Kind of a long story on that name. I used to be heavy into BBS's back in the 80's. I was always a Batman fan so my handle was, of course, Batman.
Once the Michael Keaton movie came out though, everybody and their brother was Batman. So I tried to come up with something that was unique that no one could possibly copy by accident. I liked the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic (before it really got popular and turned into a cartoon and movies) so I tried to come up with a silly name like that. I eventually hit on "Interplanetary Electric Potato."
Later I just shortened it to ElectricPotato.
I wanted to register electricpotato.com but I guess even with a goofy name like that , someone else is bound to think of it. It's some kind of porn site.
Anyways - I used to be very active on the previous iteration of this forum a few years ago - (siriusfan.com - was that the name?). I was probably "Seismo" back then or maybe "SeismoJones."
But once that site went down the tubes and the user based moved to DRC, I kind of lost interest in keeping up with the forums. So I've been around a while - just don't participate much anymore.
Hopefully the Windows Phones take off. I really like it so far but the lack of apps is a little frustrating.
Besides the SiriusXM app, Pandora isn't available yet - it's coming 2013.
One app that I used a lot on my iPhone was PlugPlayer. It allowed me to easily stream my music off of my home NAS. So far there isn't an alternative quite as nice. But I think I'm gonna stick with the Windows Phone. I'm digging it.
