I just used the name my parents gave me. And as it is not so common, it was accepted.

Imagine the first time I heard the name Rushu, and GTO was refered to

Even here I saw opportunity to crack a joke.

Cheers harit

Mark 5 = The famous gadget loaded car (from the famous cartoon Speed Racer). Would love to see it (and own it) into reality with all those gadgets.
It was the first car that fell in love with.

ibcool - This goes back to the time of honda city launching, i remember this as i used to drive a maruti 800 then and there used to be this midnight blue honda city in my locality with pitch black tints and a nice set of wheels, the number plate had i.b.cool written on it. I used to always wish to own that particular car as it looked kinda menacingly gangster to me in my head.

so thats where ibcool comes from

On my first day in hostel in iit-m, I went around saying 'hajaar funda yaar' whenever I saw something cool or new. Needless to say, I was immediately bestowed this name. All my friends from iit & iim know me only by my nickname as my real name is very popular in tamil nadu.

I was bored in office and was watching YouToob to kill some time when I stumbled upon the "I like Turtles" viral video. Wasn't the first time I saw it, but I was still going everywhere and saying "I like Turtles" all day long to everyone. When I decided to sign up for Team BHP that day, guess what name I chose?

I am a specialist in a particular branch of engineering and is a consultant in that area. Hence in few forums, I use the name specialist (I am also influenced by the movie name "specialist").

Even I thought of taking up a cool 'alias' and pondered long to get a suitable name but then i thought, why disrespect my parents' blessings. So i went ahead my original name. The number signifies my year of birth so that someone can guess my age and forgive me for anything wrong that i post

My handle comes from the handle I use on weekends to play Team fortress 2, an online FPS game .

Long long ago, in a place far far away, my username was proposed by Yahoo! (or was it Hotmail?) as a suggested username when signing up for a new account well over a decade ago. Ever since then, the username/chat handle stuck.

Alberto Ascari is the inspiration for my handle.

When I was in school, I was bowled over by one particular girl and I used to just follow her madly.

Whatever she does, it just fascinates me, Yeah, I was crazy..Her mail ID was something like xyz@cliffhanger.com.. I don't know why, but this ID got deeply wired in my mind. From then on, whenever I used to create a handle, I just give Cliffhanger..

Lazy word play on my initials, AU. That's the symbol for gold. Aurum is Latin for gold.
