  • A few yrs back on the "other forum" there was a big dust-up and a somewhat celebity cook chimed in on someones opinion, which wasn't wrong. He was WAY out of line and I mentioned that I'd doubt BGE would be happy with his comments since he also represented them. His response and explanation could not have been more backwards and a$inine. At the time you could sign on under temp names as many did when things hit the fan. I signed on to his reply as Imstilllaughingatyourresponse and he stopped. So I shortened it to use on this forum.

    This is a 20 year old handle that has seen a few forums and IM systems in it's day.

    I am not very creative so use my profession and first name . Have used it on fishing websites (used to tournament fish) and on Gaelic speaking websites. Truthfully, I don't want to have to remember more than one, need the memory space for other things!
  • R2Egg2QR2Egg2Q Posts: 1,652

    At the time I came up with that handle I had a R2-D2 cooler, 2 Eggs (XL & Small), and a desire to produce some BBQ.

    Last year I was lucky to win the Mini at an Eggfest but I'm not changing my handle now.

    Graduated from Iowa State, I'm afraid we can't be friends if you're putting hawkeye in your name.  :P

    My handle is from a band I really liked about 15 years ago.  I've been using it since, though I don't associate the name with the band anymore.
