jby is sort of an acronym of my real name that I thought up when I realized that my usual BFC Forum name (Yossarian0815) was totally unsuited to being pronounced or understood over the microphone when playing frantic dropteam games.

@Rico: LOL!!! Great! Fully understood! ;) :D :p

@jby: "0815! is a German film/movie series of three films (each 90 minutes) with Joachim Fuchsberger and Yossarian is the protagonist of "Catch 22" as far as I remember it,
is that correct? Both anti war films. Was that your original idea of your nickname?

And "jby" is pronounced "jibby" - right?

But I still have no conclusion of how "jby" represents "Yossarian0815"... ?

It´s not that deep :O)
I started out with Yossarian, only to notice that there are a million other people using that name as a nick. Then I added 0815, which in german denotes "the usual" like John Doe in english. At the time I was only vaguely aware of the 80/15 Machine Gun story.
I then stuck with that because both parts of the nick have a WWII connotation, which I like being a WWII buff and having soldiers on both sides of the conflict in my family.

Everybody called me jaybeewhy online :O)

And the Y is also in Yossarian and there are two Ys in my surname. So maybe it is deep and full of meaning :O)

@Bootie: Let me know if You will be there! We could meet for a short gathering if You want. But I have to warn You, Nathangun can sing a song about that, my english is very bad. Without a translator as Google´s etc. it can become real funny. Even more as the things I commit here at FGM :oops:

@mgk:: How do You know it was a thief german and from Moabit? Or miss I something here? :confused:

Greetings :)

I hope that will not change. The overall observing madness makes me sick. But that´s another topic. Interesting You know who theft You. Was he so an amateur that You recognised it immediately or what? That I don´t grasp right. Did the police catch him? Ok, that are much to many questions. In every case let me know if You are there again - and if You like to meet a bit! Maybe I have time to jump over for one or two moments.

Greetings :)

that was old 65+ quite elegant man - I didn,t know when it happened - I just recall the men and when I checked my pocked (front trousers) my wallet was missing and I knew that he just left the bench - iI was just after little shopping so I am sure that it was him - fast old professional :9
I will call you next time but the same way you will make visiting Warsaw :) - we have the same quality professionals ;) but a lot more CCtV

Thank You! Will do that if the life should lead me there. Sadly the current "life planning" goes in other directions. But one never knows.
