The origin of "Rabi"


When David H. was a bit younger, right around the time personal computers came into being, he longed for one of his very own. There was this one particular machine he had his eyes on, one which came with a game called “Hammurabi,” named for the ancient king of Babylon . His enthusiasm over the anticipation of one day playing Hammurabi on his very own personal computer was the fuel for the ribbing he took from his brother, Michael, and their cousin, Christopher. They would constantly call David, “Hammurabi!” Well, David H. never got the computer with the Hammurabi game, but he did get another computer with different games. However, the “Hammurabi” nickname stuck, and was later shortened to “Rabi.”
