    Thought it might be interesting if everyone explained what their callsign meant. For example, I used to be a mechanic specialising in Alfa Romeo's, so Alfa Romeo Doctor= alfadoc. What does yours mean?

    I don't know if people think the year is the year I was born ? It isn't.

    It was simply to title of the book I was reading when I first signed up to Ebay, many auctions ago ;) Somebody had already got Mark, and I was struggling to think of something !!

    I've used it ever since.

    Mine is not what it looks like to most people.
    It's not, amaze-ya. It's ama-ziah as in jeremiah.
    It means amazing creator or the creator is amazing.

    I found it about 12 years ago in an encyclopedia. (Yes, I'm a geek and I like reading the encyclopedia!:roll: )
    It is a prophets name who lived back in the time of Moses.
    I thought it was a really cool name and I have been using it ever since.

  8. I like rock, I like paper & scissors. Seemed appropriate at the time I was signing up to the forum. Seems kind of corny to me now, but I'm stuck with it.

    Hi All!

    Shameless plug starts here...

    To see more about these N/Z scale digital paper models (priced at only $7.50US), please go to eBay and search under "Old West paper models" in the model RR section.:grin:

    The Apollo 12 mission had been struck by lightning during liftoff and lost all telemetry. Mission Control was close to aborting the flight. A flight controller remembered the same situation during a training simulation from a year earlier and told Apollo 12 to "Try SCE to Aux", meaning to put the Signal Condition Equipment switch to the Auxillary position. They did and telemetry was restored so the mission could continue.
    I just thought it sounded neat. There has been a few times in making some paper models that I wished I had a SCE switch I could put to Aux. :roll: :grin:
    Here is some additional information: Apollo 12 SCE to Aux

    Hmmmmmm.......... John A Bowden Bowden J A

    When I signed up to my ISP there was a John Bowden, John A Bowden, and JABowden, so I did the last name,first initial and middle initial, and it worked.

    Guess all those early years being on-base and seeing everybody's name tag done this way stuck with me.:grin:

    After The Great Kazimierz.

    At school we were lucky enough, (some say unlucky enough) to have studied the second world war in History. Learning about Polands plight and how it stemmed from hundreds of years before, I became enthralled at its history. Everything from them not being allowed in the Victory Parade (to appease The Russians and the Americans.) To helping the Americans beat the English in the American War of Independence.

    That and my Maths teacher was also called Kazimierz. What a wonderful man he was.
