Since the name could sound a bit greedy, let me explain. Grabanickel is the name of the hill where I grew up. So named as years ago there used to be a coal mine at the bottom of the hill. Day workers would come and work for a nickel a day. The hill became known as "grab-a-nickel", and eventually, grabanickel.
Grabanickel offers many sites and services. A gateway to OpenSimulator virtual worlds via the hypergrid, game servers for Minecraft, AssaultCube, and MFL Grid, forums, software links, video links, Mumble voice server, and a collection of free downloads of Mumble skins, Minecraft skins, original music, graphics, textures and scripted items for OpenSim that I have created along the way. Additional links to other sites/services can be found to the left on the main menu.
