Engineers of

And we are... The BIG ENZ!

NERDS acronym got me started. Here's ours :) Actually, the term "Big Ends" refers to the crankshaft bearing end of the connecting rod in a typical car engine. The other end of the connecting rod has a small end and attaches to the piston. How Stuff Works has cute animated graphics of what we're talking about so check it out. The other idea behind the name (well, we're complicated kinds of guys) is the world famous band from New Zealand - Split Enz. The ENZ is part of kiwi culture.
