    They say that if you play a Windows Install CD backwords, you hear satanic messages. That's nothing; play it forward and it installs Windows.

    Who said anything about disliking the name? It actually means something very normal in German (I don't remember what it is off the top of my head).

    well all languages have their funny things about them. hehe latin for example i think penus or penis means pine tree and the word facio facere means to do or to make which is where we get that word in the first place haha.

    the Latin word is as such:

    facio, facere, facivi, facimus

    Conjugated as such:

    facio - I do
    facis - you do
    facit - he/she/it does
    facimus - we do
    facistis - you all do
    faciunt - they do

    facibam - I was doing
    facibas - you were doing
    facibat - he/she/it was doing
    facibamus - we were doing
    facibatis - you all were doing
    facibant - they were doing

    facivi - I did
    facivisti - you did
    facivit - he/she/it did
    facivimus - we did
    facivistis - you all did
    faciverunt - they did

    I would do the present participles, past participles, and future tenses but I havent been in a Latin class in almost 2 years now so my mind hurts just by doing that....

    I was actoully reffering to that when I typed out the name I got a "I am silly I am silly I am silly" etc instead...
