If, for example, I were to put my program code into a file
I'd need to ensure that there's not another Frank out there who writes his
code in a file with the same name. This would often lead to confusion and
sometimes even prevent programs from working.
This is why the java programming language has the concept of path names.
Usually, a path name begins with the company's URL backwards. In the above
example, my path name would be
Ebay programmers, for example, would use
This is how java will distinguish the files at runtime even if they have the
same file name.
For this reason I would like to register a domain name for the Einstein
project. A nice one, of course, would be
Of course, einstein.com/de/net/org/whatever has been taken for a long time.
Since I'm not very inventive when it comes to ear-catching domain names, I
herewith ask for the list's help.
Please think up a cool domain name. If it is still available, post it here.
It might give others ideas for thinking up more names.
The domain name should be one that most people will associate with a)
Newtons b) Einstein c) Android. Android would be nice, but it's not
If we find a good name, I will take care of registering and financing the
domain. All I ask is that you make sure the name is still available (.org or
.net preferred) before you post it to the list.
I might not have a chance to read my mail for the next seven days. If this
happens, I'll take care of things when I return.
