I didn't know Dennis Moriarty posted on here either until Super Bee mentioned it. Knight in various forms is a user name I've used for years on various on various trucking, motorcycle and other forums over the years.I picked it because when joining a forum many years ago I had to pick a user name, I was reading a book about the knights of the round table and picked that. I was surprised it wasn't already in use.
I have actually wondered what spderyak was all about so thanks for the explanation.
Mine is not very interesting. It doesn't really mean anything. i had to come up with a name and for whatever reason i'd been thinking about old muscle cars. Later i found all sorts of meaningfulness in it but at the time it was just a spur of the moment thing.
an example of a good name i think is BronzeWailer, because BW is a red haired harp player who lives near and sometimes swims in a body of water in which the Bronze Whaler shark breeds...i think thats right about the sharks...maybe wrong...its a clever name anyway.
ive actually considered killing off the superbee id and using my real name. it can be done; you just lose the post count.
i believe Indigo used to be Jehosophat, Ted Burke was once Theo Burke i think, and Grey Owl also changed, perhaps from GreyOwlPhotoArt

Thanks for the mention and kind words Bee. Partly right about the origin. It does reference the sharks. I do do a lot of snorkelling in Oz and overseas, with and without sharks. The bronze has more to do with skin colour than hair, though. Hair used to be black, is now salt and pepper. I have a perma-tan thanks to my mother who was from Trinidad: half-Chinese, 1/4 black and 1/4 white. When my Bronze Wailers band was going we had a very dark singer from Reunion Island east of Africa and guitarist from Ireland. So i used to joke that we were dark, medium, and very light bronze. I was also trying to reference the mythical bronzed Aussie (I am naturalized) and my ambition to be wailin' on the harp. Thanks for your attention.
Jehosophat here.Yeah bummer that i had to change my moniker but one day the site wouldn't sign me in and i had forgotten my password so i just rejoined as Indigo(and lost near on 500 posts) Don't know where Jehosophat came from it just jumped at me ;-) Indigo? Well it's a shade of blue after all.
I have the bluesiest name of all, er, nerdiest anyway.
Back when I was starting out I just needed a nickname (it was back when no one dared use our real names online on account of this thing called privacy!) Anyway, I'm not the most organized person, so I needed something I would remember, and I happen to play some video games so I just borrowed one of my character names. Nacoran was the name of my elf!
