Ok, I can enlighten you. silverback came from a joke about me being a strong person (big guy, big ego
) and having a white spot on my otherwise dark hair. So my girlfriend said I was like a silverback gorilla.
As for my sig lines, they are simple quotes.
But I can also shed light on some others:
- the riddle of steel quote is from the movie "Conan the Barbarian"
- fyunchclick is from the book "The Mote in God's Eye" by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle, who are an ingenious writing team in Science Fiction.
A fyunchclick is a member of an alien caste of negotiators/diplomats. The "click" part is descriptive of a clicking sound you make in your throat or with the tongue. I highly recommend the book!
Few people think more than two or three times a year; I have made an international reputation for myself by thinking once or twice a week. -George Bernard Shaw
Go is a pursuit of such value that one can devote a lifetime to it and have nothing to regret. Why not, then, challenge the limit of your powers. -Toshiro Kageyama 7-Dan
