nickfork-#ubuntu-offtopic a silly little game for offtopic channels ONLY. The way it works is you pick out a random nick from the /names list (works best if they're idle), have a bunch of people switch to something similar (scrambles, reverse, 1337speak), and see how long it takes for the real person to catch on. Have fun! Added by tonyyarusso
