: That posting is mostly correct I think. The wallop part isn't though - that was a term for beer lomg before Mr Codd.
Interesting thought - the part of Belgium near Brussels is called Wallonia and the language Walloon. That area has a long and distinguished history of brewing - is there some link between the idea of Wallop and Walloon?
