What is Illex?
I used to fish commercially in Alaska, and the bait we used on the longliner was a type of squid called Illex argentinus. This was more or less at the dawn of the Internet, so when it came time to choose an email address I thought of illexsquid. I sort of had the idea that it had two unusual letters, an x and a q, and that might reduce my spam. Needless to say that didn't work, but the name stuck, and after dropping the "squid" it does have a somewhat refined aesthetic to it.

NOTE: If I attended your game or event, and it is not posted here, please email me
