I think you should stay away from the gaming terms (hey I like em but then you're aiming for certain crowd).

I thoughtof lots of animals already ... 2 favorites (jerboa -- a small long legged mouse that err jumps I guess ... also there was this picture of mean looking fishin one of my students dictionaries of a "Viperfish" mean thing that lives in the deap sea areas with fangs.

No pun intended, I'm sure. :p But to me, while being a very cool word, Vortex implies a swirling mass of chaos, which is exactly the opposite of the goals of this project.

PS - the "log me in automatically on each visit" thing hasn't been working for me the last few days - anyone else?

Eh, no one is paying any attention to the poll anymore anyway. And I would say that the devs do have final say on the name.

I think that Osmosis would be cool... The whole absorbtion thing, and the association with Information that it sometimes has (Learning by osmosis)

I don't really care as long as the name has no more than three p's, and none are consecutive.

I'll just say this now, just to get it out of the way, even if it is OT. I think (other people may not) that I try not to take things to seriously when I know people are joking, and I give out my fair share too. But the thing is, when I DO get annoyed, it tends to build up, and right at the moment I have had almost enough, and I am this close to saying something that will almost certainly get me banned from this board. Just stating the facts, don't take it as an invitation to an argument.

Oh, and it's not "my" name either.
