Henrietta Hippo is probably already taken. (Bonus points to those who
recall that reference). I was opting for Blessed Bovine, but I guess
they missed that opportunity.

Speaking of slow downloading, I went ahead and downloaded another copy
of Knoppix 5.1.0 because I too couldn't find my dvd of it either. This
is the second time I've done a bittorrent of it only to find out that
the torrent is requesting the same six blocks over and over again - so
I killed it and went to get it via ftp. They say bittorrent is better,
and I agree for some things it is. But there are problems, and one
hates to have to just stop a download when you are so close to getting
it all. But close is not good enough, obviously.

Cool. Extra zero sent to /dev/zero, it needs some of those.
