Hi Ed. There are a couple problems here. First, Appletalk is a network
protocol already. Those names might be available but I don't recommend
them since it would cause confusion. Second, I am opposed to the guide dog
comparisons because I personally don't use one and I don't want people to
think that one is required to enjoy the site. This is about a computer,
not an animal. It isn't necessarily a tool since much discussion here has
been about games. Finally, remember there might be deaf-blind users. For
them, a talking computer does no good. I know that the VersaBraille could
hook up to the Apple and provide at least a minimal Braille
display. Therefore I think something that says both blind and Apple is
best. I think maybe blind-apple.org, blindapple2.org, or similar might be
best, but something along that line is what I had in mind. Finally, I
agree with you on search engines. It would be a good idea to include meta
information on each page. Google will pick up the new domain on its own
though so that isn't critical. It already indexes jaybird.no-ip.info.
