I think you're flogging a dead moose on that one, Grogyan. At least you're consistent. :)

I like it.

Has a certain ring to it.

You...are...you?

And I hear it's based on ancient Sumerian or something (not Polynesian, which is why "Tane" doesn't work).

A point to consider is this: How many times do you expect to actually say it? I bet 99% of the times you use it will be in writing. :wink:

What a great reason for not making it catchy!

Fun fact (or at least learned myth): "SCSI" is pronounced "skuzzy" because the attendees didn't want to offend with the salacious-sounding alternative.

If you want catchy try spelling OSUL fast. English is not my native language so I could be wrong but doesn't it sound like "I wish you well"? :)

I suspect that I will be using voice chat more when i return to the cavern, so, I reckon, verbally 25% or more of the time

Coincidentally, MOUL said out loud sounds like "mule"

About the DRC Ron is sad, Sydney is laughing her rump off. It's very confusing. The gender thing, Sydney is still female I believe.

In my mind it is and always will be just URU. :wink:

Hmmm.....wonder what URU:Open Source would sound like as an acronym. URUOS. Would that be to close to Ursus? :lol:
