In late 2005 I bought a brand-new 2006 Mustang. I was driving about 30k miles per year in my work, and the combination of (newly) $3/gal gas and my 15mpg F150 was bleeding me dry.

I loved the new body style, but decided to pass on the "fun" of the GT v8 version and buy the 4.0L V-6. It was a beautiful car, and got 30mpg on the freeway.

Several of my friends started teasing me about not getting the GT - about driving a "girl car". I used to tell them that the GT had 3 'advantages' over the V6:
  • worse gas mileage
  • worse insurance rates
  • could get me slightly more quickly to speeds that I can't legally drive

The V6 could smoke the right rear tire all the way through first gear, all the way through second, and chirp shifing into 3rd. It was definitely quick enough.

So I got a personalized license plate for it - QWKYNUF

I drove that car for 9 years and 190,000 miles, and sold it in 2014 to buy a brand-new 2015 Mustang GT. Now I have 435hp and 400 ft/lbs of torque and can go 0-60 in under 5 seconds. (gas mileage took a hit though!).

It wears the same plate. Because it's still QWKYNUF.

edit: and it's unique enough that I have never joined a forum where it was already in use.

Underdog is usually taken at any given site so i started using this as more descriptive.



DW is badbab, a combination of userids at work before and after we married. THAT one trips a lot of spam/appropriate filters.

It's where I live - Central New York. I was thinking of switching to "Thread Killer" because I seem to be pretty good at it.

In 2000 we got a Golden Retriever we named Hatch. Funny name I know, at this time we were boater folks and one night while on the boat we were trying to come up with a name for our pending puppy. My son, 15 years old at the time looked up at the ceiling of the boat cabin where a hatch was located. He says, “how bout Hatch”. The manufacturer of the hatch was Bomar so our pup’s AKC registered name was Bomar Hatch with a call name of hatch.

I started playing online poker (free chips, to cheap to gamble) and selected hatchdog as my screen name. So this has been my screen name for every forum since.

Poor Hatch passed in 2010 and we now have another Golden we got in 2010. At that time we no longer had a boat but did have a tractor and lived rural. So of course we named our current Golden Massey Ferguson as in the old tractor company. Call name of Massey.

We have already decided to name our next dog Forest River. Wonder why?

Here’s Hatch from the days we used to do boat in beach camping on Lake Roosevelt, the revisor created by Grand Coolee Dam.

19 yrs ago when I was 30...I had a '90 something Mazda MX-3 car and it was a play on the nomenclature. Thought I was bad a-word in my little red car! I started a Yahoo email account with the same name and it just stuck.

Mine is a combination of my Scottish heritage and my love of woodworking. My family roots include the MacRae clan from the Highlands of Scotland near the Isle of Skye. One of the common joints in woodworking is the "rabbet", a rectangular shaped cut along the edge or end of a board. I've done some commissioned woodworking furniture with my one-man business, McRabbet Woodworks, LLC.

Our last boat - the one that was going to be the retirement boat - was a 40' Carver, and we had always dreamed of doing the "Great Circle" aboard "Horizon Dancer." So I went to school and got my Captain's license. We sold Horizon Dancer in 2011, never bought another boat, and instead got into RV'ing. But I still hold my license; hence Capt. Mike

When I left the rail industry and went to work for the Federal Rail Road Admin I became to be known as the Ace inspector due to my sharp I eye for finding defects on the Railroad. So it stuck and have used it ever since, Later RJD

I would not name next dog, Forest River, implies forever working to get it right and needing beatings with rubber mallets.

I took SPORT off the side of my 2016 F150 XLT and replaced it with XLT SHAKER. It confuses a lot of people. I've always liked Drag cars that had Shaker in the name. My license plate on the truck says RPTRIZD because I have a bunch of Raptor parts on it.

Funny story about when my DW was setting up her email a few years ago. She wanted to use Loislane (her name is Lois), it was taken so she added an x, then another x. Finally, LoisLanexxx was available. My son says "Mom, you might want to think of something else". She laughed and said "Maybe I should " and she came up with something else.

I worked as a parks and recreation professional (yes that’s a real thing and yes I had plenty of work in the winter).

When I left my first job I was given a t-shirt with the words Fun Engineer on the back. When I got involved online I decided to use Funengineer as my username.
