Computer Numerically Controlled Rumors…


I’m biased towards Rumor Lathe…

My vote stands.

Rumor mill just sounds too…plain. Change the name to anything else

I don’t think I could change it.
It was ‘Rumor Mill’ before I got here.

But… Brandon=CD god… i am so disillusioned now

/me shakes head


Notice that the poll asks whether the name should be changed to rumour lathe, not rumor lathe.

Lathe? bah, who needs lathes? just chuck the part in a hand held drill and have some one run it on high. Pull out your cut off bit (leatherman flat head screw driver) and have fun.

Instant (cheap) lathe.

Anywho, Rumor lathe does sound cool…

It was rumor mill at National back at 99’… A big piece of paper on a stand in front of Chief Delphi’s pit area… And beside it a poster of all CD posters’ picture, about a hand full of them I would say. You will have to ask all of those posters before you make a change to the name “rumor mill”.

It’s just a tradition you can’t easily change… Its like the definition of a “meter”:

The meter is the length of the path traveled by light in vacuum during a time interval of 1/299792458 of a second. (17th CGPM (1983), Rés. 1).

Or the definition of a “wheel”:

Main Entry: 1wheel

Ack! The British are at it again!

And I voted no just because like Ken said, it’s a tradition.
