Forgive me if this is answered in the documentation somewhere (but please 
point me at it if so, because I haven't been able to find it), but where do the 
terms "bump", "peek", "splice" and "stare" come from?

Personally I don't find them particularly intuitive to comprehend, in terms of 
what they're doing in the course of an SSL connection, so I'm just wondering 
where they came from and why they were chosen as the best way to describe 
what's going on at various points in the communication?



You can tell that the day just isn't going right when you find yourself using 
the telephone before the toilet.
