    As a kid I loved physics, and was completely obsessed with how cool potential vs. kinetic energy was. Then it was my email address, AIM, Flickr username, etc. So it just stuck as a handle I used on reef forums too.

    A guy called ashburn on a forum about "reefers"? Sounds suspicious to me!

    JVU are (sort of) my initials. Lots of friends and coworkers call me JVU, I think mostly because "John" is too common :)

    The extra " ." after the JVU was just because the system wouldn't let me use less than a 5-letter name which I thought was odd since I swear I've seen other users with short usernames. I use JVU on other sites like R2R and RC. If a site admin can change it, that would be great.
