Why the Name "HarvilleQuarters?"

Why not?!

The short answer is - it's the best I could come up. "Quarters" by itself has too many different meanings and only us financial guys would think of it as the equivalent of three months. But I couldn't think of another word that means "three months." Appending other possibly appropriate words (RetirementQuarters, LivingQuarters, etc.) made me think of a place to stay while you're traveling.

So, as long as Quarters seemed to require a modifier, I figured I may as well use my own name. Since no one will have preconceived ideas of what it means, I can define it exactly as I want it to be.

And, who knows, maybe it will stick and I'll finally get my 15 minutes of fame.
