Nan is a nickname for Fernande, the French feminization of Ferdinand. I know this cause it's my grandmother's name. In other words, while Bobby Tables is xkcd, there are plenty of other real-life variations. For example, some system allow DEL as a shortcut for DELETE. I can imagine problems with "Del Monte". :-)

My criteria for good software:
  1. Does it work?
  2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?
