Indeed. :) I know about the sex change and the fact that it was Norman Lovett got too stroppy so when he threatened to leave, they let him. :lol:

No, I was just wondering why Holly, which is usually a girl's name was used.

I don't think it's short for hologram, as he isn't a hologram. Rimmer is a hologram, so we know what they look like in the Red Dwarf universe. :mrgreen:

I always thought Holly because he's a hologrammatic computer. Can't a hologram be flat screen as as well as an object? Maybe I don't ask enough questions but I've always just gone with it. I think Holly's a great name for, well, Holly.

There's quite a few feminine unisex names though.

Oh, Holly is the sweetest little kitten. He sleeps 25 hours a day(!) and when he does wake up, he washes his paws, then sticks and entire one in his mouth, quick suck, then back to snoozing.

I know. Can't wait to get to work tomorrow, and jump feet first into YouTube (especially since bossman doesn't appear to be in Tues/Weds!)

Some exciting stuff happened, especially on the Firefly litter. But I'll post about that on the Cat Thread. ;)
