    AFS1970 is a name I use on several forums. It is my initials and the year I was born.A few years ago I switched over to this format as it is a name that will stay with me no matter where I work or travel.

    My name means that my office has a window and that I'm bad at spelling.

    My Office keeps moving, sometimes it even doesn't have walls. And I type worse that I spell, so I guess the_traveler are in a race to the bottom!

    I live in the upper east side of NYC. Shows that when living in the NEC area that I'll choose trains 100% of the time when traveling to Boston or DC than flying. I love flying (travel weekly for work), but the train experience from NYC to DC/Boston is a superior experience (in my opinion)

    Back before web based forums were a thing I was on a gaming newsgroup where every nickname ended with Dragon. Brings back distant memories of my early internet days.

    Just out of curiosity what were you doing online back in 1989? Was it on CompuServe or a UNIX terminal or a BBS?

    How is "chooser of the slain" particularly appropriate for the world's least discriminate weapon of mass destruction? There's a reason "nuclear option" has become a synonym for "method of last resort" in our shared lexicon.

    NW is for "north West" -- like anyplace west and north from Albany NY. Like Rochester, Buffalo, Toledo, Chicago, Minneapolis, Fargo, Portland, Seattle. (maybe even Montreal, Toronto, Thunder Bay, Winnipeg, Vancouver?)

    Where friends and family are. (except for a few in Arizona, how they stand the heat I can't tell)

    "Cannonball" is because of my interest in wooden ships in the Napoleon wars, and

    Because sometimes I've posted stupid blundering things.

    The Ativan, no astrowar, no -- "avatar" -- picture thingy is the cockpit control panel of a "Big Boy" steam engine. (the brakes and throttle are out-of-frame)

    That's for my kid who operated a much more complicated steam engine recently - a 65000 HP one.

    I like riding Amtrak, but most commercial planes are mostly OK. I drive a car if I need to, but don't own one.

    SNL stands for Saturday Night Live. Jamie is my name. 0518 is my birthdate. The reason for my user name is because I have attended many SNL shows when I lived in NYC.

    Mine is oddly enough related to an airline concept I had growing up, and at the time 292 was my favorite number. Since I've used it all over the internet, it's stuck.

    The letter part is the initials of my first name (Brandon) and the first and third middle names, plus my last name. The number part is my birthday, in the format of YY/M/D. The number part can also mean the third car of the four-car consist of the consist no. 26, on Seoul Subway Line 9, which is in the format of XYZZ, where X is the line number, Y is the car number, and ZZ is the consist number. I brought this railcar up because that specific railcar matches my number part of the screen name.
