This is my first attempt at trying to build a Wiki-like knowledge base on top of the Flutterby content management system.

This is a place for explanation, description and static links on a topic that's either too broad to be covered under a single link, or that you're just too lazy to find the real link to.

Back when we had Coyote Grits[Wiki], I used to bring Alec[Wiki] and Zack[Wiki], the sons of Jeanne[Wiki], and their friends over to the offices on Friday evenings to play games on the office LAN. One Monday, when we fired up Counter-Strike[Wiki] at lunch, Todd's computer was set to the alias "rat boy". The name stuck. We referred to the Friday night crowd as "the rat boys", and Alec[Wiki] became the "alpha rat boy", and when that experience disappeared with the demise of Coyote Grits[Wiki], the moniker was narrowed to just the two of them.
