Old family motto from Scotland. Bydand = Abiding, remaining. stand ready, and several other translations which nobody seems to know for sure which is 100% correct. Any of them appealed to me so, I adopted it for my screen name online.
So does this mean that I finally found someone who doesn't consider me crazy for spending money on the 75th Anniversary Edition of the movie? I have to sit down and watch the movie at least once a week!

My user name has it's roots in the days when I used to play BattleTech (tabletop wargame), in that I named my first ever 'mechpilot "Dallas Sukerkin".
His name derived from the idea that as humanity spread out into the galaxy, the various cultures would intermingle and meld. So he had a North American matralinial line and a Central Russian patralinial line Thus, Russian surname and a given name taken from an American city.
Of course the rational for the name came after a bit of thought. At the start he was just 'Dallas' as I'd watched "Alien" the night before and the character of the Nostromo captain struck me as cool, so I pinched both his persona and his name .
When the internet came along and I began to surf, I needed an on-line, unique, identifier and as noone it seems has ever used Sukerkin but me it was an easy fit . At the time too, I was playing so much BattleTech that I would answer as easily to Dallas Sukerkin as my real name; so no danger of ever forgetting it (or the associated passords) .
BITE YOUR TONGUE!!!!
