Author, Draftsman, Unix Fiend, former SP/4 Ronald Bacci

Ron is sometimes Gallootish though small of stature!  He used to run the Berkeley Earthquake Institute and sent out predictions by phone, then email, the nano-second after a quake hit!  Infallible!  Also, one of your editor's oldest friends.  Check out his parody/tribute to Jonathan Livingston Seagull HERE.

Suggested Recruit from Dave Cook

Mr. Cook has suggested this elephant as a member.  I do think this particular beast is distinctly qualified for membership.  In addition, I am nominating Mr. Cook himself for membership, despite his clear lack of Gallootish proportions.  He thinks like a Galloot!

"I always thought of myself as a Galloot.  Without any support or other guidelines, I've always tried to maintain the standards ( or maybe I should say I always ignored the standards!) that constitutes Galootness.  Please accept my humble entry into the vast greater realm that a Galoot represents!"


What better Big Galloot is there?

What is a Big Galloot?

Wikipedia says, in part: "Within Internet-based woodworking communities, a Galoot is a handtool aficionado, specifically old handtools. This is contrasted with users of any hand tools who are called neanderthals in a number of internet woodworking communities . . . Galoot should not be confused with Galloot, although pronounced the same. 'Galloot' is a word used by the cartoon character "Yosemite Sam" - he frequently refers to "Bugs Bunny" as a 'long eared idjut galloot'."
Web references to Galoot or Galloot: A band named Big Galoot can be found at

A Seattle Times article describes Big Galoots, in part: "I know English majors will point out that Big Galoots is actually two words, but you never hear anyone refer to someone as just a Galoot. It is properly used in the following sentence: 'Ah, get outta here, ya Big Galoot.' This sentence is usually uttered in a black-and-white movie by some woman (properly called a 'dame') to a guy packing heat and wearing a double-breasted suit. The Big Galoot has just done something endearing like smack someone around, mow down a rival with a Tommy gun or tell the dame he is sweet on her"
