My first experience with the internet was as a small child interested in LEGO. To use their website, I had to come up with a username, but I didn't have any ideas. So, I chose three random letters, “imp.” That was too short for their username requirements, so I added an “i,” but that was taken by another user. So, I added an “a,” and used “impia” for a while. Later, the website went under a redesign. When I tried to log in, it said that the username/password combination was invalid. I immediately assumed that I had to re-create my account, and the new one had another “a” on the end (I now believe that I had simply typed my password incorrectly). The same process happened a few weeks later, and I added yet another “a,” resulting in the final “impiaaa.”
The Boatcake is not a person. The Boatcake is not a boat. The Boatcake is not a cake. The Boatcake is, in fact, not edible. The Boatcake is not even a thing. The Boatcake is not a lie. The Boatcake is not Cthulu. The Boatcake is coming for you…
I originally found the term when playing around with the Flowerewolf widget. It came up with the combination “boatcake” (boat + oatcake), and I loved it. I came up with the saying, “The Boatcake is coming for you…” myself, after finding that the word can be spoken with quite an ominous tone, and realizing that it needed a mysterious lore to go along with it. I used it for the name of this website because it is unique to me, and expresses my slightly odd personality.
Purple/violet, particularly the one you see when highlighting the navigation links, is my favorite color. The background color is that color darker, and the light yellow foreground and dark yellow text is complementary to the purple.
