    I'm having an identity crisis...

    I don't know... :confused: I hate to give up my handle when it seems to elicit a giggle. Like: "What's 'ceviche' mean?" "It's a piquant seafood cocktail made of fish that gets cooked using lime juice acids..." "I thought so..." :D Besides, I've always viewed myself as having a "piquant" personality. Definition: "Agreeably pungent to the taste."--Webster's. :p

    Just the same, I'll sign-off with my real name from now on--for those who don't already know it.

    --Dave Eriksen

    BTW, I don't really look like a "Dave Eriksen." Just ask Bhudda.

    I haven't done much posting (or, alas, fishing) lately, but you're welcome to change "Fish Recycler" to Teeg Stouffer.

    How do you feel knowing that I like to eat ceviche? Its one of my favored Mexican treats. I rather doubt that you look like fish, stewed in lime juice with a liberal amount of onion, tomato, and chili. Because if that can walk, I am leaving town.

    I don't look like a Rob Blomqvist from Sweden, and I don't care. Get with it dude.

    On top of that one, Chief. I like hats, too.

    Chris, here's a question

    Is our handle always ours? Or once we switch to our name, we lose our moniker? I just don't want someone signing up and taking Steelheader69 (not that they would, but just if). If we always have it saved to our account, that's great. If not, I would want mine switched back, and will put my name on the bottom like Roper did (think it was Roper). Not worried about anyone wanting my real name. LOL. If they did, more power to them. LOL

    (chris) Yes, you would loose your moniker and it would be available for others to use. If it comes to it I'll take care of it Jerry. SH69 is yours bro. (chris)

    Wait a tic Chris

    I just saw that pic of the hat. I must've totally overlooked it. I want one!!! What colors are they coming in? Or just the creme (or white, can't tell)? I'll probably buy two. LOL.

    (chris) just the creme / tan this order. I've only got 50 to start with but next order I'll mix it up with some more tan, a coffee color off some type and black. (chris)

    Geez...You turn your back, and...

    After a 12-day hiatus caused by the catastrophic failure of my computer, I come on here to find everything changing! Hey, change is good!
    To reply to Chris' challenge, I'm good to go with my real name, too. I WILL miss New River Mike, but a thorn by any other name...or whatever...

    I agree screen names are more fun and then there is the privacy issue...But I respect the call to put a name where the mouth is.
    Personally I was looking forward to changing my screen name to one that better described my personality. Maybe a few didn't take comments too seriously from someone named "beadhead"?

    I checked the user menu and I saw how we can change just about everything except our screen name, is this still an administrator function?

    If so, please change my name to ChrisW, underneath you can write beadhead sailfish.

    The latter is the intended screen name change I had in mind. It combines my two favorite hobbies into one magnificent animal. And it sounds better than ChrisW beadhead

    Nice job on the site! I /we appreciate all the hard work.
