    Hi everybody,

    after checking, I must admit that I never introduced myself
    properly (except by posting in the "What do you do?" thread).
    As Arturo posted, a mistake can be corrected late, too. I´m
    trying to do so
    - Taking the missing introduction as evidence
    for how I stumbled into this wonderful crowd, was absorbed
    and swept away. -
    By the effects of the slingbug and, honestly,
    most of all by the kindness and friendship I was offered and
    included in immediately.

    Thanks for that once more!

    So here I am: a forty year old young boy, builder and designer
    of things. Living in Germany, happy part of life on earth, my family
    and living with the proud feel of having come to be a part of this
    admirable community.

    It would be less poetic, Achso. Much less poetic.

    BeMahoney. Welcome to the forum. Something tells me you'll be one of the good ones, contributing to the betterment of the slingshot world. I've got a feeling about you, and I'm rarely wrong. Stick around a while :D

    I was always asking myself, why "Mahoney"?

    I remember a guy in the old "Police Academy" flics that had that surname, and I think there was a cop in "Prison Break", but other than that it didn't ring a bell.

    Would you care to elaborate, to satisfy this old man's curiosity? :)

    Hey Jörg,

    although it´s not that easy, I´ll try to explain- Involving Thomas A. Edison..
    When I chose this nickname, (first time was to name a "user" for Windows´98)
    I was annoyed by the stupidity of those bluescreens and all that..

    So, trying to give that stupid machine back what it deserves, I tried
    to figure out sth. of utmost stupidity: Starting with the first name B/sth.,
    which (although having a completely different meaning to me) might be
    misunderstood and regarded as politically incorrect...
    So I cut that "B" down to how it´s spelled.
    Mahoney was intended to be a foolish, unique name...
    but it had existed long, long before.. (like Edison invented the light bulb
    simultaneously with some other guy..)

    Yes, Jörg, you got me: I must at least have heard it some 15 years before,
    at "Police Academy"! -But I found that out years later (was hard to believe..)
    In a foolish mood I tried to find another foolish name.. "Mongo Pokorny"
    introducing that to a friend of mine, he just said: "That´s the last name
    of an old classmate of mine..."

    Like Björk sang:
    "All the modern things like cars and such,
    have always existed.
    they´ve just been waiting in a mountain
    for the right moment..."

    But BeMaHoney can be understood as "lets be friends", which is
    kind of polite..

    like me, (trying to be..)

    Be ( :) )

    welcome :D I always read/understood it as "be my honey" ... :)

    p.s.: Pokorny is a czech / slovak name, the word means humble.

    Hey, a new face in the community! Welcome to the fun my friend! Oh, and thanks for clarifying your name. I always thought it was just a typing error of "Be my honey", but I never dared to ask.....;)

    I always assumed your surname was Mahoney and Be was a shortened version of your first! :eek:

    I think it was worth the efforts to make this video just to see some of our most established members making their introductions, at last!

    The (spiritual) honey of this forum you are, Be, no doubt about about that, and hony soit qui mal y pense.
