J. Random Hacker

J. Random Hacker: [MIT] /J rand'm hak'r/ n. A mythical figure
   like the Unknown Soldier; the archetypal hacker nerd.  See
   random, Suzie COBOL.  This may originally have been
   inspired by `J. Fred Muggs', a show-biz chimpanzee whose name was a
   household word back in the early days of TMRC, and was
   probably influenced by `J. Presper Eckert' (one of the co-inventors
   of the electronic computer).
