I'm waiting for CYOW to reveal. I've been guessing carry your own wrench. With my first Lotus, I always carried tools as parts seemed to fly off from time to time. I can afford AAA now.
Hahahaha, no not that interesting. My name is Caleb Yow, and my college user name was cyow5. I'm not very creative and figured I can usually count on that one being available.

Made up word.
Definition: a mid-engine car enthusiast, one who appreciates or drives midengine cars.
I just now realized your username isn't midengineer. As an engineer and mid-engine enthusiast, I want to steal that now, haha

Ha, You can have midengineer. I'm an architect so I design very large objects that don't move so last thing anyone would want is me engineering their midengine car! Lol

Mine began as my handle in VWVortex as MadVR6 for my 93 Corrado SLC VR6 (one of the best sounding engines ever)
"Mad" as in angry, insane, crazy, wild + VR6 as in the V - inline 6.
The VR6 is a narrow angle Vee (15° ) engine. (German: V-Motor) and a straight inline engine (German: Reihenmotor) 6 cyl).

The name then evolved when I got a 225 Audi TT and joined Audiworld as Mad MaTTer . I went a little deeper and dropped the VR6 and changed it to matter as everything is composed of matter. I was getting really into material engineering at this time while in engineering school so I used a play on words for MaTTer upper case -TT- (Audi TT) and the character the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland / Through the looking glass.

I liked the name because it sounded a bit cynical and mysterious and it held a little history of me and my cars so I kept "Mad MaTTer" when I got the Lotus 12 yrs ago and joined Lotus Talk.

When I was a freshman in high school, a senior in my home room class started calling me Krazy Karl. When not already in use I have been using it as my forum screen name ever since.

Maybe obvious if you think about it? Paramedic turned physician. I'm some variation of dr-exmedic (some places allow hyphens, other's don't) pretty much everywhere I go online.

I'm a big Max Headroom fan. Blank Reg ran Bigtime Television from a Pink Bus and was a member of a group called the Blanks that kind of lived off the grid. Figured I should join his group, so I'm Blank Dan

I was a competitive snow ski racer in my teens and early twenties then went on to city league ski racing through to my late forties. I lived to ski. Driving my Lotus is an extension to those days, it always carves the perfect line.

When I was a kid my Dad had a CB radio. My handle was Joe Cool. I guess I was thinking about Snoopy when I had to pick a name. When the internet came along I added the "L" to reflect my first name.
