Name change

No, I haven't changed my name to a SQL injection attack yet. I'm referring to the blog title. I thought I'd capitalize on my geeky initials.

Incidentally, I've always considered my surname to be of Scandinavian origin. My Dad's family come from Formby just north of Liverpool, which is traditionally considered to be a Viking village. The -by at the end is a bit of clue for starters. My favourite explanation is that "Rimmer" means "Poet" and comes from the same root as "Rhyme". So I was very interested to learn recently that there is a traditional form of Icelandic poetry called "Rimur". Draw your own conclusions...
