Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

As I finish up the new samples which should go out with our Midas Rich Text LSX Version 3.40 today (available soon from Midas LSX samples page), I am caught in the dilemma I usually face.  My tendency is to give the names of the samples a fun little twist, but I am never sure whether that makes them less obvious sources of information to others.  @Midas A La Carte is fun, but do people know it is a sample showing a shopping cart like interface?  Resourceful Images is the intended name for our new sample about Image Resources, but maybe I should just call it Image Resources.  Similarly, our new sample showing creation, clearing and manipulation of Hide When formulas and flags could be Hide-Whens or Hide It! or Hide in Plain Sight, but while the latter two sound more interesting, they may confuse people, especially if English is not their primary language.

So, interesting or informational, clever or clear, fun or functional?  What should it be?
