Re: What's the significance of your EF name?

Sagitta means an arrow which is a symbol of swiftness, direction, knowledge and aiming at the stars. I'm into symbolism.

There is also a fascination with American Indians.

Re: What's the significance of your EF name?

Well I'm from the west coast of Canada, so my name is not that imaginative. As for my avatar, I thought a picture of a rock would much nicer to everyone than one of my face.

Best thread for a long time. Most posts really made me laugh.

However, my forum name is a joke and the result of a 0.3 second brain storm, because "how important can it be to have a cool nick to such a weird forum?"

Tried to change it, restart all over and what not but I guess I am stuck with it, because I was caught red handed...right Longbyt?

I totally love my avatar though.

A mix of the district in Manchester where I originate, climbing mountains, my surname, and the way I feel when I am away from my family and friends.
