    Out of curiosity, what made everyone choose there particular handle or screen name, and inspiration thereof?

    To start the ball rolling; mine was inspired by a particularly fast version of thrash/grind heavy metal, pioneered by a Christian Aussie band called,, yes,, Cybergrind :) and I just loved the sound of "Cybergrinder" ;)

    Revell-Fan, mainly self-explanatory: I am a BIG fan of Revell / Monogram which issued the first model kits of the classic "Battlestar Galactica" and "Buck Rogers"! :)

    An old friend (many years ago) use to call me Raven (because I was her "voice of conscience and reason").
    Once the internet (and open forum chat sites) came out, I would use Raven as my screen name. After (about) a year or so, (it seamed that) everyone was using Raven as their Screen name. So I changed the spelling to Rhaven and added Blaack as well (because I would go to SCI-FI fantasy conventions and went by Rhaven Blaack there as well.)

    No, I tried to find a good picture of my former McLaren. The picture is very close, mine was Atlantic Blue, with blue interior and a black top (one of 25 built with this combination). My car had the gold wheels. And to answer your question, it had all of the power that Ford gave it, no more; but it handled way, way better. There has been a picture of my former McLaren on Wikipedia:

    Valen is Valen, always in thought. He was the One that was. He feels somewhat duped by the Vorlons, but zathros believes he will get over it! :)

    I loved Babylon 5! Brings back memories, and I did miss Sinclair as Commander. I should find my dvds and rewatch the series.

    My screen name is my from my name. First initial with an _ seperating my last name.
