I think that it is time to give BigBro and Hanford proper nicknames befitting their positions as leaders of this TC tribe. Oh sure, they may resist, but let 'em have it anyway. I went to this site to look up a few words: http://www.hisurf.com

I plugged in a couple of keywords. Try it yourself. I think a vote is in order. I reckon the name should be something phoenetically memorable.

Here's a some I came up with.

Alaha'i: Lead, conduct, direct, guide.

Kuhikuhi: Lead, direct

Lama Kuhikuhi: beacon

Papa Kuhikuhi: index, directory

Ho'ike: Announce, notice, notify, witness, report.

I don't feel so much as a leader than as an advisor, and although I studied Sufism the name "Alaha'i" is a little to close to "Allah" for my taste. I'd rather be Tibetan:
Lama Kuhikuhi!...and the beacon is a good metaphor...let me light the way for the world out of the darkness of Tiki ignorance.
Now I just have to find the "Mama Lama" bar from Witco!

Judge, eh? How in the hell do you pronounce that. Im gonna change mine to that...
