  From  The  Free  On-line  Dictionary  of  Computing  (13  Mar  01)  [foldoc]: 
  {J.  Random}  Loser.  The  names  JRL  and  JRN  were  sometimes  used 
  as  example  names  when  discussing  a  kind  of  user  ID  used  under 
  {TOPS-10}  and  {WAITS}.  They  were  understood  to  be  the 
  initials  of  (fictitious)  programmers  named  "J.  Random  Loser" 
  and  "J.  Random  Nerd".  For  example,  if  one  said  "To  log  in 
  type  log  one  comma  jay  are  en"  (that  is  "log  1,JRN"),  the 
  listener  would  have  understood  that  he  should  use  his  own 
  computer  ID  in  place  of  "JRN".
