    From Wiki:

    It is sometimes assumed that the name Ogg (1) comes from the character of Nanny Ogg (2) in Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novels. However, it derives from ogging, jargon from the computer game Netrek (3) which came to mean doing something forcefully, possibly without consideration of the drain on future resources.
