what is an omino?
the site name is taken from the word polyomino, which refers
to any shape constructed from squares. a domino is a polyomino
sometimes called a 2-omino. the seven shapes encountered in the game "tetris"
are all tetrominoes sometimes called 4-ominoes.
the domain name was an amazing gift from carrie cordeiro
in 1996 when getting a domain name was really hard and really unusual.
