Default cool pc username?

im from canada and my initials are k.d so would "CanadianK/D" or "CanadianKD" be a cool username? i was also thinking of "kurtrodez" which is a mix of my full name. or would computernoob29 be cooler as some people have said to me on other forums

your question leads me to feel that you should stick with your HWC handle.

Username should be something specific to you not something voted on or decided by the interwebs ;)

OK. Am I the only one who just had a flashback to the movie Hackers? "Man, I'm nobody unless I have a handle!"

KD reminds me of KD Lang so I wouldn't go with that... Well, unless you're into sexually ambiguous country singers that remind one of Roy Orbison. That being said, as others have mentioned, a name is something that shoud be individual to you. I did the mixed name thing once but that can get you into trouble at times... Long story.

Btw, I too have found that the most dangerous online gamers are guys with names like FluffyBunny whereas the worst always have names like Killer.

Not sure if trolling but going on a computer forum to ask this means either you are 10 years old or just wanting to have fun with people or lack any imagination whatsoever.
