My username is a phrase from a song that I really like by my favorite band. I had to user the x to separate the two because the phrase I was originally going to use was taken. So I went with my second favorite phrase.

Paranoia's not exactly hard to figure out. Though it's the name of two characters in two different stories. One of which is mine, and one that isn't. My character's name isn't truly Paranoia. It's just the identity she assumes when she goes on stage with her band to sing. The other charscter which belongs to my favorite band, Coheed & Cambria, is a member of the Prise. The leader of them to be exact. Who's like an angel-like being who's job is to watch for the return of 'God' which has nothing to do with the God most people believe in, it's actually the character version of the real life writer and singer, Claudio. Anyway..that's who that character is lol. They mean something to me, in that I took something I knew and put into an creative endeavor of my own while being original. Doing something I love: writing.

Hello, this is a good question to ask all of us for sure. OK, my username is VKXY62. VK stands for Australia. ?? you say, howcome? OK then, in the world of amateur radio operators, we are all given callsigns for use on the radio. Each country has its own methods of callsign assignment. It is a very simple thing for Australians, and for other people around the world to recognise us. All Australian amateur radio operators begin with VK. in Canada, they begin with VE. My full callsign is VK3UKF. The 3 indicates which state I live in. 3 for Victoria, 2 for New South Wales, 8 for Northern Territory, etc. It simply follows the postal code system. Some countries have mucked up the simplicity of these and have all sorts of different things at the begginning, depending on class or level of education. The USA is a good example of confusion. XY, I used to drive an old Australian 1970 XY Ford Falcon, only just recently retired. 62, the year I was born. There you go.
