What’s It All Mean?!?

So Chris wants to know what raoli means 🙂 As a reminder, the tagline did warn you that these musing would be random and only occassionally coherent…

There’s no deep, personal meaning behind the name. It’s not something profound in a cool foreign language. It’s a typo.

Yup, a typo.

About a month or two ago, I went to get my daily dose of Railhead Design when both my brain and fingers went out to lunch. When I regained control of my faculties, I looked down and saw “raoli” typed into Chimera’s address bar. I stared at it for a second and though it might be an interesting name for a project I was developing. A quick check showed that raoli.com was available. Another quick check, this time with Google, didn’t turn up anything that made me want to dump the name, so I filed it away in the mental rolodex for future use.

As it happened, my ideas for a weblog came to fruition faster than the aforementioned project, so I just repurposed the name when it came time to take this puppy online.

Now, I just need to come up with a name for the aforementioned project. I’m sure my fingers and brain can handle that, though.

    Dammit. I was trying to think of something witty to make it, based on your tagline.

    Random And Occasionally…” huh?

    Lame Interjections? Liquored Influence? Likeable Indeed?
