    Kaspersky is a family name in eastern Europe, the founder of Kaspersky labs is Eugene Kaspersky.
    As to Google, I'm not sure, it could be another spelling for googol which is ***the number that is written as the number 1 followed by 100 zeros, or 10 to the power 100***

    None of the name does not mean nothing in another language environment. Meaning is only for a specific language users.
    For example in my country is very popular name (family name) Tamm, which doesn't mean for others nothing, but if to translate, for example to english, it will get its meaning. Then it is oak tree. But for in spanish it is presa, but for romenians it means (now in english) - press, journalism, printing press etc.
    So here it is very important to know which country they are called.
    But sometimes it does not even get the names directly translate, but it is necessary to know what is the name of history.
    For example my real name in my country is Kalju, if translate into english, it will be Rock or Rocky, but it was Pedro initially, for example in some countries it is Peter, in Russia it is Pjotr, etc.

    Wow! Unbelievable useless threads and posts you are doing o_O

    What is this? What do you pretend?
    For starters you asked for answers in depth, I quoted you above. Then you say "Please post simpler sentences".

    What do you pretend? (I almost rhetorically made this question).

    I have the feeling he is using a translation service - long sentences are hard to translate by machine. I try to keep it simple. Most names have no official meaning. They were picked by our members because they liked these names. Sometimes software names, sometimes persons. Whatever you can relate to. For my name, there is no special reason. I read an article in a magazine and the word ancestor was new to me back then. English is not my native language. I liked the word and used it as a nick name.

    Some considered 'Nakamoto' might be a team of people, some considered the code was too well designed for one person. Many articles have been written about the possible identity or identities of "Nakamoto". All theories and speculations about 'Nakamoto' are wrong. 'Nakamoto' is a single individual 40+, Male Japan. 'Nakamoto' speaks Japanese, English, +++ and he has Intercultural Competence. Human don't wait for the perfect moment - take this moment and make it perfect. – 'Satoshi Nakamoto' There comes a point in your life when you realize who matters, who never did, who won’t anymore, and who always will. So don’t worry about people from your past, there’s a reason why they didn’t make it to your future.

    Do you know the meaning of the names? Heldigard and CODYQX4.
    Heldigard makes kmspico,CODYQX4 makes Microsoft toolkit.
    I send some private messages to them. They didn't reply, so I don't know the meaning of their names.

    I believe Cody's is just his name and some random stuff to fluff it ---ed--- Cody's response http://forums.mydigitallife.net/thr...-avatars/page7?p=418682&highlight=#post418682 ---- No real meaning. Heldi, not certain. lol

    EFA11 = Everything is Free after 11(pm).. before Al Gore invented the internet and before Nubville city limits became popular. Any time after 11pm we could dial into the majority of systems unseen. Most SOPs where home or sleeping at their terminals by then :hangloose:

    Funny, not much has changed since then. Automation is better but easy to finger around most systems today lol

    Turns out that Google is a misspelling of a real-life mathematical term, googol.
