"Ovalkwiki" is a weird name
It comes from this drink in the the comic strip. It is called "Ovalkwik." Howard is not the sort of person to let the serendipity of shared syllables go unexploited, so when he needed a name for the Schlock Mercenary Wiki, "Ovalkwiki" was the name that stuck. He's had ovalkwiki.com parked for the better part of five years now, and he STILL thinks it's clever.
