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 :D

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. :)

A communist cat? A contradiction in terms! Cats are too independent to collectivize!

Wow, ChardVC! That takes me way back. I remember watching the movie Zulu as a child. A British production if I remember correctly. Also read on this in world history in high school. Thanks for reviving the memory. :)

Thanks for serving, BTW! Welcome to EightForums.
