Jeff, it's probably the same person with a different name. I wouldn't worry about it.
Maybe he doesn't want us Wattflyers to know he's old, or the RCGers to know he crashes-a-lot...;)

Haha, well said. I'm in the same boat. Without a car I can't even get out of the city. I've got a decent view of downtown Ottawa and Canada's parliament buildings here though...but that gets old fast.
