    Screenname Motivation

    The (somewhat) recent thread about how individuals are connected to the AD made me think that it could be interested to find out how some of us chose our screennames. Any takers?

    I took mine from a rocket (named "Hawk Hunter") I started building in 2006 (see attached images). To help with the sense of scale, the rocket is 8' 4" long with diameters of 5.5" and 4". I hope to finally get it launched this summer (school got in the way of completing it) in Walcott, and hopefully there will be a wind out of the west so it can be launched toward IC.

    Re: Screenname Motivation

    Seemed like people were putting "Cyclone" into their names at the time, and this seemed like an easy name to put together.

    My apologies. It's hard/frustrating enough to find a thread from last week, let along look in the dusty archives.

    Re: Screenname Motivation

    I posted under a different username for a long time. It included my real name and I decided I didn't want people to see it, so I started up a new account. Thus, I'm a "fanatic again."

    Re: Screenname Motivation

    When you're a cyclone fan who bears a slight resemblance to Kevin Smith, "CYlent Bob" becomes a viable option to use as a user name.

    Shockingly enough, my name's not Bob.

    Tool song "Reflection"....What ever will bewilder me...started using it in early high school and it's been one of my names for 10-12 years.

    It'll launch on a 54mm motor (likely to have thrust between ~150 and ~600 lbs).

    A guidance system would require several modifications/components:

    • more-powerful motor capability to get the required distance
    • modifications to the fins to allow for active-control
    • the guidance components themselves (obviously)
    • back-room deals to acquire parts and avoid getting my *** thrown in jail
