<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">As a side note, ever wonder where the term 'hyena' came from? It was back in the day when many wahm's used traditional shopping cart software for their stores. A widely anticipated stocking could bring hundreds of shoppers into a shop, waiting to see if the wahm would be stocking at that particular moment. Sometimes the traffic would start just after the wahm started stocking and a few items had appeared, and sometimes it was just a matter of someone noticing store traffic was a little high, then posting on a message board asking why, before a store would be inundated with curious onlookers and serious stalkers. This finally prompted Kendell, maker of Freshies diapers, to comment that the stalkers were like a pack of hyenas waiting for their kill. Obviously, the term has stuck</td>
