About my username.Sep 29, 2018
TL;DR - I'm sorry if my presence became a worn out laughter. It was a joke taken too far.
If you're someone who visits the 3DS side of GBAtemp, you may seen me before.
Several people have commented about my name, and a @MrLucariox asked for its backstory and so here it is:
Prior to signing up around the start of this year, I was a lurker in the 3DS discussion forum. I had no interest engaging with the community because I was (and still am) an inactive video gamer.
I started visiting this place due to my bored niece playing tablet games. She said something that made me go out and buy her a n3DSXL; that n3DSXL is now mine, and she's since gotten a n3DS.
You can read the backstory of that in my thread here:
During my sessions converting *.3ds games into installable *.cia format that would later go on to become part of my niece's 3DS library, I updated to GodMode9 v1.5.0 and encountered a bug... After losing several hours and finally figuring out where it went wrong, I was miffed enough to sign up and directly report the problem to the dev behind the app, @d0k3. Read here (my first post).
When I was thinking of a username, I wanted it to be catchy, funny, and wrong. In the event d0k3 credited whoever were the ones that found the bug, my aim was to make 3DS homebrewers do a double take feeling slightly grossed out yet chuckle all the same. In a way, my origins stems from trolling and malicious compliance, intended to be silly and harmless. :'-}
How the name came to be? Other than 3DS homebrew, one of my other hobbies was car modding with a keen interest in forced induction systems, especially turbochargers. Nowadays, I don't mess with anything auto related except for family car maintenance and repairs.
- I stuck around because I enjoyed learning the various technical aspects of the 3DS.
- I also liked examining some of the weird quirks 3DS users presented to us on the boards.
- Despite the name, I do not have a real life poop fetish. Yuck.
- If this blog turns into Q&A, we're not going there.
- When being referred shorthanded, I preferred Mr. Poo.
