    Being of short memory, I tend to use the same name across several forums-- don't really know where I came up with it---:wink:

    Nice GT. I've got a '74 B. Picked up three V8's years ago. Two were the Skylark motor and the third was from a Rover. Hope to cram one in some day.

    Actually easier to do than it seems, just get most of the parts for the V8 BGT-- lots of info on the net.
    back to regular programing

    lol well I guess it's an homage to a late friend of mine. He used to yell "Fuck you ya fuckin mollygrubber!!" when I did something to piss him off. Bumping his arm when he was aiming used to really get him going :rofl

    I miss that guy.

    "Strongleftleg"

    First high-performance motorcycle I bought was an 03 Husaberg FE400. Had both electric start and a left side kickstarter. Electric start was poorly designed, hardly worked. It took awhile to get used to kick starting with my left leg, but now after 3 left kicker Husabergs (03 400, 07 550, 08 550), I got it down pat. :D

    I work in Municipal Transit Bus Maintenance. I worked at one property where there was 2 of us with the same first name (Neil), so since my last name is "Waldick", they called me Wally.

    I fly airplanes for a living and come from Irish/Scottish descent. The airspeed system on an aircraft is known as the Pitot Static system ( pronounced peeto ) So Pete O Static seemed appropriate.

    "Mach Z"

    In the early days of this whole forum thing, the two favorite bikes in my stable where the '74 H2B and the '78 Z1R. Initially my user name was a mashed version of that "74H278Z1R". I know, no imagination! Anyway, H2's are also known as Mach IV's so I came up with Mach Z as still being representative of the two bikes. Bonus, if you say it like an American it sounds like "Moxie" which is cool...

    Mad Jack was a nick name given in high school that was supposed to piss me off, my buddy was nick named Nykoma for the same reason...but I didn't watch the TV show, so I didn't get the digg...?? Anyway, 9yrs later I was getting my first online e-mail and thought madjak...that was taken...madjak27 (since I was 27...), taken...so I just rounded off to madjak30...and have used it in forums ever since then...so I've been madjak30 since 1997...coming up on 15yrs of that one...YIKES!!

    Later.

    As this is my first post, I figured this thread would be the most appropriate...

    I am a lift mechanic at Whistler Blackcomb, and a 'gripforce' is a technical safety term with Doppelmayr lifts in regards to the grip mechanism that holds the chair to the haulrope (cable). I used to race Formula One online and chose Gripforce as my handle (think 'grip' and down'force'), so the name stuck, and have kept it ever since!

    I use mine to remind myself that the glass is indeed more than half full.

    I feel very fortunate and hope the same for all of you!
