Well I was born and raised here in the UK, got heavily into gaming when I was about 8 and my grandparents bought me a Spectrum.
I live with my brother Peter, and I used to work in insurance (my second best job ever) until I finally got into my dream job of web design (my best job ever).
Common nicknames would be Mikey, Mouse, Semi Pro Lurker, and other slightly more offensive ones. Those are the ones reserved by the girls I make a pass to. I guess it's their way of saying they'd love to.
