My name is Moon. I have been into computers and networking since usenet and 9600 baud with a wired telephone receiver and a commodore.

I use the name mqqn since in Asia the name Moon is very popular and common, so even though I have had a web site since 1996, I have not been able to get my own name as a username even back then.

I decided on mqqn to represent a (fail) replica of the old Moon Racing logo. Moon Racing had a "moon eyes" logo that was a popular racing decal in the late 50s and early 60s.

Enough. Enjoy my blog or not, you will always get my honest opinion, and nothing more.

best regards

    I drive to work. My wife and I both have our own vehicles, and we each commute (in directly opposite directions) to work.

    Blissfully consuming petroleum products, we drive a combined 143 miles in round numbers.

    According to statistics I was able to find on the internet with a quick google search (hey man - this a blog.....) 91 percent of Americans commute in their own vehicle.

    The average miles driven is 29.

    I have noticed while driving around that there are a significant number of guys that have repressed feelings of needing to be a law enforcement officer, but for some reason they were never allowed to carry a gun and perform in an official manner.

    These guys then buy themselves a "cruiser" to drive and install fake antennas ( in multiples) and dual spot-lamps in the a-pillar. Their cars invariably have a "plain clothes" look, with steel wheels and larger tires. ...
