    Re: Who are you? How did u choose your handle?

    Back in 1999 I joined my first Auto Enthusiast forum- I was then in the process of Buying a 2000 F150 in Silver. That and i have no imagination.
    I later moderated that forum, then acquired a couple other Ford related Forums
    Doug - Purchased 1/2016, 1995 house with 16x31 ft, ~23000 gallon Gunite pool w 11x7 spa, It has 3 Pentair VS pumps, a boost pump for polaris 3900 and a BaduŽ Jet super-sport swim jet pump, 1.5 hp blower, a CL460 Cartridge filter, 3 fiberstars lights pods. TF-100 test kit. The in pool light works but color wheel is lazy. Plaster needs redone. And an Aquapure chlorine generator, and access via iAqualink - Lots to learn.

    Re: Who are you? How did u choose your handle?

    You guys think you have no imagination? My last name is Donaldson, I just removed the A. Not unimagitive enough? How about the fact that my dad created it for our first email account and I ended up stealing it from him. I am bad at names, both making them and remembering them.

    Of course, I just created an account to read the forum. I just wanted a clean pool, I didn't think I was going to become an active member.

    So, how did you get yours?

    Otter has been a nickname since I was in my teens and there was a song named "Jenny" which featured the phone number 867.5309. When I got my first email account years ago, the "09" (10 character maximum) wouldn't fit so I shortened it and this has been a username for years.

    I play the bagpipes and this is my name on two bagpipe forums. I figured it's easier to remember if I always keep the same name. Also my first name is Mike. With so many different things to remember I just made it a bit easier for me. This is a fun thread

    Re: Who are you? How did u choose your handle?

    My handle is not associated with what you might think. All my closest friends have called me Divin Dave for years now. About all I can divulge, is it had something to do with drinking entirely too many tequila shots (i have sworn off those for life). I can tell ya this though. I earned my nick name the hard way.

    Re: Who are you? How did u choose your handle?

    Skippy/Skipper was my husband's childhood nick-name, and when our pool build was finally finished and we looked at it and I said "Well Yippee Skippy!".

    Skippy and I both discuss posts here on the forum, but I tend to type better so I do most of the answering
