new & interesting places for your GPS

What does your screen name mean?

 

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

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.

aophiuchus...

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... rolleyes

Edit and if you think aophiuchus is bad, try alphaophiuchus.... shock

Screen Names

I've used A_User or A_User2000 for over 10 years as one of my screen names. I've also been known to use Justin Time, Justin Case and my all time favorite of Yu Hu (Yoo Hoo!). A_User came about when I went to register some piece of software that wanted a lot of personal data I didn't feel like providing.

The Cadfael part comes from the Ellis Peters novels of The Brother Cadfael Mysteries, an 11th century Welsh monk who, through his use of what today we would call forensic science, solved the perceived unsolvable crime.

I merely elevated him to knighthood with the Sir.

Long way from home now, huh, Alleghany? I'm from Northwest PA, myself, and still live here.

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!

ramcruzer

Sometime ago I made an investment into a PT Cruser (when they first came out) got very active in the clubs in California and here in Az. Did alot of upgrades to the sum of 30k and put a ram air hood on, so I picked ramcruzer for my forum name on their site and have used it all the time since those fun days of cruising.

Ramcruiser was also a military Tank in the war of WW2

Double Tap

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. smile Ergo cellmerch !

Been my handle for awhile...

Backlash refers to stomping on the gas in a high horsepower car. ZO6 refers to my current toy, a 2002 corvette Z06 which I frequent race tracks with. I have used this screen name since 2002 on many corvette and race forums.

My handle goes way back

I used to airbrush as a teen in the late seventies and have pulled out an airbrush every once in a while - if I ever have the time.

Working in the IT field for 20 plus years, most IT related names have all been taken, so I tried that one and it was available.

So, there you go... Not creative I know. redface
