I have seen some interesting screen names/userID and was
just wondering what was the tought/meaning behind the name. I know some of them are personal names in short form but what do the rest represent.
I will start:
DRMCMTR: DReaM CoMe TRue. This is my personal plate on my car.
Spider Elliott was a fictional character in Judith Krantz's 1978 book "Scruples." I had this e-mail account since '01, so I just used it when I started playing with my GPS.
A = Alpha, Ophiuchus the constellation Ophiuchus. My son had a star named after me in the constellation Ophiuchus as a Christmas present. The brightest star in a constellation is traditionally the alpha star and I'm so bright my mother called me sun... (or was it son?) At any rate when I tried to use Ophiuchus as a name for my isp it was taken so I chose the brightest star in said constellation...
Edit and if you think aophiuchus is bad, try alphaophiuchus....

When I found POI Factory and signed up I had just gotten my first tracking-type gps. I got back into the woods hiking all over in my area to get in shape (after too many years of inactivity).
Anyway, I just like to hike out there with no distractions except what Mother Nature puts around me (no cell phone, mp3, etc.) so thought Zen-Hiker sounded good for this site!

Double-Tap, after the first round is fired, the trigger is quickly pulled again as the muzzle drops down out of recoil. Ideally, both rounds should strike anywhere within the center of the target, within a tenth of a second.
I prefer Double-Tap head shots, very effective for stopping a dangerous target.

Means nothing, but some people believe I'm in the cell phone business. When I once needed a new screen name, I happened to notice that on the speed dial of the kitchen phone, the first entry was "cell" for speedy access for calling my cell phone whereas the second was the dialer for the business "merchant" visa/master-card account for customers. Ergo cellmerch !
