What happens when the next child comes along? Presumably a new version will be an upgrade and therefore they lose the right to the original version!

Presumably the poor kid will be relagated to a dusty cupboard where old software goes to be out of site (until the tidy up and throw out).

Seriously though how many parents actually think about the consequences when they inflict names on their offspring!

I once new a teacher called Rhoda, she married a friend called Andrew Dick.

Needless to say he adopted her surname after the wedding otherwise she would never have gone to school again!

With the hyphenated names it could get pretty weird eventually.  You could get a person with family name something like Butcher-Baker-Candlestick Maker .NET 10.9

Hmmmmmm, I don't see the big deal.  The dude just came out of the dark ages of using Roman Numerals.  If he named the kid Jon Blake Cusack.dll that might be a different story(or even a whole library.)


If he did that, the "terrible twos" would give a whole new meaning to the term "DLL Hell". And 2.0 might give a new meaning to "terrible twos", now that I think about it.  :P

Not only that but if somebody moves out of the house a message might pop up "This shared library is not being used by anyone.  Delete it?"  :)

So the kid is bound to be a stool pigeon?

This reminds me of a cartoon I saw in Playboy.  A flying saucer is coasting just above the tree tops.  The alien and his wife are obviously on vacation.  The husband says to the wife, to her disbelief, "this is a planet where everything they eat turns to sh*t!"  She's utterly horrified!! :)
