My username comes from a phoeneticization of my initials, with a "Martian" stuck on for good measure because I liked Mars a lot ten years ago. My avatar is me wearing some of the hardware from my Master's project.
In a CompSci Intro class in 2001, we had to create a "company" logo for all our projects. This is where my avatar (and the Omnimaga thing) comes from. Omnimaga = Omni + Magic
My nickname is because back in 2005 I used xLIB APP for the TI-83 Plus a lot. I changed to DJ Omnimaga in 2007, twice, but Cemetech forum crashes kept resetting my nickname and I stopped bothering to get Kerm to change it again.
Swivelgames came to me back in 2004ish. Originally I was "Wizard Gale" (*facepalm*) wayyyy back when I used to play Runescape day after day and ran the Wizards and Warriors clan. Anyway, TMI, lol. I came up with the name randomly after coming up with a logo of an old Atari joystick. I did a lot of pixel art way back then and drew up a pretty basic Atari joystick as a logo for what I thought to be a game development company I was starting. I started out with WYSIWYG-game creators, like FPS Creator, and never really progressed into anything put a TI-BASIC developer and then eventually learned some PHP, as I already had a substantial amount of JS experience before 2004.
And the lack of avatar is only because my lack of graphic design skills and colorblindness prevents me from designing a satisfactory one. Another reason for no avatar (the main reason, actually) is because I'm all over the board when it comes to my hobbies and interests. There isn't really one thing that can describe or represent me... except for maybe the tongue smiley
The "Eye" part on my name comes from walleye, a type of fish I like to catch. They are commonly referred to as eyes. As for the "River" part, it comes from the fact that at the time I came up with the name, the bulk of my time fishing was spent on a river. Hence, I came up with Rivereye.
My Avatar atm is a Walleye, I think enough is said there.
my nickname is Dontar, I made it because I needed a new nickname when I joined an online guild/clan called SeeD because my first nickname was Guarddog.
I usually use an avatar based on a leopard, or I use Abel's picture from missmab.com since I like that Incubus, looks like a cookie (and from last couple of comics, he apparantly smells like a cookie too)
"rthprog" comes from my first gmail account. I wanted to try out gmail (I was using hotmail at the time), and also wanted to use it for programming-related stuff, particularly when I was still into programming for PARALLAX microcontrollers. So I combined by intials (rth) with "program", and set it up. Eventually, I fell in love with gmail and switched everything to my "rthprog" account...
Shmibs, thanks for the tutorial into the mind of shmibs. I've wondered idly about your username, since various monoalphabetic substitutions, reversals, and rearrangements don't really transform it into anything meaningful.
