FairyCAKE? CheeseCAKE? - Journal of Omnifarious

10:17 pm - FairyCAKE? CheeseCAKE?

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

kwoo has started a port of CAKE to Smalltalk. In particular, a dialect of Smalltalk called Squeak.

We've been trying to decide on a good name for this implementation. I'm calling my implementation BirthdayCAKE because, of course, it's the first. I was thinking of calling the Smalltalk implementation FairyCAKE because the little people (fairies) are small and they talk. And it would be an amusing reference to Douglas Adams as well. And, since the particular Smalltalk implementation targeted is called Squeak, CheeseCAKE is also a natural. I was also thinking of CoffeeCAKE, because people make small-talk over coffee cake, but that's too perfect a name for the Java implementation.

So, does anybody out there have any good ideas? :-)

CoffeeCake is a must for Java....
PoundCake -- C# version (compliments of Vivien)
Beefcake -- K&R C
Shortcake -- APL Version
CarrotCake -- Hmmmm, something with lots of ^, Perl?
LetThemEatCake - ADA
PanCake -- Assembler
UpsideDownCake -- Pascal (bottom up programming)
BundtCake - Per faeryraindancer, it's got to be something from Microsoft 'cause it's got a hole big enough to drive a truck through.
SpongeCake -- VB
YellowCake -- BASIC

*chuckle* Those are good. I like YellowCAKE, but BASIC just seems horribly inappropriate, not radioactive or explosive. Hmmm... :-)

Riffing off of "small"talk… ShortCAKE? But the "short" in shortcake doesn't actually refer to size … CupCAKE? CAKEAreSquare(Brackets)?

CupCAKE would be better for Scheme - they're both tiny (and un-filling pathetic snackfood ;-))

*chuckle* Thanks for the suggestions. One reason I ask these questions in LJ entries is that everybody is qualified really. The more clever and interest catching the name is, the better. :-)

CheeseCAKE is a perfect name, since Squeak's logo is a mouse...

I found it via the BirthdayCAKE wiki page. I found CAKE via a link on a OneBigSoup wiki page; I do some work on OneBigSoup projects.
