Why the name "root.cellar"? It all started years ago with a mailing list I started and administered, The Usual Suspects. At one point I needed to change hosts and had an impulse for a new list name as well. I settled on COGITATERZ, a computeriZed and sPBUDDYfied derivative of Descartes' COGITO ERGO SUM, for spudly buddy thinkerz, don't you know.

Being the list admin, TATER-HEAD seemed a good nick for myself. Then, when blogging came along, I wanted a blog name that had some continuity with the mailing list. What do TATERZ concern themselves with?
