Cogito Ergo Gone | House of Horne

Cogito Ergo Gone

For those who care, Cogito Ergo Blog is no more. Tricia and I are consolidating our collective efforts into a family website. There is still a good bit of work to do (for instance, the archive by author doesn’t work yet), but I wanted to go ahead and publish the new site so I would be motivated to finish it.

The color scheme and formatting will probably change several times in the coming weeks… and we need a name! Any ideas? We’ve been over a bunch of clever plays on the word “Horne”, but to be honest, they aren’t very clever.

    No creative ideas at this hour of the morning, but thumbs-up to the new layout!

    FogHorne LegHorne?
    Cape Horne?
    Horne of Gondor?
    Little Big Horne?
    Horne Ensemble?
    I would suggest French Hornes, but I don’t know your geneology…

    Ok, ok, I’ll stop now.

    Wow! That is incredible, Paul. My wife and I actually watched those Hornblower videos (A&E? PBS?) a year or two ago… I had read most of the books in my youth.

    Horatio Horneblogger is hilarious!

    Another idea is Cornucopia–Horne of Plenty, though that might fit Mark better. ;)

    The page is looking good!
    But I am actually writing to ask if you have done something to disable greymatter that I was using on Jenn’s Blog. I know you and Mark use Movable Type, but I didn’t want to have to learn something new. Let me know. Thanks.

    It’s still there… but I may have deleted the web page that linked it for you when I was doing a bit of cleanup. Try:

    Could you base it on:

    1 Samuel 2:1
    Then Hannah prayed and said: “My heart rejoices in the LORD ; in the LORD my horn [ 2:1 [ Horn ] here symbolizes strength; also in verse 10. ] is lifted high. My mouth boasts over my enemies, for I delight in your deliverance.

    2 Samuel 22:3
    my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn [ 22:3 [ Horn ] here symbolizes strength. ] of my salvation. He is my stronghold, my refuge and my savior- from violent men you save me.

    Psalm 75:10
    I will cut off the horns of all the wicked, but the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.

    Psalm 89:24
    My faithful love will be with him, and through my name his horn [ 89:24 [ Horn ] here symbolizes strength. ] will be exalted.

    Ezekiel 29:21
    “On that day I will make a horn [ 29:21 [ Horn ] here symbolizes strength. ] grow for the house of Israel, and I will open your mouth among them. Then they will know that I am the LORD .”

    A few more ideas:

    “Tooting Our Own Hornes”
    “The Hornes Section”
    “Unique Hornes” (say it fast)
    “Horne Net: What’s The Buzz”
    “Horne Net’s Nest”
    “Hornesbloggled” (as opposed to hornswoggled)

    Thanks for all the great ideas, everyone. Nothing like the combination of creativity and cheese…

    Tricia and I will hopefully be moving on a name change shortly.
