20+ years in the RCN, "Grumpy Popeye" seemed appropriate  ;)

Mine was taken from the movie and series Alien Nation.
It is a modified spelling of Tenctonese.

I always thought it was funny in old TV shows and movies from the 1980s or so when they made some cheap looking robotic device seem more advanced just by giving it a name in the following format: <insert word / name> + "tron" + number in the hundreds or thousands.  The underscore in my handle comes from old computer file name syntax where blank spaces between characters weren't allowed.

I chose the word "Gadget" because I've always loved electronics and tinkering with them.  So I went with that and used the naming formula and...*PRESTO*..."Gadgetron_3000"!

Sounds so advanced!!  ;)

Rather boring really how mine came about.

I am in the worldwide 501st costuming group and my ID is TK6598 (just a random series of numbers I chose) and as my name is Iain so we now have TK Iain.
