Okay Okay! the Panda was a nickname from WW Vietnam, The Panda Bear actually, it degenerated to two nicknames "Panda" and "Bear" about 75% "Bear" since I'm so small and all. Step a few years forward and I had a e-mail as firstname.lastname@example.org, quite awhile back when you could get your own name and initial. As usual I got tired of them and left for a local ISP that folded (No not that kind of folding! they went broke!) Anyways back to AOL as there wasn't a lot to choose from. Low and behold I could not get my original addy! and so I went to try some thing else and couldn't even use the nic with a number, so I used the nic, letter and number. It was PandaZ1, but I quit them twice more and started using PandaZ3 most everywhere even when I left them again. Finally getting a good ISP.....Bump
Very interesting. Thanks for telling the tale. I was lucky, in that I am in a small town, and the local ISP is not overloaded, so I was able to get e-mail addresses in whatever I wanted, including just my name. Then I changed to DSLExtreme.com and forget it! Ended up with a collection of letters signifying the first names of me, my wife, my two kids, and my dog.....
99% of lawyers are giving the rest a bad name!
