I've always wondered what inspired the usernames on A.net.
Why did you choose your username? Please tell the story of your username!
My username, SmithAir747, came from my love for 747 classics and the secret dream I have to own my own carrier, SmithAirways. I already have custom-built 2 747-100 models with the special, Celtic-inspired livery of the airline, and I'm now working on a 1:144 Airbus A380 in such a scheme. My username would have been SmithAirways747, but there was not enough space in the form for the full name.
I bet all of you have an interesting story behind your username!

I've been called Moose forever (my father has been called Moose forever before that, from our last name, not because we're especially big guys!) I flew KC-135s in the USAF, hence Moose135. I've used it for years as an e-mail address (Juno), screen name, and other various uses.
Maybe not the most interesting story, but it works for me. }

Mine was inspired by my lack of imagination. Just my First initial,middle initial, and first two letters of my last name. The "00" was from when I graduated high school. I've been using this as an AIM screenname for a long time now.

I was in Navy Air and my first assignment was to An A-6 intruder outfit an NAS Oceana in Virginia. I was assigned to the Line Div. and became a Plane Captain( Navy terminology for Crew Chief). I did this for 2 1/2 years and went to some really neat places. Except for some jerky NCO's, I really loved the work too. Hence, the "handle".A-6' will always have a special place with me because I served a WestaPac with this outfit and had one hell of a time. Look at my tag line at the bottom of the post.

While working as a webmaster, my manager had a dog named Cozmo. I inhereted the laptop he was using and I used the default username, theCoz. it just stuck from there on out, but to be honest I am getting a little bored with it.
