If you have a new username...
« on: April 10, 2007, 06:31:58 AM »
I thought it would be helpful to have a thread for those who have a new username now to introduce who they were formerly known as at the old GMG, so we can keep track of who's who. (Unless you wish to remain anonymous...) ;)

As for myself, I was "gab1279" at the old forum, those were my initials, and my new username is my real first name.

Handy, because now I don't have to sign my posts anymore!  :D

What's the significance of 1279?

Clearly, D Minor, that is the year when the Estonian town of Haapsalu was founded!

Karl, it's far from clear.

I have it on good authority that Greta's use of 1279 relates to the founding of the stone Chapel at Dethick, dedicated to St. John and founded in 1279 by Geffrey Dethick and Thomas Prior of Felley, in Nottinghamshire.1

Oh no! I've incited sneaky PMs!

It's actually nothing so interesting - I was born in December, in the year 1979. ;)

Geez, I thought 1279 was the birth year!  ;D Now I don't have to treat you with the kind of courtesy I usually offer elderly members!



Me, I have always been SpringRite. (I was SpringLeft from about two days, after which I sprung right back!)

I think this thread is an excellent idea, I hope some if the newly renamed will come on down and tell us about themselves.

Mine's very obvious and is just for the sake of expediency - Holden Fourth has become just plain Holden!

Mine is still admin, from the Latin adminius, meaning "he who notices his server is down 12 hours after it happens".

May I continue to call you Bogey, Bill?

While we are on the subject of Bill, might i ask if the caption under your avatr applies to the man in the photo, or to you-or both?
