It has been a while since the first post, but I assure you, I haven’t been idle. In fact, I have prepared a series of posts, which will start appearing on this site soon. The current plan is to post new articles on Saturdays, Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, so at that rate it would take over two weeks to post the whole series.
I found it really difficult to pick a name for the blog. In the end, I just chose to try to be a bit funny & witty and not focus too much on what the content is going to be. I picked the Tiga nickname on IRC (Internet Relay Chat) in 1993 and since then have also used it among certain groups of friends, on BatMUD and World of Warcraft and other games. There’s no connection with the Canadian DJ. I just needed a nickname really quickly and it was the brand name of a windsurfing board I had at the time, so I went with that. I think the windsurfing brand got it from the name of an island in New Caledonia. I kind of like what the urban dictionary says about it.
Then there’s the song of course… I watched the video on Youtube and oh boy did it look dated now. The song is still pretty cool though and a definite classic.
Anyway, welcome to the blog…we’ll start with the series on putting together a cosplay costume, but there’s no telling where this will lead. Let’s think of this as an adventure of some sort…
