it's really lame, it was because of the time when STE at SFMM was new, kind of a fit of self irony
sometimes I don't like it anymore, but on the other hand, it's kind of a classic, so why not
- d'uh -

I sometimes wondered if there is a way to change one's nick without loosing all your personal history etc.

airtime for everyone

MidwavePC's avatar 'Mid' is the first half of my last name

'Wave' is short for Shortwave Radio, of which I was a user in the 1980s and 1990s

'PC' is for my extra job of repairing & building computer systems and websites

...I was 'midwave', but that's a long story on how I tried to change my email, but never got a confirmation email...somewhere 'midwave' is in Coasterbuzz limbo....

I've been using the nickname 'midwave' since 1997, and other similar variations

coasterqueenTRN's avatar 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. ;)

It's one of my favorite rides. (NOT the SFMM ride though).

Acoustic Viscosity's avatar 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.

Robocoaster's avatar 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***
