I'm not going back to zero.
'All of Zedbetty's 'stories' HERE' doesn't have quite the same ring to it.

I seem to remember an unofficial policy that people could make changes where it was still obvious who they were, e.g. BonoManiac becoming BoMac, BonoVoxSupastar becoming BVS, etc. I recall Sicy's screen name used to be something longer too, but I think it changed either before my time or not long after I became a regular here.
I'd follow that trend, shorten it to something like VU2 or VU or whatever (I once considered Vladelaide).

If I had the chance to do it all over again, I'd call myself Achtung Bubba.

Everybody should be renamed to Achtung Bubba.

I definitely support Vlad becoming Vladelaide.

Meanwhile, I get confused if I ever need to think of a different screen name for whatever purpose. Coming up with my professional Twitter handle was hell. I would've just revived my old Axver account there but I want to keep at least some separation between my professional and personal online presences.

God I'm sick of this winter. At least around here, it is mostly cloudy, most of the time. I can't remember the last time we had a proper sunny day, it might have been that one day in between the last system and the current system.

Mostly it's just cloudy. And dull.

Where do you live? (if you don't mind me asking)

What you described sounds more like Melbourne than Sydney... I think.

Oh, hahah! Those are the choices, huh?

No, I live in southern Queensland, some way north of those two places, which contrary to their inhabitants' impression, are not Australia in its entirety.

I think you will find that Australia extends between Bell Street, Coburg in the north and the Yarra River in the south.

I can imagine it getting on people's nerves, those who don't live in ever-popular Syd & Mel. I visited your country for the first time in Jan this year. Yes, I too am guilty of having visited only those 2 cities. But hey, I had only 2 weeks vacation at my disposal!

Hey you've got to vacation somewhere.

As it happens, I once went to Sydney, but in reality I only really saw Newtown because that's where the people I was visiting lived. It was ok. Streets, buildings, you know.

Such an expansive place! A wide open land!

My wife wanted to go to Uluru to see the milky way.

We ended up going to Sydney Observatory on a rainy night.

Oh well, maybe next time.

You can see the Milky Way pretty much anywhere that isn't a city. Drive fifteen minutes out of Sydney (wherever that is at this point, halfway to Lake Eyre) and there you go.

That reminds me; I thought more than once that certain rightwing cranks' dreams of creating an inland Australian sea could one day be turned to the purposes of ameliorating climate-change-induced sea level rise. Simply delve great channels at both the Gulf and the Bight to flood an inland sea basin. Downsides: ruinously expensive, tectonically unpredictable, fucking insane. But I've patented the idea.
