I used to work with a guy named Zane, who wore many a MegaDeath t-shirts. I would always comment on that, and made sure he listened to the lyrics because David Mustaine has some great things to say. After a few months of me saying "Hey, alright MegaDeath" Zane started replying "Hey alright MegaDoug". Then my daughter got me a big sticker that says "MegaDoug" that now graces the back of the MegaVan. If you've seen it, you'll know it ain't small. It's like the ugly tie the kids get you for fathers day? You have to "put it on"....

Well, I do hope to break my 1/4 century streak this year! But it only counts when I first step onto the dealers floor and get that first whiff of sweat, stale pages, and BO.

I love corgis.  I wanted to get one ever since I saw Ein in the anime Cowboy Bebop. 

I was born in the early 80's so I love all the tv shows, cartoons and movies from that era (GI Joe). 

My last name is Koh, so I've always loved inserting it into my screen names (Kohmando, Kohbra, Kohpacetic, Kohlossus, PsyKoh)

I love mash-ups, thus Corgi Kohmander was born.

Regrets? That I didn't start going to SDCC sooner.

When I was looking for an AIM screen name, "Sefton" "Sefton01" and "Sefton97" were already taken.  Out of desperation, I tried 42 from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.  That worked, and I've been sefton42 since.

A year or two later I was actually contacted by a Nate Sefton who wanted my screen name since 42 was his jersey number.  But I'd had it for awhile already and I wasn't going to switch to sefton43 at that point.

Mine comes from a drunken weekend in Vegas back in the late 90's.   I was at Punk Rock Bowling and all the bands had shirts that said east coast punk, west coast punk, east coast hardcore, west coast hard core.   Being from Colorado we had no coast so we started joking we were no coast punk which eventually got turned into no coast death squad. 

I use it to this day because it reminds me of the carefree days where all my friends became family.   We are still friends to this day :)

So, that's what it means!  I've always wondered if the abbreviation meant something.  Ha ha.  Cool.

Highgiant is my alias for playing on line games so I use it pretty much everywhere I go on line. I used it first in an online soccer management game called hattrick. I couldn't think of a user name to use so just randomly made it up. I'm 5'10 at best so not exactly tall!

I'd like it though and just kind of stuck with it since :).
