I just can't imagine how that got approved in the first place! Analytech (like "analytic") would have made so much more sense and avoided that unfortunate association.

BTW, the survey link is not working for me, saying I already voted (I'm sure I would have remembered voting on something like that!).

@Nedra: I should have embedded the link before I took the survey! I've changed it; it should work now, although you'll have to scroll to the bottom of the page and click through.

OMG, this is wonderful!

Yep, they're all talking about Funke around the water cooler. Totally my first thought!
