Buz - comes from Buz Lightyear, the character in Toy Story. I used to be quite fascinated by the concept of "To infinity and beyond" as a child and thought it to be an apt nickname for myself in an automobile enthusiasts' forum.

Revy - I have been following this forum for 1+ years, got posting privileges only recently.
My user name is derived "revving" and it sounds very close to my first name

my sister always created her IDs with a hello prefixed or says suffixed to her actual name...i decided to follow her example only when i first opened my yahoo id in class 9.. after a lot of brainstorming i decided that the word 'wish' would sound best with my name... so the name wishnipon

Didn't think much - just picked up based on my first name. If I get a chance to change it now then it would be Wondering_Monk.

Its my first and last name combined and it also was my alias when I was working for microsoft. I should have thought of something better but at that time I was more concerned about how to impress the Mods to let me in ( the why TBHP section )

I had tried to register with the use name I normally use in other forums, but my registration attempt was disapproved. After that, for some reason, I wasn't able to use that user name to register again. So I had to think of a new user name. StarrySky is the name of a kids' room theme offered by a paint company. We've used it in our daughter's room. It just happens to be the first thing that came to my mind when I was thinking of a new user name.

Doctor by profession so the initials (dr)....."Holeshot"This term is used to describe the starting performance of a vehicle. A vehicle that is fast off the line (though not necessarily fast overall) is said to have a good "holeshot".
The holeshot is a term used primarily in motorcycle racing (but also motorsport racing in general) for the rider who is the first one through the first turn. In some cases a holeshot award will be given, which is a prize separate from winning the race. In drag racing, a "holeshot" refers to a victory in which a driver runs a quicker elapsed time (E.T.), but loses the race due to a slower reaction time at the start.

I chose my nickname to be Sans.
Reason being :-
A. I am known by this name in lots of Motorcycling clubs and biking communities.
B. Its a combination of my Formal and nickname.
Its a combination of Sunny and Saurabh Katar.
Don't know whether it makes logic or not.
