   An appropriate xml-dev project

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

A few weeks ago, Corel aquired SoftQuad, and a few days thereafter Corel and I parted ways.

I expect to be self-employed for a while, and any business needs a name. I just registered frankrichards.com, but how bland can you get?

What makes this an appropriate xml-dev question is my avocation...I live on a tree farm. So on the weekends I do tree transformations with a chainsaw, and 
regard an acorn as a constructor. Somewhere, not too far from the English language is the word or phrase that will tie the two types of tree together, be 
unforgettable for the smile or groan it produces, and if it helps me minimize taxes by cancelling income and expense between the two operations that's even 

I don't believe that anywhere in the world is there a group with a better selection of vocabulary, love of language, and unique mental processes, to find that 
particular play on words. So please turn those minds to the question.

Fine Print:

All submissions will be published on the resulting website.  Honorable mentions will posted here. I will assume that people will prefer to be credited, but will 
honor any requests for anonymity. Winner gets dinner at the next conference we're both at. I get to use the winning entry, all others revert to their originators 
after publication on the site and possibly xml-dev.

Thanks in advance,

Frank Richards
