The Legend of How Cheshire Got Named "Ozzie"

While Richard Cheshire was attending a college in western New York state, he knew more about the computer than the system administrator. However, the SysAdmin insisted that people call him a Wizard, even though Chesh knew more than this clown about the system. Chesh could derive solutions just by following the logic of the problem (a talent that has made him a "dangerous character" to many agencies). Since the SysAdmin didn't like anyone but him being called the System Wizard, Chesh was called "The System Oz" (the references being to the Frank Baum book, and MGM movie, "The Wizard Of Oz"). This became "Ozzie" pretty easily.
