 One  of  the  suggestions  for  a  name  to  be  used  in  chat  sessions  was  to  keep  it  short,  so  created  an  e-id  when  net  was  making  its  entry  into  India...since  then  been  using  this  almost  always.
 
 Im  a  Linux  fan,  and  hence  the  avatar....

 Very  Interesting  thread.
 
 Username:  Seetharam  (Thats  my  first  name,  so  pretty  simple  there)
 
 Avatar:  After  a  long  break  from  this  hobby  when  i  wanted  to  get  back  into  it,  i  wanted  to  start  with  Discus,  hence  i  started  my  research  and  came  across  this  picture  which  captivated  me  and  this  was  about  the  same  time  i  bumped  into  IAH,  hence  used  this  picture  as  Avatar.
 
 In  IAH  i  stumbled  upon  Nature  Aquariums,  and  then  i  started  my  journey  into  planted  tanks  ....  Discus  is  still  something  which  i  have  not  kept   Smile   .....  well  ....  looks  like  i  need  to  change  my  Avatar  eh!   Chuckle

 My  Official  LAN  ID  in  Hewitt  was  T2CHATTO.  And  I  gave  a  real  hard  time  to  my  colleagues  with  my  Full  Name  (Tirthankar  Chattopadhyay)  pronunciatiation.   ROFL  So  they  started  calling  me  by  my  LAN  ID.  Mad  Even  after  that,  when  I  moved  to  a  new  company,  couple  of  them  came  along  with  me  and  make  this  name  popular  again.  
 
 The  avatar  is  showing  my  daughter  (Putu),  holding  my  hand.   Smile

 Interesting  thread  !
 I  always  wondered  abt  some  IDs  !
 
 My  id  is  no  rocket  science  !  Just  my  name,  my  initials  and  my  last  name  Smile
 Niether  is  my  avtaar.
 When  I  read  abt  all  the  explainations  given  by  all  you  people,  I  wonder  I  am  too  laid  back  to  put  so  much  of  thought  in  choosing  ids  and  avtaar  :)
 
 Guess  I  am  ageing  !

 Rahul  :  
 
 I  have  a  snide  feeling  you  saw  a  recent  South  Park  episode.
 
 
 My  Id  is  not  too  confusing  I  guess.  I  love  cats.  Whatever  size  they  come  in  and  I  believe  the  Tiger  Shovelnose  is  one  of  the  most  amazing  fish  to  watch  during  feeding  time.
 
 As  for  my  signature,  Im  a  big  fan  of  surreal  humour  and  this  line  came  from  who  I  believe  is  the  greatest  stand  up  comedian  ever  -  Mitch  Hedberg.
