Origins of Atariboy
Ah the story of the name Atariboy, it began almost a year ago…
I used to be a member of the university dodgeball club, i designed and ran the website and was Vice chairman.
A number of the members didnt really do anything in the club and i was left picking up the pieces all the time.
Going into my final year i wasnt prepaired to run a club all by myself with all the “jocks” taking the credit for it. So i told them i was leaving because they didnt do anything. A number of friends also left with me, leaving the lazy guys to do all the work.
They didnt like this at all, and become very abusive and violent towards me, i was told:
“…and take down your crappy website Atariboy“
So i replaced the site with a huge Atari logo, and i have kept the name ever since.
The phoned me up a couple times to ask me to comeback and help them too, they didnt do anything and the club never took off and the name stuck with me for everything geeky i do.
You can see the current Dodgeball website here, lol!!
