The Eternal Shame of Your First Online Handle

Loved this post on Good. The Eternal Shame…

Here’s my first online handle.

Handle: Beaker999

User: Me

Platform: The internal University Kent at Canterbury newsgroups (and external ones too)

Why: Oh lordy loo . . . I used to have tall bad ginger hair that made me look like Beaker from the Muppets. I also remember saying, out loud, to another person that the 999 bit was because “You’d want to call me in an emergency”. I’m probably the last person you’d want around in an emergency.

    Safe to say I got into the university in Aberystwyth, and had two offers from Newport and Wrexham…

    the mind boggles…
