I started using this name back in 1993 in an online MUSH game, been using it ever since for anything online related. Dunno where I got it from, I think I just made it up.

Our surname is Mundi, so the Mrs said what about The Barramundi's, we all loved it. Our RAV has the rego of BARRA 2 on it as well.

Lucy is the name of my Geomobile, and Roo is the name of my wife's Geomobile. I have used Lucy as a name on various forums for the last 8 years, but I couldn't get Lucy on Geocaching.com. Lucy is sometimes short for Lucifer! It's funny tho', cos' Lara is the name of our most-used-for-caching Geomobile (named by the kids for - yes - Lara Croft). It gets used most as it's the best set up, most capable and least likely to make us cringe when we dent/scratch/bend it.

Scrub Bull is what I go by at archery, mostly from spending alot of time bashing thought the bush looking for lost arrows.
I don't miss so often these days and I like the name.

ADAcache was invented when my wife, son and I started playing together. It is the initial from each of our names with cache on the end.<br><br>
Of course son has splintered off into Ash-Dash but still like the name. :D

Mine's a name I started using when I was made 2IC of a MUD back in my uni days. I've been using it online ever since.

It's a name my friend originally came up with as a character name for a role-playing game, and when I was hunting for a MUD character name, I asked him could use it and he said "sure!". It actually a bastardisation of the UNIX term "i-node".
