    I'm Daniel.

    Default AmsterDan

    Name: Daniel. Dan for short.
    Birth Place: Amsterdam
    Nick name: AmsterDan

    There were two other Dan's working at my first job in Canada, making three in total. After lots of confusion and the wrong Dan looking over when called, they decided to call me AmsterDan as it was short, easy and fool proof.

    My name comes from an old car project which was an engine conversion using a modified 3.5 litre engine(260bhp) from a BMW '88 E34 535 putting it into an '89 E30 325 touring.

    Nice project but makes for a boring name

    Default OSSIDIAN

    Ossidian was the code name used to describe a character in the book The Green Berets: The Amazing Story of the U.S. Army's Elite Special Forces Unit by author Robin Moore.
    Ossidian was CSM of the 5th Special Forces at Fort Bragg. Those of us who were fortunate enough to have known him honor him in our day to day activities.

    I have in recent years gotten into repairing and hot rodding electric guitars and basses. So, in an effort to name the company I used my Mother's first name, "Alpha", after all it's an unusual name, and the GT stood for Guitar Tech. While I have never actually gotten a business license and do all my work under the table, which isn't much really, the AlphaGT has stuck.

    Lightbulb maxerlin

    My name is Max. So, no big deal. The real issue here is that I love the charachter Merlin, Gandalf, and all sorts of magicians, both in fantasy as in the real world - yes, there have been true Magus throughout history.
    So Maxerlin is a nice contraption of Max & Merlin

    Hi all,
    Mine comes from a joke name used by family after I got in the middle of a fight between my car and a tree, trying to avoid a lump of metalwork that had come off a vehicle in the middle lane of the M6 back in Sept 2000. The results of which are now immortalised in the Medical journals :-) https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12009226
    I spent 4 weeks (missed the whole 2000 Olympics) in a medically-induced coma and further two in intensive care getting the very best care from the very fine NHS (a service I would defend to the last), I found myself without any left leg to speak of. Like many hip-disarticulation patients I subsequently found crutches the best form of mobility, and this has had a predictable impact on my upper body development
    Having now lost my main hobby of Shotokan Karate, I learned to play drums as an effective form of rehabilitation and inflicted that on my neighbours for the next couple of years. Since then I go through cycles of my various interests since childhood, namely, Astronomy (Astroimaging to be precise), Origami, Cooking and.......Music. Onward and upwards!

    We don't develop courage by being happy every day. We develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity.
