calibrax
I used to own a Vauxhall Calibra, and when I first had to set up a username on the 'net, I found that 'Calibra' was already taken... so I added an 'x' to it. Used it ever since, for pretty much everything on the web. I own the 'calibrax.com' domain as well. :)

The B was my First Contact with the MG marque! Such an Enterprising encounter. I must say that I have found a lot of Data on this site to keep The Next Generation of MGs going, my ZT, and am confident that it will always look after me on the Voyage Home from The Undiscovered Country. Sadly future Generations my not be able to.

Lower your sheilds and surrender your weapons. Resistance is futile........

Samarkand
I was looking for a replacement for the Rover 620Di that I used to have, and I was checking a 607 Peugeot at that time. In the Peugeot 607 catalogue, they had this blue colour (very close to the Steel Blue) named Samarkand Blue. Then the weekend after, I was at my Rover dealer's and was checking the 75. I saw mine and the rest, as they say, is history because since then she became mine (sometimes I wonder if I own her or if I'm possessed by her)...
From the 607 experience remained the Samarkand name (which I gave her on the same day that the selling act was done) due to her Steel Blue colour and the Sandstone interior which are the main colours of the city of Samarkand in Uzbekistan (Google for some more images of this very nice city) .

I'm using my car name as she's one of the reasons I'm on the forum ;)

BADLAD
Hi all, back again after a long computer related absence!
I usually use BAD455 as a nick, but when I tried to join this forum, I wasn't allowed for whatever reason. I presumed that it was possibly due to 455 looking like another word for donkeys and hence I had been a BADLAD for trying to use offensive words.
I never dreamt that I would be meeting people face to face, it has been an embarrassment to me ever since! Oh well, we live and learn...
Good to be back with you guys, I'll try to get to that Wolverhampton nano in march.

Nice to see you back on the forum Ian. I'm unsure why your first choice of username was rejected. The criteria being minimum 6 characters and mixed numbers and letters. :confused: I can probably change it if you wish. :)

Wouldn't that be the criteria for passwords rather than usernames?
