Sorry, Adam. JB's the *second* person, at best. I found and joined on my own,
and all because of you, indirectly, plus a web indexing service to be named
later. In April of '96 I got some silly email that had been forwarded a
million times, but had your name and Karmic handle on it. I was just beginning
my reign of "Random Acts Of Permutation, And Other Annagrammtic Forms Of
Terror, Yawn (TM)", so I came up with a few more for your name, and sent them
with a few others unsolicited to you. You dutifully FoRKed my mail:

Less than 6 weeks later, I was doing the ego-gratification thing, searching for
my own name, *VIA ALTA-VISTA* mind you!, and found the above-referenced item.
So, I looked around to see what this FoRK list was all about, and noticed a few
other anagram-laden entries. So I anagrammed F.o.R.K., and sent the list to
the Not So Plastic FoRK In Chief, who immediately FoRKed the anagrams:

Having gotten such an enthusiastic response, I subsequently enFoRKed myself.
My life hasn't been 3% the same since.


Is this, right here, the first time the word "stercoraceous" has been used on
this list? Benthic? Coprophagous? Hyoid? Einbahnstrasse? Fremitus?
Lucubrator? Micturation? Nudiustertian? Osculatory? Philtrum? Stertorous?
Trepanation? Trombidiasis? I Hope So, Yawn (TM).
