Im a gamer. Tald was from a RPG game (name was Tald the wise) and then I started playing these first person shooters and died all the time. So I changed it to Tald the dead, since I was always the first to die in the games. I keep the name with other forums so I dont get confused with login. Some seem to think the name is negative or implying some interest in death. Nope just a d00d who likes to play some games after work.

I just want to point out that my name is NOT making any reference to alcohol or any other mindaltering substance other than blacksmithing.
First time I spent the day in my friend's shop, I was a bit like a kid in a candy store. At the end of the day my head was spinning with all sorts of ideas, and I was still trying to digest everything he'd taught/shown me that day. You could almost say it was a bit of a high.
I can pretty much say that I was hooked from that day forward. I was "hammered".

Trouble :)

I was wondering if that was you Darlin. Good to see you here with the other Ferrets. ;)

Frosty AKA Frostig on a SCA list though I'm not a Scadian.

Last name's Frost, first name isn't Jack, my folks weren't into hanging more on my neck than I was going to get as it was so they named me Jerry instead of getting cute. Thanks Parental Units!

I call my semi-pro, mostly hobby operation The FrostWorks. Guys at work told me it should have a "?" instead of a "." but what do they know. I'm retired, they're still working.

Shop motto is: "Stuff Done With Metal"

E-mail signoff is:

If it ain't forged
it ain't real.
Wrought iron is.
The FrostWorks

Meadow Lakes, AK.

And that's mine.

Aeneas is my SCA persona name.
My real name is Sam Falzone - unfortunately Sam is such a common name that I always had a HUGE problem making up login names that I could remember. Funny enough, I've never had a problem registering Aeneas when I sign up on a new list or such (...go figure...). So that's what I use it, though I've taken to signing posts as Sam.
Oakhammer Craftings and Oakhammer Forge are also taken from my SCA persona name - I like the sound of it.

Dangaard is a cross between my personal name and the name of a monster in a fantasy card game I played once. Sjongaard was the name of the card I liked the name used to use it, but then I realized that you could whack off "sjon" (which some people cant pronounce and add Dan. Daniel here, always preferred Dan though). the card was of a dwarf made of stone, really tough, (not meaning to brag) kinda like me.

Dangaard is actually used by other people I came to find out, pissed me off a little actually. My tailor made name and somebody else has it! meh got over it though.
