Update delayed a bit

Saturday, April 18th, 2009

The promised update to  GoBetwino version 0.6 is going to be a little delayed. I have been sick, and also had an unfortunate accident with a corrupted Visual Studio solution file. But everything is on the move again now

Saliva and drunks …..

A kind Arduino forum member has turned my attention to the fact that the name Gobetwino is not the most well chosen of names.

Apperantly Gob is slang for spit or mouth and wino slang for a drunk or alcoholic.  My native tongue is of course not english, so i have not been aware of this.

Gobetwino was constructed simply by pulling the words gobetween and Arduino together, and i really hope that no one is offended by the name.

Changing the name would be somewhat difficult, since i have created a web site for the program, a blog that’s mainly about it, and i has been downloaded close to 600 times from my web site by now. On top of that there is more than 2000 lines of source code and 45 pages of documentation.

So to makes things a little better i will from now on write the name as GoBetwino.
