for everyone...

I've written my own zip program (freeware) and I need a good name for it...

Leave the names as comments and then I'll ask the person with the best name to leave it as an answer...

Thanx for the help

Cool question Boris,

We begin with a horror tune tadatadatadatada and then ...

Help, Honey, I shrunk the files! ;-)

(sorry, couldn't resist writing it down)

Zip-IT?

Sorry, am not that good in finding names.

Offcourse, I assumed that your zip-program is REALLY good. Actually, it can't be bad. But incase ... we can also name it BitRecycler. ;-) No offence BoRiS, hope you don't mind.

ZifNabCommented:
Mmm, why has it always and with Zip?
If you add the functionality of arj files, .... then the zip isn't the right word... only my opinion offcourse. And we've to think into the future (right BORIS?). So let's add other archives in it too!

why not using words like
Shrink, Reduce, Woosh... my english is not so good for finding the crazy words...

Well, woosh comes from the idea of flushing, don't know if the word even exist! Sounds great. And maybe if your program becomes famous... this will become a new word!

Shrink-It, Reduce-It, Woosh-It

FileShrinker, FileReducer, FileWoosher

MegaShrinker, MegaReducer, MegaWoosher

ByteShrinker, ByteReducer, ByteWoosher

tadatadatadatadatadatada ...

The BLACK-HOLE (famous movie!!!) that's it! nice icon too...

It's a black-hole itself... reduces everything even light... ;-)

These names are all copyrighted... ;-) (pff what a silly remark)

BoRiS Compressor, BoRiS Archivator and BZIP is what I had in mind in the beginning too - might sound comercial too, like "Norton Commander"... :)

ZifNabCommented:
BoRiS Compressor, yes it's possible, but I personally don't find them very commercial. Usually they put there picture on the box too, bweegh. But ofcourse if you're a sort of ADONIS, you'll get a lot of fanmail (female and male)

Everyone...

The first person to leave a answer will get the points, as all the names are good and cannot think you should get 'em (the points)...

The program has been called BoRiS compressor Lite (for just the zip and unzip test and fix)

and then there will be a BoRiS Compressor Pro (for zip, arj, lhz, rar, gzip etc...)all still freeware...

Last chance to be added to the contact list for the lite version (for now)
Mail me at : phillip@vwv.com
