    In seriousness though how about 127 Software or 127 Solutions, 127 is ofcourse shorthand for local but should still work from a branding point of view.

    Only problem is that it should be spelled "Ayers Rock" - not sure how well the mis-spelling works (and shouldn't it be known as Uluru??)

    Having said that, going with your own name may be no bad thing - it's done no harm for Dell or Hewlett Packard (although whether a Wozniak Macintosh would have been a success we shall never know :-))

    Well spotted. I was looking at the Wikipedia page for Ayers Rock just before I posted that, but I still mis-spelt it.
