I've noticed very few members here use their real names when they sign up. As a result, many usernames are rather cryptic.

Just curious.... what does your username here mean?

Mine comes from 480 volts, a common commercial & industrial voltage, and Sparky, a job-site nickname for electricians.

Just my name. Wish it was something more interesting than that.

Mine comes from being surrounded by discrete digitized information all the time... a reminder that infinite and continuous is really the way of things.

It's kinda lost its original meaning and just become my "webname" now. But originally it was because I was getting into reading things and registering on a book forum.

The neat thing is barring one guy on flickr (who got there before me - darn you!!) its fairly unique so most sites I don't have any problem registering to use it.

My IRL friends say I'm bossy. I don't know why they'd think that though...

I did a pre-emptive strike about that years ago.... registered on all the useless networking sites so my username would be 'taken'.

Well, it's pretty self-explanatory...

HEY THERE I DUNT GET IT!

I think my username has something to do with my first name, and welcoming myself. Or something.

I once owned a Volkswagen GTI 337 edition. So I am fond of 337 for some reason.
