Did you mean ‘Sid’ instead of ‘Ssid’? Or was that an allusion to wireless ‘SSID’
You hit it on the head. Most of the character names in the strips are considered Meaningful Names. Basically, they are names that have a meaning specific to their character, or a reference to the computer world in general. One of the fun aspects (and challenges) of the strip is to try to tie-in most character and places to computers–either referencing specific hardware/programs/functions, or using general names such as computer companies or model names.
You can find a lot of these references in our Wiki. Also, when our forums reopen, we have a “Laugh Olympics” area where our readers have fun earning points if they can guess the computer and pop-culture references peppered throughout the strip. ~Mirz
