      OK, so something I saw not too long ago gave me an idea for this thread! :) I'm not weird just curious :tongue: :p :p :-p :-P

      Have you ever googled yourself? I don't mean by your full name but say example by your nickname or username?

      I just did it upon thinking of this idea and it's quite amazing what you find :) some of the websites I came across brought back a lot of memories and reminded me of websites I had forgotten about :D

      Yeah. I think it's called "egosearch" haha.

      I do it to find links and images I've lost.

      I've only ever did my full name, as I am an Actor and my pictures show up everywhere. Believe it or not even my Myspace account still shows up.
