    How do you go about naming a developer?

    Say you come up with a nice little recipe, which is fair unique, and before you release a recipe for it, you'd like a punchy title... how would you come up with a name for it?


    I was thinking along the lines of something like:

    Athiril's Legendary Blue Thunder of the North.

    But I'm not sure..

    I think that might be one of the longer names out there!

    when reading patents, there really isn't a "name" for the recipe, so I make one based on ingredients or claims, and usually end in "fine" or "ol"

    from my chart http://www.apug.org/forums/attachmen...2&d=1264753658

    "superfine" 4,363,869

    "promisol" 2,757,091
    "H&W Control" 3,772,019
    "acitol" 5,376,610

    where can I find the instructions for "thunderol"?

    I agree with David!

    Athirol or Atherol.

    Maybe Atherol X?

    Some others are unprintable here or unmentionable.

    One, called Urinol by others, suggests Tinkinol to me!

    Best wishes.

    Athiril's first developer...

    Hmm...

    AD-1?

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?
