I dunno...I know of him from one or more technical mailing lists.

Perhaps both. Maybe he's bogarting the hive-queen...

"bogarting". Define please.

I'm guessing terrorist's meaning would be the same as "buggering the hive-queen".

When I was younger, bogarting meant getting out of some place in a hurry.

I was thinking of Humphrey Bogart.

That would be where the name in the refernce would originate, yes.

"Bogart" as in a methodology of smoking wherein the object is held in close proximity. "Don't Bogart that joint!"

Sheesh, I hate explaining these references.

Ender is a fictional character by the Mor(m)on author Orson Scott Card who also wrote a series of pseudo-scifi on Alan Maker, seventh son of a seventh son which supposedly gives paranormal powers.

Handles often tell a lot about a person if you can peer behind the facade.

Aaahhh.

Well, you do have to remember that you have a few years on some of us, so a good many of the references won't necessarily work on us.

Well, not just years but local. California is a very different society than Indiana or New Yawk but yea, I was using uncommon references, sorry.

And Humphrey Bogart was way before my time...

Was he? Hmm...didn't realize.

Now it is clear. Sorry you had to explain your reference, terrorist.

terrorist,
Yes, Campagnolo is a parts maker.. the best cycling parts in the world are made by them (as far as raceing goes)
When I picked this alias 10 years ago, it was a statement of quality, durability, and being the best. (also, I rode a lot at the time... ;)

"Bogarting" is a 70's reference.
