I agree, but think it is just as confusing as having Telecom in there... 
What is in bold and we have not changed, however, is OTP. We will change 
it back when this debate comes to an end. As mentioned, I want to 
summarize all the comments as soon as I have a second over.


PS. The Dr. Dobbs article is generating about 200 unique users a day, 
bringing the average number of unique users to the site to about 500. 
Thanks to the reddit effect on all the new articles, tutorials, how tos, 
we've had a constant influx of 400 - 500 users a day, 50% of which are 
returning ones.
