Wasn't Jalen Rose #5 on Toronto while Charlie Villanueva rocked 31?

Default Re: What is origin of your Insidehoops screenname?

I wanted something unique and the best way to stay that way is to make up something.

I use to use the name tophoril_raz for the longest time, to the point that my wife and her family prefer to call me Raz over my real name. We live in interesting times in the information age.

Meticode is not a word. Maybe you mean metacode/data.

Anyway, 03-04 Piston.

I think it's a portmanteau between Meticulous and Code.

It was my Facebook name, I just randomly came up with "Oprah's Uterus" one day, and a few months later I changed the first name to Goliath. Not sure why.

I guess, but there's already a word for that; metadata/metatacode.

Metadata/metacode don't have anything to do with "meticulous"
"meta-" derives from the Greek word for "beyond" in those cases

Edit - unless you mean that he actually thought Metacode as his username and then misspelled it... in which case i am completely wrong, lol
