I often wonder this. So I might as well share it with you all. Would people on this board like me better as 'Jimbee', instead of Jim B?

It is probably too late to change it on this message board. Or I don't feel like doing it just now anyways.

I joined this message board, around 20 years ago. (The date given on my account is inaccurate, because they had to reset it once.) And 'Jim B' is all I could come up with at the moment. I was very new to the internet too, you have to realize.

'Jimbee' is what I usually use on other message boards. It is an interesting name. I think it means something in another language too, which also adds to the mystery, I think.

Also, concerning Jim B., I was surprised to learn there once was another member, apparently named "JimB". He apparently left a long time ago. And I guess the space between the 'm' and the 'B' is why my name didn't clash with his.

Also, I have to tell you, 'Jimbee' is a common name. So if you encounter it on the internet, don't assume automatically it is me. Look for the IP signature first, I guess.

Also, I should tell you, I once considered the username 'Jimbo'. But kids used to use the term to tease me in high school. So it kind of has bad memories for me.

What do the rest of you think?
