Keep it, it's the person behind the name that counts, I think most of us go through cycles of thinking about changing our username. One question though, almost every time I see your avatar I'm left thinking...."Why", is there a story or reason behind it?

I just like that movie. :p I think it started out as a joke on the LPF IRC chat channel after finding the video so I made a .gif. :p

It's from this video:

As an evolution to your nickname I'd suggest an elegant change to:

®evolution

Also, think about how you want to be perceived, as a name is one of the first things people see when they meet you online. I know I look at the poster before the message... everytime. And funny thing is, I read it in the attitude I perceive you to have from past posts.... [cough] some of you sound better than others :p [/cough]

I thought I was the only one who did this. Do you read posts in the voice you imagine that person to have too? This is actually the first time I used this particular handle "Javalin" before this I went by HotRice for years :)

I read that you opted to keep your name at least for now and I agree. You chose your user name for some reason or another (even if it was just because you couldn't come up with a better one) And until you find "The One" then 2007Revolution works perfectly fine.

As mentioned earlier, I too like your avatar, I smile every time I see it.

Yeah, your name is a little... dated... but easy to recognize. I'd say keep it.
