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.

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

Maybe. I liked Villanueva as a player to, that would make sense.

Randy

Favorite musician of all time. I use some variation of this for most of my usernames. The "3" came when I posted on mlb message board and got banned as "RandyRhoadsRules". For some reason, I came back as RandyRhoadsRules3 instead of using a "2" (might have hit wrong key lol) and I still use it.

Jamal is my occasional nickname among friends. I got it because I play bball and listen mostly rap music and it's similar to my original (Serbian) nickname. Number 99 represents something like my jersey number, because only Jamal isn't free on most boards and I got many 9's in my birthdate.
