It's hard to say who exactly 'recruited' me . . . . I first heard it about it from the Cruciverb-L list, and Chex and En were the first people to tell me anything specific about it. Then I met a few at the Stamford tournament, and talked about it with etc. and decided for sure to join. So I guess I derive most directly from etc. and Stamford.
My nom [. . .] is a variant of CACIQUE, a kind of tropical oriole. I picked it because it's the highest opening move in Scrabble, and I think it's a very pretty-looking word. It's also the name of my computer (it was that before it was my nom).
