Lady Fitzgerald was my stage name back when I used to attend and work Renaissance Festivals.

It's based on my gamertag, typhoon970, which is actually a typo.  I meant for it to be typhoon870, a reference to Typhoon Tip's record-low atmospheric pressure reading of 870 millibars.  (I'm a bigger weather nerd than I am a tech nerd.)  Of course, I came up with it when figuring out a Minecraft username several years ago, but then typed it as typhoon970 and then hit submit.  This was before the days of changing your Minecraft username, so I just rolled with it.  Now, I use it for all of my gaming stuff.  Since computers aren't inherently used for gaming, I figured I needed to come up with something different.  So, I did "Techstorm970."  "Tech" because, um, tech...and "storm970" as a reference to my gamertag.  :D 

I have a G7 and it's DELLicious!!!

Phonetic version of "razor" in my language. Becaue "Razor" has been taken everywhere already. And someone I used to play with in a clan jokingly wrote it this way one time, and I kept it. What's most funny is that "J" in it and how it trips Americans and Brits when they try pronouncing it XD

A buddy of mine actually chose mine 'BisquTz' he created my xbox account whilst I was at school back in the day. not quite sure where he got it from and why the random capital T in the middle, but I like it, My IRL nickname Is Bozzy, that was given to me by a random guy at school and it kinda just stuck with me for nearly 10 years

To everyone's surprise, mine doesn't come from Chuck Norris. I really liked how Commodore Norrington looked in PoTC in his blue uniform, so I changed the title to Prince and shorted Norrington to Norris. I still like blue uniforms. Just not the police ones.

IRL some people call me Piotr, somtimes even Piotr Andrevic, which all comes from the russian pronounciation of Peter. The Anrevic part is because my dads name is Andrej, or Andreas for germans / Andrew for the english. its a russian thing to have the fathers name as a middle name. the need for nicknames for me came from us having too many peters in the family and circle of friends so people started going more specific to differentiate us.


Online i now go by Clueless or ClulessGenius pretty much everywhere (really embarrased about the nicknames i chose in the past before that). why that name idk i just sat there one day thinking of what to call the account. i was trying to create a character that could maybe become a brand later for case mods and other weird tinker projects. then this girl i knew called me "some sort of unnaturally gifted genius" (to be fair she meant that as an insult on how im playing with people and manipulating them or some shit) and i thought since i have all these outlandish project ideas but often lack the know-how to execute them properly CluelessGenius might fit and sounded catchy enough to become a brand name.

In 6th grade my friends were obsessed with egg names, so they named me Gegger, and it stuck. My old Minecraft gamertag thing was DaCrazyDanish, from a MinecraftEdu class I taught at, and before that, I ate a Danish pastry thing (also because my friend was also teaching, her tag was DaLonelyDonut).

My rig is so crappy it's irrelevant to put here. Though my AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ from like 2006 has a higher clock speed(2.6GHz) and the same core count than my Intel Celeron-2955U 1.4GHz right now.

Pixel Polygon, actually. I'm a pixel pusher (pixel artist old school), 2D/3D game artist, graphic designer web and print, 3D modeler. Kind of Jack of all trades for making graphics (and actually dumping some html and css as part of the work). A bit why in YT I have the nickname of 3polygons, in reference to my old jobs as a 3D modeler/animator. Gotta add some pic for the avatar, I just landed here, lol.

Well, I spend my working days supporting my employer's IT and so that often means fighting with MacOS or Windows when something breaks or won't install in addtion to setting stuff up so it kind of made sense.


Plus my imagination is flagging at the moment.
