    Well, I played a little NHL 2013 (or so) primarily as a goalie online as well.
    I had no idea DX had a comp scene.

    BF1942 was the shit. I wish that they would re-make that game with the newest engines, because... damn, that would be dope.

    My parents called me this since Day 1.

    Bonus: people who I first email with for work often think I'm either a woman, or a black male (thanks, Pulp Fiction).

    There's only a handful of people in my life that don't call me Dunny. It's been this way since early grade school. My last name is Dunlop, so it's just the logical hockey short-form I suppose. Depending on what rural western Ontario town/village you are in I could also be known as Tub Pee, Lunchbox or Mr. Baseball.

    The best thing about my job where I travel all over the country is that nobody calls me Dunny. It's refreshing.

    I always think you're a science fiction writer from the early 1900's.

    It was disabled when the forum was upgraded, yeah.

    I'd need to install it again to re-enable and have to double-check that it's supported.

    Provolone- because I am Italian and I like provolone cheese. When I went to Italy one year we brought back 2 chunks of provolone cheese and I though the TSA would take it away but they didn't. That was some good provolone straight from the motherland. NYR for obvious reasons and 35 cause Richter goal-tended our way to win the cup in 94' ONE OF THE CORE FOUR LEGENDS

    Reg is another nickname I had in Junior for obvious reasons... But no, it's just Ryan.

    What's the Etymology of Your Handle/Forum Name?

    Well I'm not that famous here but whatever. Chasm is a Black Metal Song from a Band called Covenant.
    I needed a new nick since my old was mainly used for RPGs and I was about to become an eSport legend in TacOps - a shooter.
    My real nick is Judgetaine which I created around the Time playing Ultima 7 - Serpent Isle. Anyone?
    Well guess which movie was around that time and I added something to make it sound fancy.
    Cheers

    Formerly known as Vodka Drunkenski, character from Mike Tyson's Punchout and I like vodka. I changed back to Missing Teeth because of superstition. The Rangers made the conference finals against the Devils when I had it last so I changed it back last year and they ended up in the Finals.

    Was Puck Head on the ESPN fantasy and hockey boards back in the 90's.

    Used it on the old, old Ranger board when I signed up in 2000, and just stuck with it

    When i first started using the internet way, i couldn't think of a name to use, so i combined keith and mike (my middle name) and ended up with Keirik. It's fairly unique I suppose. For the most part, wherever i've signed up for in life, Keirik has never been taken except the one time on PSN where i forgot my credentials and signed up for it a second time adding an O for my last name lol
