When I was about 18 years of age, I used to make music with my mates, blizzard was my pseudonym. I chose it, because I wanted something with "authority" and I loved the Blizzard computer games, like Starcraft or Diablo 2. That´s the story :)

I used it when I first registered in an international F1 forum. The reason behind it was that I was a fan from Malta, so, maltafan.

My username? Well, Rachael is my name. And I wanted to think of something constructive so I thought up 'The-Great' :)
I was quite proud of it actually :p

"Eleanor" is the only Ford Mustang in history to receive Star billing in a movie (Gone in 60 Seconds - with Nicolas Cage and Angelina Jolie)
1967 Shelby GT500E Mustang is one of my favourite cars...

Columbo??? Not bad show, I like the name. On other forums I've started using the name "Debaser" after a song by the Pixies as the song's manic and the name is concise.
