    I've been reading a lot lately on trans- and post-humanism and this was the first thing to cross my mind. I didn't feel creative enough during the registration process to come up with something else. :D

    @Transhumana,

    if only you had taken the trouble of being a bit more creative & thought of a smaller user name it would have saved me the trouble of

    typing eleven letters every time i mention you :p :D

    You will have to ask a staff member for a name change. ;)

    Hello and thanks for the replies! I wanted to change my MT user name to my Twitter user name Country Boy_MN. It would be easier for MT members to look me up.:) That's about it really. As far as how I got that user name, well it's from a single from Hank Williams Jr. The original title to the song is : A Country Boy Can Survive. It was released in Jan. 1982. It's still one of my favorite songs. ;) So that's it I guess. If an administrator is that ok that DM sometime. Because of the holiday weekend I'll offline till Monday. Have a great weekend all!:)

    "Sher" - in my language means lion. Not only do I look like one, but my zodiac sign also is Leo.

    And pretty simple and short username as well. I like to keep things simple. That's about it!

    I wanted to register as OldCodger on another forum but it was already taken. I looked on the Italian dictionary and the closest translation is vecchio marpione. But vecchio marpione ( though very close) imply much more in Italian than old codger do, both good and bad.
    Have fun to work out how much of this or that I may be from the dictionary translation, which by the way fall short of the meanings of old codger and vecchio marpione.
    At 66 years young, a bit of a codger I still am, a bit of marpione too. Then I remembered a mountaineers old song from my homeland, "vecchio scarpone quanto tempo e' passato..."
    As now I'm mostly just an old boot he he, VecchioScarpone (OldBoot) was born.

    This handle was an old BBS handle from the 1980's a buddy of mine used. I thought it was cool back then. Since I use 100% unique names on every forum and every account and never duplicate, it was what came to my mind when I registered this account.

    Honestly I don't remember if I've already answered in this thread but nothing special: "tim one" is for "helm", "timone" in Italian language, a simple game of words :)
