    My first and middle names are Stephen James and when I was younger I switched them around and shortened James to Jimmy, then decided to spell it like Hendrix because I was listening to a lot of Hendrix at the time. Now all my forum names are jimistepehen or jimi_Stephen.

    First and last initials are MO. "Mo" is a slangier version of "more". Birds - the ones on PRS necks, of which I have more than I really need given my mediocre playing. So MOBirds (than I need) is the full intended handle, but () are not valid in handle name - and far too long to type.

    Well, I wanted to be James, but that was taken, so I decided to go with Jester, but that was taken, so I looked up the Sanskrit word for smacking, but that turned out to be the same as the word for bangin' and THAT was taken, so I thought about using the first initial and last name of my high school sweetheart Janine Mintzer...

    So my first name and part of my last name

    The pump don't work 'cause the vandals took my handle.
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    My name is David Jones. Many places I've worked use my first initial and last name for my login name. Sometimes when creating names for computer games, I would reverse my name to be Divad Senoj. Hence, dsenoj.

    Rango - a name for a Character in a film my youngest liked at the time I signed up and a handle that wasn't taken. I used to use "Chutist" A play on the old John Wayne Movie and my occupations - Firearms Instructor and Jumpmaster... I still use that on most of the other forums.
    If I thought I was going to live this long I'd have taken better care of myself!

    Mine is from my 1st email address which came from what I always saw written on the soundboard when I was recording or playing live. CR = Chris Reynolds. GTR = guitar. Not very creative but easy for me to remember.

    Daniel is the name my folks gave me. They took it from the Bible or so they claim. The first BBs I was on were auto racing boards and I noticed that the people always stirring **** never used their real names while the more credible people tended to use their name and/or name and car number. I was Daniel12 there but didn't need the number here.

    Back when I first ventured on to the web, Spike was still alive so I used spikedog for all my user accounts. Spikedog is often taken so I added a little James Bond to it...


    BTW: Spike was named after the Tom Petty song. My current dog is named Layla, that one just came to me...

    Here's a pic of Spike (Lab) and Layla (Great Dane) - both incredible dogs!

    Bill (wilerty) asked me once why my guitars had to be red.

    First off, they don't. I've owned several McBurst, a purple, two raspberry, charcoal, gray/black to name a few,

    But - the first electric guitar I played regularly was a loaner. An Ibanez 335 copy in red. We called it Big Red.

    The first electric guitar I ever bought (kept for ~20 years) was an Electra MPC LP clone in red.

    Somehow, early on - in my head guitars were just supposed to be red...

    First red PRS I owned was a vintage cherry Swamp Ash Special, then a black cherry Standard 24, a vintage cherry Standard 22 Studio, ruby red burst PS HB II #935, scarlet burst 513, scarlet burst Ted McCarty Ltd, scarlet burst Custom 22 semi-hollow limited, and fire red burst Siggy Ltd...

    I may have missed one or two - I used to have a list of all 21 (i think) PRS's that have gone through my hands, but I think I lost it in a computer crash. I'll have to look around.
