I am sure I answered this way back in 2001 or 2004 but I am too lazy to search so...
I have used Coasterqueen for various forums, email addresses, screen names etc. since I first appeared on the net. I guess I have been using it about 9 or 10 years now! WOW! Maybe I should copyright it. ;)
I am too lazy to change it. When I first signed on here in late 2001 "Coasterqueen" was already taken at the time. I was too tired and lazy to get creative, so I just added the "TRN" which are my initials.
Boring, I know. ;)

When I was studying mechanical engineering at Iowa State, I was talking with my buddy about using egineering jargon to come up with a "neat" name for a rock band. We combined Acoustic Velocity (speed of sound) and Viscosity to "create" Acoustic Viscosity. It gets to be a bit tedious to spell it out all the time, so AV Matt was born.
I think I might vaguely remember posting something to this effect somewhere in here at some point prior, but maybe not... ;)
At any rate, "Robocop" is among my favorite films, and rollercoasters are among my favorite things, so I simply mashed them together. I did this waaaaaay before KUKA designed a ride with the same moniker.
It is not however, connected to my actual name (Rob Bob) in any way outside of coincidence. If my real name were Pete Jones, I still would have signed up as Robocoaster.
OK-Stupid question. How do you change your screen name? I would like something different and have never figured out how to change it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. *** Edited 7/13/2007 1:51:01 AM UTC by Steve Perry***
