    I just couldn't think of anything clever, so I just went with my real name. The avatar was something I found on the web.

    with all due respect, fellow old-timer,
    but i would think twice about using my
    real name in a public forum and saying so..
    it aint safe..
    ;)

    My bro used to play GTA too much, I frequently needed a name for signing up on forums, so happened to use the main character!

    My user name came from the nickname of my golden retriever Buddy, may he RIP. My avatar was chosen by my son by mistake when
    he said I looked like the farmer from the kids movies of Shaun The Sheep.

Kinda stuck :biggrin:
