What made you pick your screen name?

    My name and initial of surname. I would have tried for a name without the initial, but they were taken. (From Windows 7)

    I like Coca-Cola (Coke for short) and something made me put a Robot at the end. So it became....

    Coke Robot.

    As long as robot doesn't drink Coke, electrical short circuit won't happen.

    Back when I played multiplayer games online as a kid, I had to come up with a user name. The first I chose was Shadow_Nightfall and Shadow_Nightfall1. Thinking back on it, it is pretty dumb. So shortly after, I changed it to DustSailor.

    The reason I picked that one is because I love old ships (such as frigates). Also, I live in a desert. How cool would it be to have a ghost ship sailing the desert at night? Ah, but I was a kid with these thoughts. Do we ever truly grow up?

    *Disclaimer, I had the thought about a sand ship before the pirates movies came out

    Named after a big red Tom-cat I used to have.

    'Katanyavich' (the Communist Cat), because of his colour.

    So, Kat for short....:-)

    I thought it was because you kicked up dust sailing in the desert? But, there I go thinking again!

    No. I refuse to grow up! Heart wise anyway. Children are willing to share and give. They don't care about color of skin. They don't use weapons -> they just sock you one! They play peacefully for the most part. There's so much to learn from kids.
