"allocinit" is a combination of what's used to instantiate an object into memory in objective-c. I work as an iOS programmer, and so we use something like:

NSString *sparkPeople = [[NSString alloc] init];

I started a hiking program for my son's cub scout pack. Honestly I started it for my own need to get out there and do a little exercise but of course it is good for the boys.

I figure by the time my youngest son is through scouts I will have been leading a pack/troop for eighteen years. I've never been committed to anything (except my wife) that long.

Thus, the ScoutHiker.

The team I Mtn. Bike race with is called the Pack O' Wheezels. In the team I am known as "The Wheezel." I added the "O" at the end due to a recent joke my friend told me that stated when you add an "O" at the end of anything, it makes it more masculine.

Mine is pretty much completely random. I was signing up for spark people and couldn't think of a name. For some reason I must have had C.B. lingo burried in my brain and it came out..."10-4 Good Buddy". I don't even own a C.B.

I work for the Federal Government. I figured there was probably a fed girl somewhere in the network, so I just picked some random number with it, No. 4.

i hated all the numbers you had to use on your name when signing into aol, so i wanted a name that was unique, my OWN name was a little too unique, so i used the last name of my great gandfathers homelan (lithuania) best basketball player, Arvydas Sabonis

5/14/10 12:17 P

My son called me that after watching the movie Big Daddy. When I tried to create and account for online gaming with my PS3, the normal spelling of scuba was taken, so I added an "h" along with the numbers 69 at the end for the year I was born. So I often hear "damn you ScubahSteve" lol

I get asked about mine all the time and it really started when I started playing online video games years ago. The name is a character from the stargate sg-1 series and I just liked the way it sounded and it has just stuck since then. Plus I hate having to memorize a bunch of different logins for all the different message boards I go to.

Haha, I found out that I misspelled my username all these years (11 years) but have become so attached to it, I decide to just use it. It's supposed to be Dahak, which is based off a fictional mythological character.

You can change your user name. On your "Start" page there is a link for "Account / Email Preferences". Click that. You can change your UID and email address.

It's my name I use for online poker. When I first registered there, the first 5-10 names I made up came back as "We're sorry, that name is already taken." So I just typed in Lumpy ears figuring nobody would have used that one yet.

5/2/10 10:28 P

Let's see. . . the story behind my name is that I am stupid! When I joined this family I had no idea what is was and what it would be like. I wish I could change my name now, but not a big deal.

Just to let you know though, RBaker is obviously my name ( Richard Baker ) and 22 is my favorite NFL player of all time's number ( Emmett Smith )!!!

From my days in the Army 1980-1984.

RGR = Ranger
JOE = My first name
175 = 1st Battalion (Ranger) 75th Infantry Airborne.

This was back when there were only 2 Ranger battalions before the creation of the 75th Ranger Regiment. Yes I have my tab if your curious, class 6-81.

Now I am just a FOG to guys in Batt now (Fat Old Guy).

Mine pretty much explains

I sit behind a desk all day everyday. I used to be working 6-7 days a week and between 10-16 hours a day. That is what was going on when I signed up, hence the name.

Since then, I have started working a regular 40 hours a week and am ok with working again. Although, I would still like to find a way to stay home and get paid!!!

I'm Big, I'm Bad, I'm Ed

Big is true I'm 6'4" 210 is the least I can weigh.

Bad as in Good, this came from my Athlinks nickname when I was running well.

As I'm generally kind and supportive, I've been told that I'm too Nice to be Bad, but BigNiceEd didn't have the same ring.

Some people have some interesting user names. Some don't. LOL!

My story is pretty simple. I brew beer. Or maybe I should say I used to, since I haven't done it in about 5 years. Although I haven't hung up my brew pot yet, other things have taken priority. I would still love to whip up a big hoppy batch of goodness. Maybe this year. Maybe not.

How about you? What's the story behind your user name?
