and somehow I was "assigned" Dame Myra. What is strange is that my first teacher many years ago was a student of Myra Hess, so I kept it.

I got my name from a derivation of the musical term, Andantino, which means moderately fast. One of my favorite pieces that I have been playing a lot lately, is Liszt's Etude XI: Harmonies du Soir which is Andantino.

At one time I wanted to junk this screen name but it's not such an easy thing to do. Then I remembered why I even came up with it.
For any who have seen the Chris Rock movie "Pootie Tang". The screen name comes from the character's name. Pootie Tang is basically a community hero on a grand scale. He is basically worshipped for anything he does and is known for being "for the kids." When Pootie records his latest song live at a radio studio, he takes the mic and makes some elaborate gestures and clearly pours his soul into the mic.....without ever uttering a word or making a single sound. After this 'debut' the producer loses his mind because he can't believe how amazing Pootie's latest creation is. The narrator describes it as "Pootie don't need no words, Pootie don't need no music!" The DJ starts throwing out all the other tapes and CDs and starts chanting like a madman, "Pootie too good! Pootie too good!"

Hope that made some sense. And apparantly Pootie needs no avatar =D

My name is Fran. Many yeras ago, when working as a nurse, this oriental physiscian cornered me and said "Flan... you shop (sharp) nurse" He was a ditrty old man type of guy. My friends and family started to call me Flan (a pronounced like short "o") as a joke. It has taken on a life of its own. When people called me Flan I would usually repond with "ya"... thus the Flanya. Then my huband started to call me Flanya. We really should retire the name as one of my childen told his friend tht he could call me Flanya

Dies Dominicus is Latin for Lord`s Day i.e Sunday. My middle name is Dominik, which, deriving from Latin Dominicus, means either somebody born on Sunday or dedicated to God.

That's easy - it's an anagram for 'likes atonal' (music, I suppose).

As to mine:
As you may know J.S. Bach walked all the way to Lübeck in northern Germany, close to the now Danish border, in 1705 to hear the Danish composer and organist Diderik Buxtehude. Buxtehude offered Bach his chair if he would marry one of his three spinsters. Bach wouldn't (for some reason) - but a forefather of mine would, 9 or 10 generations ago, and here I am today as a result of Bach's 'no thanks' ...
