Email JimRob. Should be no problem.

Are you going to be George from Dade City?

What, you don't like "George"?

I hit the abuse button so the Mods can see this one. I think it can be done, but it may not be easy.

First you need to get into the Way Back Machine and set it for March 16th 2000. Then you need to go find yourself and stop yourself from creating your current screen name. Your old self will be shocked enough to see you that he will likely enter the new screen name that you give him.

WARNING!! Do not touch your old self since the same matter cannot occupy the same space at the same time.

I see tabs but I CANNOT FIND where to change the screen name.

I’m still George but moved 1500 miles. People do that in 9 years!

“George from Tampa Bay” is more accurate than “New England”

I’ve been to Dade City. They need some rain down there...BAD.

There are cactus growing all around and the river had no water in it when I was last there.

Pretty bit of country otherwise.

As I said, you can't.

John Robinson MIGHT be able to do it but YOU can't.

Nobody (or almost nobody) knows where Dade City is. Actually 99% of the country would think Miami-Dade is think I’m almost Mexican. Dade City is really country life in the Florida hills. The only hills this state really has.

Rain came a bit early last month, but need more is right.

Your username is probably a key to an index so you cannot change it.

What you are really saying is that nobody will change it until it becomes “George from six feet under”

John Robinson is six feet under with his family on a planet near Alpha Centauri. Lost in the 1960s. Only photos that remain are black and white.

That's what I was thinking! I'm actually "from" Chicago but now live "in" Canada--hence the screen name!

It's a nice name, George. :)

“George previously from New England and currently in Tampa Bay” has a nice ring to it.
