To MacDoc Pro.

Discuss.

Interesting concept. . . I think we can enforce a grace period coinciding with his own, personal adoption of an Intel Mac.

Maybe he should change his name to Intel Doc. It would be more... anatomically correct.

This thread could go on for weeks....

Maybe we could install Rosetta on him, then we might get some decent English for a change

Who asked you?

Your plans, desires, dreams, and inner secrets are as nothing to us.... IntelDoc.

Weeks! This thread could go on for weeks!

Sabbah conjecture:

PowerDoc should changes his name to MacDoc Pro.

Discussion:

Hassan i Sabbah, a glancing resident at this fine establishment, proposed in early 2006 a name change for one of the more permanent resident-moderators from PowerDoc to MacDoc Pro. He offered no reasoning behind this conjecture; however, over its lifetime, this conjecture has been the subject of a great deal of hemming and hawing especially in consideration of a need for a formal proof in the exact renaming scheme -- some have even argued that the conjecture stands on more firm ground by not calling for a change to MacDoc Pro but of a change from PowerDoc. However, in our recent ruminations over the Sabbah conjecture, we stumbled upon the basis for the suggested name change and, here, for the first time offer a simple proof of the renaming scheme of the sabbah conjecture:

Given: Apple has changed the name of its professional laptop computer line from PowerBook to MacBook Pro (and have given no guidance as to its pronunciation).

Proof: We first show how the transformation from PowerBook to MacBook Pro occured and then use that transform on PowerDoc's name:

PowerBook.

Power Book.

Mac Book Pro.

MacBook Pro.

PowerDoc.

Power Doc.

Mac Doc Pro.

MacDoc Pro.

QED

We can now take for granted the Sabbah Law.

You hear that, Powerd... MacDoc Pro?

It's not merely a suggestion, it's an immutable Law. Sabbah's First Law.

While the recent work of hardeeharhar ("Sabbah's Law, a Proof," Appleinsider 2006) does indeed raise many interesting question on the mutation of etymological phrase-particles we remain of the belief that H. i. Sabbah's initial conjecture remains just that: conjecture of the a priori belief that resident-moderator PowerDoc should change his name to MacDoc Pro.

While we intend to reveal more of the reasoning behind this in a forthcoming paper on the subject, ("iDoc Extreme: the Harald Postulation," Appleinsider, forthcoming) we precis here the underlying reasoning.

Firstly, hardeeharhar's mutations require the agency of an intelligent power. The anthropic principle is in action: one thing has changed (PowerBook -- MacBook Pro) yet hardeeharhar's 'proof' requires the intervention of hardeeharhar himself, or another intelligence, to create concomitant change in other names (in this case, PowerDoc). In other words, without hardeeharhar's very research he would not have discovered his 'causality.'

This, of course, leads us to the Harald Postulation. If it can be demonstrated that only intelligent agency could cause the transformation of the initital underlying naming schema, then it should be relatively easy to prove the hand of the Intelligent Designer is at work. We are designing an experiment to prove this at this time.

The practical short-term effect is that saying "PowerDoc should change his name" is akin to saying "Trumptman should put an 'e' between the 'p' and the 't'." Both are baseless opinion, conjecture and ... ewww ... "theory."

It's not that easy we have a tale in France speaking of a frog wanting to become as big as a (ros)beef. The morale ot this tale, is that it was impossible

Harold, in his famous conjecture, proposes the presence of an entity which upon application of the transform changes PowerDoc's name to MacDoc Pro. The extent of the hardeeharhar proof is only meant to obtain the true form of the Sabbah transform and prove that Sabbah's predicted result is the valid form. While on paper, I can tell you that Sabbah's transform is accurate, the choice of the name change is in one entity... PowerDoc. Just as apple committed the transform on its product line, PowerDoc must commit himself to this very same transform iff he wants...

Hey... if I ever manage to understand it, I might be enraged and want this conjecture thing gone too! Then again, it might turn out to be something I like so much I want tatooed on my right thigh.

I can't tell which way it'll go yet.

Out of interest, does anyone actually like the name Macbook Pro? I think it's the stupidest name Apple has come up with yet. ibook and powerbook were great names IMO and they matched with imac and powermac.

i = user class, power = pro class
book = laptop, mac = desktop

now it's
macbook = laptop, pro = pro class
i = user class, mac = desktop?

It's all confused.

Right! Everybody back off the Frenchman now or I'll set my new vicious canine companion "Killer Bob" onto you.



Don't let that cute cuddly pooch disguise fool you. Killer Bob is a man eater!

Get rid of this cute bichon, killer and man eater
