Well ... I was at an outage at Fermi and Patty Apker was sitting next to me in training. She made some comment about my hair and asked what I put in it to make it look the way it looked. I answered "Alberto V05" she laughed her butt off. I guess I was a little obsessed with the doo for a decade or two there. But, the next day she and several other fems on site began to refer to me as "Hairdude" and it stuck. Go figure.

I shortened it. It was actually IncredibleHulkcomb....a play on my name. Ray Thompson hung it on me, and it's been perpetuated by The Atomic Punk.

The name "highradsnake" is rather easy to decipher. "Snake" is my nickname from my "crew" back in SW Pa. in the late 80's. The "high rad" part is from the mid to late 90's when an 18.1 senior assigned to balance of plant duties was not much more than a high radiation escort for any work group needing access to the area. I know that I'm making a generalization but I had more responsibilities as a new junior than I do now as a 3.1 senior. I understand that this is the way it is. :P

I came up with this username to make fun of the people who think overclocking will make up for user error.

I expected a lot more real names since big brother already knows all.

 ;) Well, my nick name is Squirly and I taught aerobics, hence Aerosquirl since Squirlbics and Squirlaero didn't sound to good. I do get asked if the name means the flying squirl, Nope but flying down the road with wind in my hair, watch out you road rats.  8)

Stole it from John Prine?

I took my user name from the brand that is registered to me that I use on my horses. M with a lazy J underneath. The M is the first letter of my last name and the J is the first letter of my first name.

We had 3 llamas since 1988. Only Sugar is still with us. Since my husband, Marty took the name Llama I changed mine to  Llamagramma when our grandson was born in 2001.

I've had mine so long I can barely remember..   lot's of folks never knew me by any other name, even after years working together... (A-Punk, I think you only learned my real name after you became my site coord wasn't it?)... 

but the truth is, back in the 70s i had a supervisor whose name i always misstated...   
when he asked me why, i just said he looked like a 'bob' to me...   
so he decided i looked like a 'gonzo'...  somehow it stuck..

in one instance it actually could've been useful..  in the late 90s when hunter thompson's book made a comeback, i walked into the front of pokey's computer store and asked for him.  the young gal at the front desk asked who was asking and i said 'gonzo'...   i guess she'd been reading thompson's book cuz she got a wide eyed look and asked if i was hunter thompson....    i don't know, maybe if i'd lied i could've got lucky.....

That's not true, back in '91 when Ted Maine and myself were whipping boy juniors, he says to me, "Hey, we're on (insert your real name here)'s crew".  To which I replied, "WHO?".  "Gonzo!" "OH!  Cool!" Little did I know what I was getting myself into. ;^) 

BTW, don't forget to feed the mice for my wife. :^)

Nickname from a small circle of friends at SONGS circa 1997.  I am not a cartoon super hero fan but the name has always brought back some fond memories so I went with it. 8)

Several years ago when I joined Nukeworker I couldn't decide on a nickname.  Radbitch was taken and there were a lot of 'Rad' names already in use.  My husband, who is also in Rad Protection, was looking over my shoulder as I logged in and said, "How about fluxmama?"  We both laughed hysterically and he dared me to use it.  End of story.
