I just wondered how people came up with their username.
I'll start...
I chose my username because my name is Gary and i used to drive a 2002 tdi mk4 golf so.
That's how i picked my username

Good thread!


I chose my name because thats what my friends calling me. Its Danish and it means Fat-ass Jesper. (Jesper is my name) It's a good laugh, 'cause i ain't really fat. 197cm, 82 kgs. But its a good name...!

I have a photograph in my study of a lighthouse being hit by a wave. It was taken by Jean Guichard.

This is 'Hawkwind' -- One of the 2x Kit Cars I built a few years back.





It's chassis was tubular Stainless Steel and the body was Stainless steel too...It's donor car was a 2Ltr Ford Sierra.



Spec: Recaro seats, Mountney 9" steering wheel, 2litre petrol injected, 5 speed manual, rear wheel drive, 5 spoke alloys. Really fast and exciting fun. The owners club used to go to all the kit car shows and camp over showing off hundreds of these at a show. We drove in convoy to Le Mans to watch the 24 hour race etc. The look on peoples faces as we drove by was wonderful... and kids all waved.

All wonderful adventures, but totally impractical as an everyday car.



A while later I registered on an internet dating site and met my gorgeous, now wife, Anthea. I registered my username as 'Stainless' without thinking at the time.

I discovered later that evidently a few girls avoided me as 'Stainless' sounded just a little too saucy !!! ;)

OK.. Who can work out WHY I called the car 'Hawkwind' ???????

I wish I had chose something clever as my username now


Maybe if I tell you all my name is Brian and Dan was the nickname I gave my fighter jet it might sound a bit more interesting!

Lovejimbo's a pseudonym I use for my 'brand' when I freelance, it came from the way I'd always put my name down as Love in videogame high score sheets that had character limits when I was a child and then became my web presence when I found Love was always taken as a username, so lovejimbo became my handle. I also use hatejimbo and ragejimbo depending on the format the name is needed for or my mood...

And from me too!!

Very Well Done and DON'T fall off that wagon!!

Its 29 years since I gave UP! and when someone lights UP! at certain times I do that "BIG SNIFF" that all ex smokers seem to do!
Its hard but its worth it!
