Ya. So in 1995 or so, I was introduced to the wide world of IRC and needed a nick. Now, at this time the reason why ended up on IRC was because I had started working on RC5-56
with the folks at distributed.net
. At the time, I was an avid reader of Scott Adams. Because the RC5 project was also known as the Bovine RC5 project at the time, and cows were definately cool, I realized that Dilbert
(tm) was missing a character. There was Dilbert, Dogbert, Catbert, Ratbert, and Bob but no ruminants, so I decided to spin off a new character called Cowbert.
