Astronomers Invent "Galaxy Game"

HitherYon Re:Boring (55 comments)

I thought games were supposed to be fun. This just sounds like grunt work. Don't these researchers have grad students to do this kind of thing?

Where's Your Coding Happy Place?

HitherYon Re:For me, it's music, not place. (508 comments)

Ask CCP About EVE Online

HitherYon Naming Requirements? (306 comments)

We'll be talking with one of the following: Hilmar Veigar Petursson, Chief Executive Officer, Magnus Bergsson, Chief Marketing Officer, Nathan Richardsson, Senior Producer, Halldór Fannar Guðjónsson, Chief Technology Officer. One of these members of the top brass will be available to answer your questions.

So... is the "-sson" an official requirement for an executive level position at CCP? Or were the "-dóttir"s just in short supply?
