Ah, I wish I could have come up with something fancier, something less pedestrian. But I was more busy figuring out what to write in the other fields for membership acceptance. Sinha is my last name of course.

Bought a bullet that has the 'bite'.
And ofcourse wanted the handle to sound similar.

An office colleague suggested BullDawg (Snoop Dawg beware) instead for he did not know what Rabid meant.

Navan is a part of my name. 49 is my birth year.I use it as user name for my user ids with out financial transaction sites. It is easy to remember. Most of the sites ask with alpha numeric user name. That too is a reason to come up with my user name.

My name is Avinash Godbole; hence my user name. Actually this is also a part of my mail id. I would have liked to use avi with part of surname but did not want it to sound avigod

I am a sailor and the plimsollmark holds a lot of significance to us Sailors. These marks which are marked on all ships were introduced by a gentleman named Samuel Plimsoll to prevent illegal overloading of ships by greedy owners, these overloaded ships were highly unsafe on the high seas and quite a few of them sank in mid 19th century. Today it is illegal all over the world to allow a ship to submerge beyond these marks.

For those who want to know more - here's the wiki link.

Cheers

P.S. Another username I did want was roughseas as I seem to be getting a lot of these in the last 18 years at sea ! But this had already been taken by a friend.

Yeah - maybe I can clarify the DP - its the Logo of my brand - 'Sunshine Homeopathy Clinic'.
Thats 'Sunny' the official mascot & logo - befitting the tagline - 'spreading Hope, Cheer & Joy'.

Its a trademarked & registered brand name & logo. Hence....


I was originally looking for LoneWarrior or H@wK.
(my usual - in CS, or other such forums)
But then later skipped it due to the shift in priorities overall.


*Note - Mods if this is considered advertising, then I am sorry & please delete the post.
No such intention.
But I followed up with this post - simply because I had a doubt - that my earlier post 'maybe' considered too short & a meaningless addition.
So did not want to flout any rules.
If you feel I should edit & merge - I shall be more than happy to.
Sorry.
