Well, I chose mine based on the first three letters of my name 'Avijit' and the 550m comes from... any guesses? The Ferrari 550 Maranello, one of my all time favourites.

Talking User name

Ha, ha. I was given this nickname by my colleagues during our time together in a training academy. It got so that I used to answer most of their queries about tech stuff. The other nickname was psycho joe for obvious reasons, but I preferred the "doc" prefix over the "psycho" one (pun intended)

Just my first name, I'm afraid.
Guess I don't have the scale of imagination most others here appear to possess!

I am a pilot and when I was training in South Africa had this Pilot who had his Car license plate which read 'AV8ER'. So now you know where I got it from.
