    Mine was a nickname I had among high school friends back in the '90's. Was really obsessed with zombie movies from the likes of Romero, Fulci, etc. The 2000 part made it sci-fi or something. Who knows? Either way, people just started calling me ZB or ZB2K. Some will still call me that if I haven't seen them in a while. So yeah...

    Now that's funny, since everytime I see your name my brain goes Kunta Kinte automatically. LOL.

    As for my own screen name it is what Aol gave me when I signed up.

    My handle is pretty easy. The Dawg part comes from the nickname of my alma mater The University of Georgia. The fish part refers to my part time occupation as a fly fishing guide.

    falconcry: This nickname dates back about 13 years. Me and a group of good buddies were camping in the middle of nowhere in the woods of South Carolina. We were sitting on logs around a fire, passing around bottle of whiskey. I leaned over to rip one, and it came out like a high pitch shriek! One buddy said it sounded like a falcon's cry. The name stuck, and I still get called that by some people.

    72: One of my favorite years for live performances by the good'ole Grateful Dead.

    So there you have it: falconcry72

    seeclear--> I am an Optometrist.

    I know seeclearLY would be more correct, but there is a bogus vision improvement system that has been advertised as the See Clearly Method. It is based off of the old Bates method that was first proposed in (I think) the '50s that has been discredited over and over again through the years. So I didn't want to be associated with that, and seeclear it is!

    Actually pretty boring compared with some of the other stories.

    In days of yore, there was this thing called "Dial Up" where your computer hooked up to the InterWebs via your phone line and a modem. Would cost you $29.99 a month for AOL ($19.99 a month for Juno).
    Or you could use Kmart's free service; pick up a free disk at the checkout counter, install, and you're dialing out at 1200 baud (9600 baud if you could afford the modem).
    Kmart was footing the bill, so in honor of their in-store Blue Light Specials, I chose my monicker.

    .... at least that's the reason I'll tell for purposes of Homeland Security Surveillance.

    That's funny--Mine is based on a former car's paint color too. I had a Ford Contour SVT with silver frost paint. (Ag being the chemical symbol for silver)

    Several years ago, my friend and I were waiting outside of a Megadeth concert (Gigantour Tour) for this promotions guy from the local rock station for some tickets. As we were waiting, my buddy and I said that we'd tell the venue employees that we were with the band so we could get in; he was Steve Gigantour and I was John Megadeth.

    For the record, my name's not John :)

    Huh, don't remember that one Sal. I do remember Eurebus, Master of Lamps, and a number of others however.

    I remember using that Kmart free service! Totally forgot about it until you brought it up.

    I used to spend a lot of time river and stream fishing before I moved to the desert. Most of the people I knew online at the time said not to change it, so I'm still Rivrrat.
    My equipment sig felt inadequate and deleted itself.

    Well I'm a Door's fan and ground zero for them was the corner of Santa Monica Blvd and La Cienega. They had an office there (where they recorded LA Woman) and Jim Morrison lived on and off at a hotel across the street. His girlfriends clothing shop was right around the corner, as was their other recording studio, and the Whisky a Go Go on the Sunset strip was not far away either. Must have been a really cool area back in the day.
