Back in the day, you couldn't just register con.ca, unless you were a business spanning several Canadian provinces. In our case, the domain would have been con.tor.on.ca. In retrospect, that would've been cool to have now, but back then it made no sense. Since con.org, .com and .net were already taken, (which is amazing when you consider that nobody was on the Internet back then) capnasty.org was picked. It was snappy and easy to remember. Although con.ca was eventually acquired when the regulations behind owning a Canadian domain were relaxed, the name capnasty has stuck.
