Just a quick blast-from-the-past for anyone who owned a C64 and was on Compunet (long before this new-fangled academic Berners-Lee nonsense - harumph), when Xyzz nicks were all the rage. Tony Crowther was Ratt, Rob Hubbard was Robb, there was Bogg, Jonn etc...I just added an extra 'n' to my real name and it's been stuck there for over 20 years. A promise of a ++ goes to anyone who's still got the *original* Ratt+Benn demo :)
PS. Hey - what a great node! ++George
