Wow... what a great read! I just ran across this node, so I guess I'll be the latest to extend it's life

More years ago than I want to admit, a group of friends and I got *really* into a Wil Vinton animated character that used to advertize for Domino's Pizza called 'The Noid'.

So, we created monikers for ourselves that we put on the backs of T-shirts, each reflecting our hobbies... with an airbrush of The Noid on the front. All of the names ended with 'Noid'.

Me, being the Star Trek geek of the group, became TrekNoid.

Years later, we've all grown out-of-it, and that should have been the end of it... but about 13 years ago, I'm sitting at the AOL User Registration page, and it's asking me for a login that hasn't been taken yet... and after trying 50 or so things, I remember my old nickname, and give it a shot... And since then, it's just been my name in any online forum I go to.
