Message 1043260 - Posted: 20 Oct 2010, 20:07:17 UTC

As Jeff mentioned in the Tech News forum today (status 10/20/2010), an additional server has been ordered to replace Mork, thanks in part to those many users who have answered the call during the latest donation drive. The newest member to the server family will have to have a name, so this thread is to come up with said name.

First off, since Mork has been such a hard and valued worker though these many years that I think he should be the sire of the newest addition to the Seti family and his name carried forth, say as in MorkII?

He'll need to be a strong, uncomplaining and tireless workhorse.

How about Robby, from the robot embodiment of Shakespeare's Ariel in Forbidden Planet.

Just to be clear here, the FIRST new server will be Oscar, in honour of a departed friend of our main fund raiser (and hell raiser). We are talking about the SECOND new server here.

I remember an episode where Mork and Mindy had a egg (sort of). Did it have a name?

T1000
a really crappy Pontiac remake of a chevy Chevette or a Liquid nye impossible to destroy robot(robot because the T1000 didnt have any flesh which to me defeats the logic of the first movie which clearly states that only flesh or something covered in flesh could travel back in time)
