    Oooo, sounds like a challenge! What's a feasible name that is even more pedestrian than gateway? Node? Process? Program? How about a new interpretation of an old, obsolete, but well-known acronym, like VHS (Virtual Highway Supervisor) or FDD (Fast Dedicated Daemon)?
    Don't send me private messages (PMs) unless you really need privacy, like your game server password. If you just have a question or need help, post in one of the threads. It's extra work for me to answer questions and give help in private messages and no one else gets the benefit of the answer.

    A few weeks back, we had a fancy name, something along the lines of "Procon Extensible Networked Interactive Server" (it was a bit better, but I can't remember the exact one), but sadly, it wasn't accepted

    Looking back on the question from users - you all are really aiming too high

    I would go really simple

    control panel or controller - for UI
    brain or program - for instance.

    Remembering that these admins are not computer expert guys and girls and most don't think like that.

    You say

    GUI and they go "what???"
    layer - they don't say anything - just go kinda glazed eyes
    address - they think of where they get the pizza delivered.
    instance - wtf?

    but.. can't we have a cool name? Everyone else gets cool names..

    The name does not need to actually say what it does. Just pick a name and people will call it that. We could name it "Henry", "Ploho" or "Potato"..

    We're naming it Potato just so hosts say "Get your Procon Potato" hosted here.

    This is happening.

    Phogue: We can call the UI a peeler.
    Phogue: Your peeler is unable to connect to your potato.
    MorpheusX(AUT): do it

    Not that the idea isn't a peeling... but potatoes ?

    Blackberry - cause it looks cute - raspberry - again cute - Apple - eh.

    Potato in a logo ? Going to look a bit like a turd

    I was stewing on that, and figured any logo would be done in stencil(?) format. Like how Borderlands looks. I can't think of the correct name. I don't think I ever knew the art name.

    "Procon" is the entire system, Potato is the core, Peeler is the UI. Just so we can break these things down for serious discussion.

    "How do I send a command to my potato?"
    "My potato isn't responding!"

    Potato is awesome, but peeler not so much. I would have preferred masher. There's even some logic to it, since the UI is a mash-up of pods and such.
