*cough* Actually, Martin you know damned good and well that "tempest" is 
not a Wiggledagger reference.

Everyone (by which I mean me) knows that tempest was envisioned to be the 
first in a large rack of computing machines named after classic video 
games.  IMO, as host naming schemes go, classic video games trumps classic 
literature every time.

So some other suggestions that come to mind (slanted heavily of course, by 
my North American 80's teendom) might be: galaga, tron, centipede, pong, 
joust, qbert, arkanoid, qix, defender, frogger, gyruss, and galaxian (in 
order of my high scores, iirc).  qix, tron and pong get the nod for 
shortest and easiest to type.

Needless to say, when I should have been reading schoolbooks, I was cutting 
school and feeding quarters into to the tempest machine in the local pizza 
joint.  Wait a minute though... I think "Buhler" does ring  bell.  What was 
he King of again?
