Opera 10 final was announced on twitter over 6 hours ago. http://twitter.com/opera
There it is! The most intelligent 1st post ever created.
Although the analogy of the consequences of using a, admittedly daft, word is a little over the top.
One of the places I worked also went with the heavenly bodies. However, after Charon (mis-pronounced by everyone as Sharon) we suddenly acquired a Tracey!
As an aside, I've worked at 6 places since, and in none of the places can I remember what a single server did. I still know exactly what Pluto, Arcturus, Jupiter, Altair, Siriius etc all did. It may have been a PITA for new people to work out where a server was, but once you had it, you knew exactly what each server did, and where it was in a memory aided way, not just a "work it out in my head from the name" way. LDNPSDB001 may be clearly(!) a London Production Server with a Database on it, but Arcturus was a DB server for Marketing running DB2, and key to month end campaigns.
Now, how many people are just going to yahoo to search for other search engines to see what happens??
