Dave Taht is crashing in my basement again. While he’s here Dave is planning to cut another release of CeroWRT (the third one to issue from this basement, actually), and he has decided it needs a name.
And, well, “the release from ESR’s basement” just lacks a certain…zing.
Obviously, this means my basement needs a name. Something it probably should have acquired sooner, actually, as it is a rather storied locale. Often a resting place for traveling hackers weary of the wars; home to one of the larger collections of SF east of the Misty Mountains, and (as a commenter once noted) “obviously part of a previously unmapped tunnel between the Great Underground Empire and Colossal Cave”
So we have decided to name the basement after its most frequent inhabitant. Yes, that would be the entity most likely to sleep on top of you if you’re sleeping in the daybed…our very own fuzz elemental and companion-to-hackers, Sugar. (Who must telepathically know I am writing about her as she has just materialized in my desk well to snuggle up to my right foot.)
So, um, when you see that the next CeroWRT release is tagged “Sugarland”, do not think of a town in Texas or a valley in the Great Smoky Mountains. Somewhere in Malvern, a cat is purring. And she purrs just for you. Or your router. Whatever….
