Words with "oo" in it

Post by Tyndal » Fri Sep 02, 2005 10:09 am

Hi,

yesterday - before knewing the meaning of the word - i wasn't "glad" to hear about "joomla!" - today i feel better - the more i think about it the more i like it.

Those "OO"'s seem to be well thought - i recognize more "frequently used words" with OO in it every time i think about it...

Let's see:

Internet / computer:
jOOmla!
gOOgle
yahOO
dOOm (the game)
rOOt
gentOO
OO (Open Office)
nOOb (i don't like that word but it is everywhere in the www)
legend of lOOm (wasn't there a game? don't know for sure)

others:
fruit of the lOOm (clothes)
.OObies (just replace "." by "b" - guess an often used word in gOOgle  ;D )
blOOd
tatOO

I think those internet/computer-oo's can be interesting/usefull for branding jOOmla!
"The brotherhood of the oo's"
(Hey, brotherhOOd, found another one!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

What other words do you know? I'm especially interestet in those inet/comp-related words!

And of course for all the coders out there OO stands for Object Oriented  ;)

Your are right that the name Joomla was not chosen by the community. And you can see in many posts that not every member (including myself) likes the new name. But there are people who do like it. You cannot satisfy everyone. And any proposal you find in this forum would have received negative feedback. I think it's simply a matter of getting used to it and it's way more important that the community plays a vital role in the further development.

Yes, this was the first thing I liked in jOOmla :) Name is somewhat strange, but in some strange way I like it. It's the name of new CMS which is based on solid foundations, has OO in it, great community and developers, it's simple and powrfull, enugh for me :)

I constantly use oo la la in my copy..

When I'm really excited I say "oo frickin' la la..."

As in "oo frickin' la la..check this out good party people"  ;D

I like double o's (a bit cheeky I think)..

Think Rodger Moore as Double O 7.............

And then, of course, in that OO there's pooh.

I just hope there isn't any pOOh in the pOOl, as that wouldn't be gOOd. Someone would have stOOd on the side to scOOp it out. You'd have to pay me some decent mOOlah to do that job - even then I'd probably be rather mOOdy.

Here's the address for a Google results page for *oo* in the English language:

http://www.google.com/search?as_q=%2Aoo ... afe=images

That's just treating "OO" as a word by itself!  :)
