    why rudeboy you ask ?

    it's a long story... well, actually it's not :} there are various reasons;
    1) many many moons ago i had a bbs, and since i was/am very blunt and straight to the point they started calling me rudeboy
    2) i like ska - guys that are followers of ska are called rude boy's.
    3) a Dutch cross-over band (Urban Dance Squad) singer is called rude boy

    that'll do for now :}

    If you like ska, check out a band called Barker's Beauties. You may love it.

    I suppose to continue this topic, I'll explain my Name. Up until I was about 30, any group of people that I assimilated to, I was always the youngest of the bunch. Army, College, Friends, gamers, Paintball, you name it. No reason why it happened, it just was a vast coincidence.

    My Surname has always been getting confused with that great actor Gary Oldman.

    Due to the above two facts (and a few other more obscure ones), everyone called me "Old Man". So much so, that I even had teachers in college that called me by that.

    I'm part German.

    When stepping online back in 1998, I combined the Nickname, with a Bad German translation of "The Old Man" and hence "Der Alta" was born. I even owned the website www.deralta.net for a while.

    Continuing on, mine was a nickname I got in college. Everyone in the marching band said I looked like a former member they called Paco. Add my lucky number (I don't know why) and eureka! It stuck when I joined the Army since many people in my company also went to the same college I did.

    i was given one of my names because it belonged to my mom's sister it is her middle name. She died from leukemia at 16.

    I am sure my middle name has a story but I dont recall it right now.

    Back in the work days the office called me the Doctor (long story) and my last name is Drew, which rhymes with Who, which rhymes with Q.

    Thought it might have been pretentious when I joined Qusers since I didn't know sh*t so I kept my mouth shut for 4 months and Searched and Read.

    part of mine is simple. The 250rs comes from a car I used to own/race. A '98 mitsubishi eclips rs.
    if your not familiar with the model it's a 4cyl non turbo 2wd car..stock Hp is a whopping 125..whopti freaking do. After some tweaking she got to 250Hp.. still non turbo no nitrus. I could whip up on most 6cyl domestics and quite a few lighty modified imports. She was put to rest(parted out) after a race that resulted in motor damage that I never got around to fixing.

    They have a myspace page (same name) with some tunes available. I haven't gotten a cd from their trumpet player yet, but I'm working on it.

    DAB was easy. I DAB in on this thread and that thread. Though I do hold a small amount of envy towards those members that have posted one hundred some odd times. I'm sure there is a celebration thread in waiting right now for another "Q" member that has laped me twice in the amount of posts. You will only find my silly banter on threads here and there.:foot:
