I got retsgorf from when I was a little kid. I had a toy frog. I was going to name it Frogster, but I thought that was already used to much so I turned it around to retsgorF. After that, I have used that name for several other things. 297 is just a number I came up with. Also, it is pronounced the normal way you would read the word.
EDIT: @chrisname Yes, we did. I asked it.
EDIT 2: It is here: http://www.cplusplus.com/forum/lounge/109594/
It is part of my domain name. How did I come up with it for my domain name? Well I like Dragons and so does everyone else judging by all the Dragon related domain names that are any good had already been taken. The next best thing was Wolves. One of my favorites are the Canadian timber wolf, a subspecies of the Gray Wolf. Gray Wolf sounded good but I wanted it spelt correctly. ;0)
My ultimate naming has gone through a lot of iterations in the 17 years I've been programming. When I started in 1995/96 I simply went by vgdesigner on one site. Then after player Steel Harbinger I started calling myself HarbingerX that I built off the Harbinger meaning the bringer and x referring to the mathematical meaning of X being the unknown number in an equation; HarbingerX (bringer of the unknown) because of my interest in game programming. Then a few years later in 2002 or 2003 I became BountyHunterX (a play off Mega Man X being a maverick hunter (basically a bounty hunter in its own way)). Then a few years ago I decided I didn't want HarbingerX or BountyHunterX to be my nick that would possibly become recognized for me. So I incorporated my love of mythology, ghosts, and supernatural while keeping an aspect of BountyHunterX and became BHXSpecter due to specter meaning ghost. Some get technical and bring up the different spelling but I like Specter instead of Spectre. There is one more thing to say, BHXSpecter is actually only part of my full programming persona. As I said, I love supernatural and mythology so while I'm BHXSpecter everywhere, my full persona or nick is BHXSpecter Phoenix. I actually dropped off the BHX on the Allegro.cc site and was just Specter Phoenix on there. So there you go, mine means nothing to others, but something to me...and is a mouth full when you look at it BountyHunterX Specter Phoenix (guess everyone should be glad I only go by BHXSpecter). :P
