I have been using "Elektrovision" informally (not that I have actually
released anything under that name...) but I may need to change it... there
seams to be some company using that name now.  They apparantly do some
sort of internet live streaming thing, I don't know any details since
"internet live streaming" are just about the only english words on their
site.  Yes, I'm lame, I can only read english.

I was going for somthing classic video game sounding, you know, like
Colecovision, Microvision, Activision, etc.

Hmm...  brainstorm time...


Of course, it doesn't really have to have the form /something/vision...

familiar with obscure old fixed frequency Mac monitors will get the joke)
