Naming Tasky



Boyd and I created Tasky for Novell's Hackweek v2 and hacked as fast and furious as we could to get it running during the week. We didn't think much about the name and as it turns out, there are already a couple of projects named Tasky out there.

We're looking for a new name and hope you can help. Feel free to contact either of us directly or post your suggestions to the Tasky google group. There is a $100 reward for the winning name (compliments of Novell).

Did you finally select a name?

Wake Up Alarms (part 2)
