Whoa -

What up? I was browsing the forum this morning and all of a sudden "Ruby Rulez" in big red free-hand letters was written over the Moose image...

Sure, I've heard some good things about Ruby - but is someone messing with the site?

Sincerely,
A Perplexed Richard Parker

So the moose's name is Ruby. Cheers for letting us know. Often wondered if it had a name.

The Moose's name is The Moose.

If I remember correctly (and it is possible I don't) The is short for Theodore.
