The story of ToxMox begins over 20 years ago...
Back in 7th grade my best friend got me heavily into the BBS scene. In one of my math books someone had scrawled the following phrase in pencil: "Sight unseen. Sound unheard. Who could it be but The Hing Hoo Bird!"
Thinking this was hilarious I decided to use The Hing Hoo Bird as my handle. My best friend was The Atomic Scientist.
Within a year we both wanted cooler sounding names. We started combining harmless things with nasty things and our new nicknames were born: Me: Toxic Marshmallow. Him: Regurgitated Fluff.
We started a little digital art group called RAD (Radioactive Artistic Designers) and released 8 RADDEMOs featuring our creations.
At this point we merged with another bigger art group called SDA (Silicon Dream Artists) and became Senior Staff members. Things were moving fast. Shortly thereafter we merged into iCE (Insane Creators Enterprise) and became Senior Staff.
Years later when I was in college we used to chill on #ice on EFNET on IRC all the time. Another senior staff member Friar Tuck got sick of calling me Toxic Marshmallow and came up with the shorter ToxMox and it has stuck ever since.
