"Cool Happenings" in need of better name

Please help me.

You all noticed the writeups I posted in my blog, right? Maybe I should give some of you a click or two to catch up right away.


OK, now we are all up to speed.

Please help me. I am very much tempted to write more of those. And I need to find a better name to call them. The current name is not so practical, I decided. Frits is now featuring my blog on the front page and all it says there now is "Featured: rik's blog". That is not very specific and it does not explain why it's featured. And it has the word "rik" in it 8-( .

That's why we need a better name. One that will stick. One that we can use throughout the site and maybe even elsewhere.

Before I pick a name and try to stick with it, I would like to hear your suggestions. You are creative people. You are, after all, robot builders.

Please mind that the new name must:

  • be short
  • describe the content (you may decide what that means to you
  • not be rik specific

And it would be nice if the name:

  • does not suck
  • indicates that this is periodical content (although that is a blatant lie)
  • would tie it in with letsmakerobots.com (for the outside world)
  • is not (too) geeky/techy/nerdy/robotical (we have enough of that going around)
  • is not a big play on words (dito)
  • could be easily pictured in a logo

Thanks for the help,


Update 18 nov:

Inspired by your responses and by a sleepless night with a scrap of paper on the night stand, I came up with some sort of ideas cloud. (high resolution here)


Still open for more suggestions. Or preferences.

Update 22 nov:

Thank you all for helping. I've made up my mind. It shall henceforth be known as

"The Pulse"

(Sensing the living LMR community since 2008w43).

I Figured the word "periodical" would be somewhat redundant with "Pulse". I also liked the brevity of it. The subtitle might evolve over time. Check out the first (real) edition of The Pulse.

Good to see that not all the ideas on that piece of paper went to waste:
"The LMR (family) Scrapbook".

I still need a better (version of this crappy) logo/banner. Who will take on this challenge?

LMR - lots more robots?

Ummm..  LMR heartbeat

LMR pulse

ok I give up, this is worse than guessing BOA'a first chip!

actually, I don't think there's anything better than Magic Blue Smoke

Bots & Pieces

Now I have to add "Pik" or "Pick" to the list? --The little notebook I bought to keep my international pee-pee slang translations in is filling up fast! --Yup, seriously I do have a notebook for this...

Sorry, Rik... BTW why isn't there a "C"? 

We don't need no stinking C. Plus: that saves you space in your precious notebook. I doubted not a moment that you would actually keep one. I even guessed as much when writing my earlier response.

Not that I dislike these posts, but I really don't think there is anything wrong with "Cool Happenings on LMR"

Did I read "Lets Mock Rabbits" correctly on your sheet of paper?
