Who was the guy who used to have, I think, Gort from The Day the Earth Stood Still as his avatar? I think he was from Texas. Died years ago. Trying to remember his screen name.

The older guy who liked to sit on the balcony at the 'dust and eat bean dip and corn chips? He had two word name indicating a curmudgeonly attitude, but I can't think of it exactly.

Oh no, Tom, I was counting on you. But I don't think it was a curmudgeon name. I can almost see it. I think it might have been Plano, TX and it just seems maybe his named played off something, was in reverse...arrrgghh.

Sivled did that with his name, but he was from KY.

I'll ponder this enigma.

I can see his avatar and the page in my mind and his name is just beyond my grasp and driving me crazy. If Brian's old site was around it would be an easy find. Dammit.

It was two words....

^^^ No, yeah, I think he is the other guy who died in about the same span of a year I think, but that's not it. Though, that may be where I got the Texas connection.

It was J Houston. He was good friends with Randy. He passed away while on a cruise. Randy just passed away on the 12th.

I pm'd a guy from Plano, he is just about 25 min or so from me. He died? Zombie, I'm like you, I can see the information in my head, but I can't recall it. If he is the one I think he is, he pm'd me about Jordan going to A&M......I think one of his kids went there.

Okay, so it suddenly dawned on me to use the Way Back machine to look at some of Brian's old site pages and sort of found out what I was looking for:

JC Houston lists his location as Sector V

Nano Player was from Plano, TX
