Scared of the Peacock Revolution since 2006
Blog » Day 2 - The meaning behind your Blog name
This should be rather easy. The name of this blog used to be "Simon's blag", which was a xkcd reference and a rather self-descriptive (though mundane) blog name. Sometime last year, I rebranded to the current ElePHPant Haven.
For those that don't know, I have two elephants. They're small and blue and cuddly and currently complaining that I left the covers of the bed. They also have PHP on the side and are imitation PHP mascots. The person that made the suggestions for the redesign was helping me pick, and came up with relating it to my elephants. The Haven is because it's supposed to be a safe-ish place for them to frolic. Or whatever it is that they do.
The subtitle on my blog also kinda relates. For those that don't know, O'Reilly make technology-based books with animals on the front. Either the ASP or .Net one has a peacock on the front. 2006 is just the year I registered simon.geek.nz, so picked that as the start year of the blog. Though it may not have been, since I was just a domain of nzmac.org before then.
