    Avatars

    OK, where Agent Orange (aka Yellow Yata, aka "The most interesting man in the world") is playing the Avatar of the week game, some of you have to explain where you got yours from. The most intriguing one is Kung Fu Jesus. Where did you get that one? What's mg in Chief stand for?

    Minuteman was my handle during the Smokey evading CB radio days of the 70's and 048 was the number of guys that had that name before me.

    Know Smileyface's story. What's yours?

    You’re asking two different questions: what our avatars mean and what our screen names mean. I tend to get bored with both and like to change avatars often because in my opinion, they get stale and it’s nice to change often.

    As for my screen name, I like to change it when I get I get a new car but that is rare. AgentOrange refers to my previous orange Corvette but now I have a red one so I’m overdue for a name change. I’m not worried about name regognition because you guys who know me, know me well. Those who don’t, well, oh well.

    My username comes from my last name: Poindexter. Interestingly enough, my wife now signs her last name "pdexta" because "Poindexter is too long".

    Avatar is my daughter, in my miata, which probably needs to be updated.

    MG are my initials. Chief is what I am (Chief Engineer). I started using it for an e-mail address years ago and just stayed with it (you know, because age and ease of recall).

    Know it well. Keep a pocket pad with me now and write things down.
