I've used that "splat" for so many years I cannot remember. Until now I
was completely unaware of its origin. Nice to know.
Charlie had just left the COMMON board when I first joined it. It was a
pleasure watching him lend his managerial and people skills when
contentious items of discussion came up, and at that time there were
several. Charlie's technical prowess aside, he was a great man.

I too learned 'SPLAT' from Charlie. At one point in 1988 we hired a
developer from India who had no middle name. We used everyone's initials
for changes in programs and required 3 initials to keep things neat and
in line. So hers became G*P which as you can imagine was pronounced 'Gee
Splat Pee' :-) She is known by that even today over 30 years later.
