    Name my server

    The server program I'm writing is going really well, and I think the time has come to name it. I was thinking we could name it Sharkbait then get in a circle and all yell, "Sharkbait, who ha ha!", but then I realized that I watch too much TV.

    To give you a quick run down of how I came up with these names, Zi is the rootword for typical homesteads and villages in Zulu culture. Every word relating to that is based off it. umuZi is just a regular noun, ukuZi is the infinitive of the verb, etc...

    The two names I've used so far while naming source files, etc... are umuZi and Zi. I just pulled umuZi quickly out of a dictionary because I needed something quickly, before finding later what the actual root was. umuZi's kind of grown on me, but Zi would be more correct, and I think, in time, I could grow to love Zi too... It just sounds Asian... Not that that's bad...

    But let me know what you think, and maybe suggest something too. If you're interested www.isiZulu.net is a pretty good online dictionary for English-Zulu. And I'll most likely just scrap the crazy capitalization rules they use. None of this capital z in the middle of the word crap (as shown in the poll)

    Well I just checked on the search engine results - seeing what kind of stuff was associated with each name, and it defiantely seems that Zi is a more Asian-like term. Sounds like I'm going with Umuzi.
