since you bring it up, in my opinion "Analyze" suffers from
incomplete naming as well. analyze what? though i know i've
learned it twice before, to be honest i can't at the moment
remember what it does -- all i can think of is that it's going to
let me do some kind of science experiment. but it's something to
do with system statistics or resources right?
seems to me that names either have to be quite unrelated to
preconceptions of their meaning ("TamTam", "Pippy"), or fairly
descriptive ("Read", "Browse", "Calculate"). and as eduardo
points out, there aren't enough verbs to use verbs alone for
paul fox, pgf at foxharp.boston.ma.us (arlington, ma, where it's 52.5 degrees)
