Lol...mines kinda funny. I dont know if jeezoflip is from something already... BUT

One time, in my History class back in Middle School, we had this long term sub. He was cool. But anyway, we use to mess around in his class all the time. So one day he asked my friend a question, and i forget what it was or what my friend said back, but it was some smart ass answer. So, my teacher took his hand and hit his forehead and was like "O JEEZOLIP!" and i thought it sounded funny as hell, so i use it as my internet alias for like everything.

Eh, yeah. I had a freakin horrible time coming up with usernames back when i first started using teh interwebs.

This one came into existence about two years ago, in eighth grade math. (yes, i'm 15. deal with it.) One of my friends has a habit of saying crazy stuff. Funny, but crazy. So at that time his "crazy" thing was twisting words into weird contortions. So he's like "hey erbic!". Yeah. It's my name with a B in the middle. It stuck... too well. It's been two years and I can't get anyone to call me Eric anymore. :D

So, yeah. This became the name i use on all teh interwebs-related stuff. Unless five letters is too short, in which case it's xErBiC.

When I first started joining online communities, they were all Mac Emulation related. Not Mac Emulation like SheepShaver, Aqua-Emulation like Flyakite OSX, which basically means making PC's look like a Mac. My name is Ari, and I wanted Ari combined with Mac OS X, so I called myselft AriX. I eventually decided to make an Aqua-Emulation website. I called it "WinX", because it combined Windows and Mac OS X. After that, I realized that it matched my name, so I made it. It eventually merged with another site about the same thing. It's now called Aqua-Gero. My old name before AriX was ariw2002net. I got ariw from my name and last initial, i made it in 2002, and i had an aol account called ariw2002. I was registering for a Netscape account, and didn't know it was the same thing, so I decided to make ariw2002@netscape.net. Of course, it was already taken, by me, so it gave me username suggestions and one of them was ariw2002net, which I took. I used to change them every year though, my first AOL account was ariw2001, then ariw2002, then ariw2002net (at netscape), then ariw2003 and ariw2003net (At netscape)

Ah well JMufla came about on a School Trip to Tunisia in 1999...

It all started with being tired, or at least looking tired... and my apparent similarity with an italian sheep called "il Muflone" or a "Mufla"... Don't ask... It stuck... The J was added because it is the first letter of my name... hence JMufla

mine is because of the mortal kombat armageddon character mocap

this guy has nothing to do with the mk story ... it just the guy who has several sensores and a special costume and makes kicks and stuff like that in order to let the pc record his moves :)

but the expression is truly general . so everyone making the moves in a game or animated movie is a mocap. but in mk you can play him as well :D

here is a pic of a mocap
