I could be dishonest and tell you my name is short for "love never fails", but instead, I'll be honest and admit that I simply used my initials.    ::)

i;m also an oakland raider fan!... 8) ... . been one since i was old enough to see sporting events on tv and recognize the difference between a football game and everything else....   :D....

but my forum name is my real middle name.. . aleshanee.. .. i was born at my grandmothers house on the navajo reservation in arizona... she not only named me but also took care of me for the first 2 years of my life.... . .. sadly i don;t rmember much of that... i wish i did...  :-... . but the earliest thing i can rmember clearly is living in the los angeles barrio with my mom .. who was also an oakland raider fan.... ...  :)

aleshanee is a native american name and means.. "she plays all the time"... i think it was something my grandmother was hoping for with me, rather than identifying a natural trait...  but it turned out to be a fitting name anyway....  .. also.. .  all the letters required to spell my first name are contained in my middle name....  not all the letters in my middle name are required but none of them have to be used twice.. . .. i don;t know if she intended that way or if it was just a coincidence...  but i always thought it was pretty kewl.. .  8)


Yours is definitely the best name and story I have seen.

Mine is a shortened reference to Bit Torrent version 2.

BitTorrent is a protocol that supports the practice of peer-to-peer file sharing and is used for distributing large amounts of data over the Internet. BitTorrent is one of the most common protocols for transferring large files and peer-to-peer networks have been estimated to collectively account for approximately 43% to 70% of all Internet traffic (depending on geographical location) as of February 2009[update].[1] In November of 2004 BitTorrent was responsible for 35% of all Internet traffic
Programmer Bram Cohen designed the protocol in April 2001 and released the first available version on July 2, 2001.[3] Currently, numerous BitTorrent clients are available for a variety of computing platforms,[4] including an official one released by Bittorrent, Inc.

As of 9 January 2012 (2012-01-09)[update], BitTorrent is utilized by 150 million active users (according to BitTorrent, Inc.). Based on this figure, the total number of monthly BitTorrent users can be estimated at more than a quarter of a billion.[5] At any given instant, BitTorrent has, on average, more active users than YouTube and Facebook combined (this refers to the number of active users at any instant and not to the total number of unique users).
We've all 'file-shared' some file(movie) using bitorrent, duh!

'prophet'  comes from ICor. 14:5  'but rather that ye prophesy'.  The most desired gift of the Spirit...to speak the Word of God.
