I've used the monker 'phaeton' in my online presence since the mid-90s. Up until VW released their ill-fated and obese "VW Phaeton" I could always grab that username. I'm 'phaeton' on Usenet, IRC and several other forums around the web.

I came here a couple years ago and it was already taken, but the TDPRI phaeton is nowhere to be seen. So I took choice #2: cometazzi

I have another moniker that I've used from my early days of the Internet but it's a tad inappropriate, so I haven't used it here. Strangely, some Russian guy saw it and started signing up to various things with it.

Except for TDPRI, I don’t do any other social media. When I originally joined, I didn’t think I’d be here much so I was kind of flippant when signing up.

As a joke, around that time my stepdaughter had shared the cartoon that became my avatar. My name kind of ties to the image, both of which are ridiculous. According to Mrs. Sparkle, they typify my “Tendency to be simultaneously entertaining and awful. But mostly awful” she says.

So I’m stuck with an unfortunate name linked to an equally unfortunate avatar. But ain’t this a great place?!

I didn’t join for months because I didn’t have a good name. And then when I did … I’m not Toad! My first telecaster is Toad.
Whatever though really. Just glad to be here. This forum is great.
Well that's just great. So what am I supposed to do with all these crickets I've been collecting to send you?

Well, for what it is worth, your forum name is a winner.

One of my tunes is called "Fetch Ye Lute and Codpiece". I had misgivings about the silliness of it all, prayed to the oracle and begged to change my name but was ignored. So here I am - Lute & Codpiece. 😕
