View Full Version : Question about the 'Eleven2' name...
12-20-2005, 04:43 PM
Maybe I'm just reaching here... and maybe it's because I'm creepy like this... But... Did 'Eleven2' get their name from the Dr. Seuss book: 'One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish'?

it makes me think of a certain tolkien quote.
care to elaborate on the dr seuss connection for those of us who aren't american? :)

Ahh... my bad...
There's a part in the book where this guy has 'eleven fingers'. And the last line on that page is: "I wish I had eleven too."

its the distance in paces to the power plug to the server room
11 paces straight, 2 paces right, pull, and we all die...

haha the dr. suess reference is awesome. i never would have thought of that.
there's another host called www.the112.com and it's because they have 112 mb of space.. i don't know if thats e2's reason but it's a lot less original than dr. suess. heh.

Well... I think it would be cool to run with the whole Dr. Seuss thing... You can take that character (with 11-fingers) and make him your mascot... heh
