Re: Pepsi and Coke

These were/are codenames associated with specific chips and the drivers they use.

Personally, i am waiting for someone to use the gin&tonic codename :-]

Re: Pepsi and Coke

Hi and Thanks Melvyn,

Does HP get a commission from Pepsi and Coke to leave these names in the system config?

Perhaps if I called my scripts names like FORD, VOLKSWAGON and NISSAN then I could apply for sponsorship!!!

If you just had asked this yesterday ....

I would have directed you to a note stating that HP was forced by a law suit to replace some servers by older models because they had broken some copyrights and trademarks.
