Green Tank Commander Wrote:Is it at all possible to change your user name I picked "Green Tank Commander" cause the tank pilots were my favs as a kid (mostly cause green was my favorite color then). Anyway I'd thought I'd ask. No big deal if you can't.

If there is a way to change the username, that would be awesome. I would love to change my username to ZeroFlux.

I never thought anyone would ever pick a username from "Hackers" Gosh that movie sucks, but I love it. Love the soundtrack even more.

That movie needs to be remade like no tomorrow. Guess choosing that name makes you elite, ey?

"elleldee" is my general username, most everywhere.
It's the phonetic version of LLD, which is the acronym for an album, LoveLibertyDisco, by my favourite artist, newsboys.

Mine is the name of a Program I am creating, a costume i've been working on. When trying to be creative and give it a name, I realized I am no good at thinking of names that sound TRON-ish, without being "Tron", "Flynn", "Ram"... ect. and obviously those wouldn't work, so I tried disecting what the names mean and where they come from. So I did a little digging on Zuse's origins, and started looking into Computer Engineers' names.

After finding nothing, I found a list of the names on Legacy's Arena Scoreboard, and found Kurtz and Vint. I was leaning toward "KURTZ" as it's name, but I ultimatly decided to combine them. Not as clever or original as some other's i'd seen, but I wanted to be as far from existing names as possible.

Demeter is too greek...Same with Aries and Taurus. Calcutta......Really? When I think of cool TRON names, I think of names that sound technical.

Actually, that was a list of names I considered using when I was thinking about joining up.
Eventually, I decided upon EXODUS, which (in strange role-playing kind of way) I would have my program be called if I was a character in that universe .

I noticed that quite a few Tron names seem to be a bit 'short' (Tron, Ram, Clu, Sark, etc), so that's one of the reasons why I chose names like BRONX and ARIES.
Also, when it comes to topics like this (either here or elsewhere on other forums), I noticed that there were many differant reasons why people would choose that particular name for themselves.
And in keeping in theme of the Users creating the Programs in the Tron universe (most likely Encom employees using the companies's computor network), I like to image the same principle applies-Alan created Tron, whereas CLU is in fact an acronym.
Therefore, in theory, the Users can name their programs for a variety of reasons, whether it's the place they grew up in (like the BRONX), their Zodiac sign (ARIES, TAURUS), or something more exotic (like CALCUTTA).
It was this 'variations of inspiration' that I was trying to (somewhat clumsily) put across.

There's also another name I forgot to add to the list=AJAX.

A .bat file is an excutable file full of DOS commands, a script in other words.

A terminal junkie is either a herion addict on the way out, or an old school user who would rather type strings of commands at a prompt (like Dillinger, jr. did to get rid of the Marv video loop during the OS12 dog-and-pony show) than point, click, and drag.


What do you call a program who brings a disc to a light cycle battle? Derezzed.

I get excited about the design of the interior of the four wheeled ones. I just ordered some EL wire that I hope to use on my car.


MulitVMan - Glaceau Vitamin Water (Multi-V) was an item my car when my son asked to change our xbox360 account user name. If you are on, feel free to send a friend request. Beware I’m a chatty player.

Prior to that, usernames were a variation of my last name ‘Dye’. It was a good name when I played on MuDs MUSHs etc. Been a bit busy since the mid-90s mud days and it has only been in the past 2 years that I’ve ventured out to forums & mailing lists, such as this one. I made an attempt at Facebook – meh keep it.

I enjoy most things sci-fi & fantasy. My first attraction was the ‘Icewind Dale Trilogy’ then overtime growing into ‘SnowCrash’ and other similar titles (Thanks Wes, since you’ve admitted to creeping my posts on this forum). I’m fascinated by character arcs and often live vicariously through the postings of others. I’m keen to see how Alan pans out in the next movie and hope to hit ElecTRONica in the springtime weeks ahead.


I'm busy compiling...

This is the name of my "evil" Quorra (if she remained in captivity and was successfully re-purposed). I'm still trying to get her story completely fleshed (and hopefully RP'd) out LoL

The create a program function on the Disney website was my inspiration

Hopefully my hubby will finally sketch and paint my avatar/icon soon

Well, Mordecai is the name of the blue jay from "Regular Show", and I also think that Mordecai is a good name for a character from Tron.

As for the 9, it's my favorite number and the title of one of my favorite films, "9".

I came with the name LIT a few months ago, I was in school, I was the smartest one. I came up with the nickname daniel1ksc, when I got my interest into TRON i came with a nickname that sounded Tron-ish. I came up with Learning Intelligence Tool (LIT) because I was smart and was ahead of my class in learning.

My name is pretty simple compared to my other usernames.

"Stellar" is my nickname/"persona" name. "(EMA)" is my initials. ".exe" just looks cool. (YES. i know it just means "execute file".)
