    /usr/bin/EvilPlan (Planet Buster building base)
    Silicon Valley

    A few more ideas:

    Apolyton Prime (for capital)
    Akiria/Akiris (it was actually named after Akizeta in the first place)
    Aurora
    Zetaris/Zetaria (again named after Akizeta)
    Pride in Numbers (after all our names)
    Underwater Collective (for sea base)

            yes, you see, in the DBTSverse, the laws of everything don't apply, and rabid bunnies hop about to ward off intruders. have you ever heard the term DBTS logic? well, that's the only kind that applies in the DBTSverse

              Are you sure DBTS is male? That sounds suspiciouslylike female logic

              EDIT (using evil bug ): yes, DBTS posted a picture of him with his gf in CGN's IRC.

                I think we need a poll tomorrow for the name of the capital, and one other base. I'll post it, or Maniac can, but wait to get some more options from the others first.

                  One I always liked (from my Cyborg aquatic clone faction) is

                  Omega Watch

                  Others?:

                  Temple of Tron
                  Mythical Matrix
                  NodeRunner

                      For a few of the landmarks around your bases why not:

                      Dell River
                      Microsoft Peak
                      Gateway Bay
                      Sony Plateau
                      etc

                      (Sorry they are all American - I can't think offhand of any European equivalents right now)

                          Let's have a look what landmarks we have around us before we name them I think. Nice ideas though.

                            Bah. As you might guess, I don't really like having names of American corporations as landmarks.
                            What about:
                            Philips Forest
                            Linux Lawn? (or something else beginning with "L")

                              Well, would cyborgs need OSs in the same way. I would have things like:
                              Digital Desert
                              Forest of Logic

                              However, it would only be logical to name landmarks so that they are easily remembered, rather than on pure whim or fancy. If it does not serve a purpose, it is illogical
                              But since it does, carry on
