I'm a Project Mangler for CSC (The IT company with the really good bike team), though in the trade we're known as Cowboy Selling Computer... Yee-Harrrr!

As for the name, when not at work and doing work trips to the pub on a friday, I'm the taxi service for my children, their friends, their families etc...

They all bundle in with all the clobber and still there's room!

Biggest laugh was a group of teenagers singing "The wheels on the bus" on the way home from the school disco/ rave.

Yes I do know what you mean - and you're right. But I was a 'nice' honest person with integrity and not a pushy salesman who'd sell his disabled granny - that's why I only stuck it for 9 weeks...

I'm not very good in the mornings, and my wife calls me Grizzly Bear(especially when I have a couple of days stubble), she then became Babber Bear(I'm Bristolian, what can I say my lover!) When we we're in Newquay on a week end several years ago, I won an Incrediable Hulk cuddle toy from one of those grabbing machines, he became the maskot of the T4 I had at the time and we called him Hulkiebear!

He got transferred to the T5 and so I go by the Name Hulkiebear on the internet.

Oh god, don't tell my wife I told you all that!

'cos I have no imagination and I live in the UK and because its what I use almost everywhere else too and I can't remember much as my brain is full of the same useless stuff that Orangina suffers from so my initial and my surname and country at least reminds me who and where I am.  I have stump jumper too but its been so long since I've been on it I can't recall which one,  I also worked in the forces for a short time and have a motorbike but have not sold windows or gas or been born in the 50s.

Mine is even more boring Kombi (And I was born in 57 too!)

While we are a bit off topic here, how about us all adding where we live (and what we think of it) as part of our sig?

Cant remember exactly what i was thinking when i typed in my user name. ( pretty sure its because of the " gansta rappa " Fifty Cent )

Obviously if i was in a European country i could have kept the name the same, but being in the UK it had to be Fifty Pence !!.

You can really shorten it down though. ( 50 )( isn't that right HH !! )

 please I don't want to be reminded of this episode of my life!   That advert was on the telly years ago but, when I was with Everest in '98, they still used it as a promotional video...

My first name is Greg, I live in Australia (oze) and I have a Doberman (dobe) - the first Web forum I joined was for dog agility enthusiasts.

I couldn't be bothered making up a new Id for any subsequent forums, so I stuck with the first one (I can remember it most of the time).
