Don: what a devilish thing you did!!!!

Post by fern » Sun Jan 24, 2010 3:59 pm

I am talking of Komodo. Even without the name I like more- Occam- I cannot denoy it is a monster.
A friend of mine, a Phd of Londol School of Economics, asked me yesterday which engine to get between the hundreds in the freeware area and I say to him, "the easiest of them all, Komodo".

I am already laughing.

Between Larry and I we had quite a discussion on the name. Occam came real close and almost became the name. Barracuda was also considered among other fish names, but Komodo finally won out.

I'm glad. Because I'd back a dragon over a fish any day. You just need a really fearsome pic for the engine now i.e. NOT one like your profile pic:)

I liked Komodo best from those three too. Occam seems so passe.

i actually prefer occam in this case as it seems to fit the engine well. but either way i'm quite happy with it. :D
