bq. Sorry, I wasn’t aware of the pattern here (which is Tides and Bees-in-Trees, right?)… There is definitely deference in my naming, and deserved one, but I intended more a reference to the “biological” nature of open source, each project occupying its own ecological niche. I have to say I have a conflicted relationship with Greenaway… I haven’t seen Drowning in Numbers in ten years, and remember feeling pretty strongly against it, so I’d feel a bit uneasy to name this work after his… Can’t we have our own pun? Plus, seen your job, I thought you would appreciate smile Ok ok, you won, I’ll give Greenaway another shot soon smile
Greenaway is not to everyone’s taste. Anyway, if you want to adhere strictly to the naming convention, the games listed in the film are:
- Bees in the Trees
- Dawn Card Castles
- Deadman’s Catch
- Flights of Fancy (or Reverse Strip Jump)
- The Great Death Game
- Hangman’s Cricket
- The Hare and Hounds
- Sheep and Tides
However, I think other references to the film are also fine, such as to the soundtrack, which adds:
- Trysting Fields
- Wheelbarrow Walk
- Fish Beach
- Wedding Tango
- Crematorium Conspiracy
- Knowing the Ropes
And then there are the 100 greatest magnitude stars named by Skipping Girl in the film (she only gets up to 58, however).
The problem with “parasite” is that it has negative connotations for most people (possible but as yet unproven therapeutic uses notwithstanding). It makes me want to recommend an antihelminthic to treat your firmware. The biological analogy isn’t really correct, either. I was going to suggest epiphyte, or even epibiont. Phages springs to mind, or plasmids. Or something from genomics Alleles (not quite right)? Polymorphisms (but not really single nucleotide) is probably closest, and is a term used in object-oriented programming, of course.
Then for Clouds, you have a rich meteorological taxonomy to chose from.
But a game from Drowning by Numbers would be best.
