I was Bamboo Cougar from '08 to '13 on many forums in the flight sim world. The 'handle' comes from the Haida in Prince Rupert, BC Canada where I spent a few glorious months working with the Coast Guard on software solutions and flying a Beaver part time. During that time I divided my free hours between an aluminum boat and fishing for Dungness Crab and teaching Tai Chi to some First Nations folks. While doing a Tai Chi set out in the wilds with 2 elders and a teenager, a cougar (mountain lion) ran directly behind me and on into the forest. This led to the 'spirit name' that was given me.
I choose now to shorten it to "bc", as it's what I and many others use most of the time anyhow. It leaves nothing behind from the honour of being named by my good friends in PR but does make it easier for all.
