BatMud Interviews

-- Thontingh --

From Shadowjack's "Names Project" a nubmer of years ago:

What's the origin of your name?


        I found Bat in mid-94 and kept logging in as a guest for a while
because I'd never seen anything like it before.  Here in Australia we don't
have castles, halberds, golems or such.  So after a while I tried thinking of
a name and wrote down a few possibilities over a couple of days.  Then one
night I bought some beer, had three **fast** ones (I swear this is how it
happened) and somehow the word thonting appeared in my mind, so I wrote it
down.  Then a minute later I added an 'h'.  The next morning it looked ok.  All
I was reading then was network stuff and I don't know where it came from.

There is a sports player here who has a similar name and uses a bat, but he
was 18 then and unknown outside his state. Tough luck for me I guess. 

Now I'm working on Cobol Y2k remediation and if I had to think of a name, it
would probably be Wsyy, just to keep track of everything.

So there you go, it was ordinary but thats how it happened. Thanks for all
the work ppl, I really enjoy this game and will keep on until my next gf, or
I reach 1 gig of experience.
