     Weird; we'll try to figure it out the next time we chat.

     I'm up for it. Let's hash out the details off-list.

     Oh, I wanted to avoid another spelling like "GemStone" which
contributes to people writing "SmallTalk" instead of "Smalltalk". I
think "snowglobe" is common enough variant of "snow globe" in normal
prose. If "Snowglobe" isn't good, I'd rather use a different word and
theme entirely, and free from the temptation to use an embedded capital.
So we can't call it eXistenZ. :)

     "Snowglobe" was in our communication about it for so long that I
thought you were okay with it.

     thanks again,
