I always go for the strange and unusual names to make sure nobody else has them. This one comes from the 1977 movie Jabberwocky directed by Terry Gillium from the comedy group Monty Python. The character WatDabney is in the city and is the famous inventor of the "Inverted Firkin". I just like saying "Inverted Firkin" so I used the name WatDabney.

Hello WatDabney and :thumbsup: to Bleeping Computer.

Be sure to check out the New User Orientation and the excellent Tutorials.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

—George Bernard Shaw
