Actually, profile doesn't show their current title, either... you'll have to wait to see them online and use the "whois <player>" to see that. (or the ever useful who command, of course...)

Oh, it's not just a book. That's just the best picture I could find of a dozer. Fraggle Rock was a TV show from the mind of Jim Henson. Check out this site for more info: http://www.fragglerocker.com/. (Actually, this site has many more good pictures of dozers).
