Capt al is a nickname giving to me at the first company Christmas party I attended with my current job. It started as a joke 8 years ago and has grown a life of its own. The president of the company calls me by it. When I picked up a new van at the lettering shop, Capt Al was painted under the drivers side window. The comments I get are comical.

My name comes from when I was an apprentice. I drilled non stop for a month. Concrete hammer drilling. One day the boss started calling me drillman. Seemed like a good handle to use on the net.

That boss liked to give everyone nicknames. Had a guy who was a computer guy and he used macs so he called him.... macman.

Picked up the nickname Radar from a foreman some years ago on a good day of troubleshooting (lucky day, actually) shortly after we turned power on in a building.

There are 10 types of people. Those who know binary, and those who don't.

Well I have had Hurk for a long time, and back when I was little I was involved with the CB radios and had the handle Hercules, which was always taken on the net so on the radio most called me Hurk for short and I added the 27 which is my birthday in October.

When I first got on the radio (1968) I first called myself little guy but because I had a 150' tower and 6 element beem and a old RCA short wave radio transmitter 25kw converted to 11 meters (thank's to my Dad) everyone started calling me Hercules and it stuck. [Linked Image]

Mine's from an awful B-grade horror flick from the early 80's called "the Pit". A weird loner kid in some town finds a pit in the forest where creatures called "trollalogs" live and he befriends them and starts feeding the unsuspecting townspeople to them. More a black comedy than a horror flick- memorable only because it is sooooo bad
