I always used ICF, simply because they are my initials.

I would often screw up and accidentally put ICE, and I hated the fact that so many games would give you the chance to go back and edit the first two characters if you made a mistake, but get the third wrong and you were STUCK WITH IT.

My name doesnt abbreviate well (Martin - MAR/MTN/MRT they all suck) so I had to plumb for my initials MDW which still sucks :( God I hated a 3 letter limit.

At first, I used PEM, as they're my initials.

Then my mates started calling me MOY, and so that's what I used from that point on and still do today.

I used to be RYS, but then I changed them to my initials (RAW). Sounds better :)

My first arcade game I ever played was Gauntlet and I played the yellow wizard chappy. I used WIZ and it stuck.

Then, when I was a bit older playing Wizball on the C64 (greatest 8 bit game ever!) I used to play the Wizard and my mate Carl was playing the Catellite.
So the highscore was WIZ for me and CAT for him. The weird thing is he'd been using that name for arcade games for years! :shock:

So, it was fate really that we ended up playing as a wizard and a cat together in a game.

Since then the 'Rider' part has been added for reasons that I'll only go into if anyone asks (don't want to bore anyone unnecessarily).

Cheers...
