Hello Flux and friends. Strangely enough I was reading a novel the other day called Cold Mountain and the word flux came up in a very interesting way. The quot goes like this, "About all he could remember of the trip was the heat and the odors of blood and of shit, for many of the wounded had the flux". So...are you named for a disease from long ago that caused people to have the runs?? If so, thats not too bad and I applaud your creativeity. It even implies that maybe you suffer too. A man who names himself after a shitting disease surely would. Comments A

A friend and I put together a desktop publishing firm (Flux Graphics) some years ago and we came up with the name because it meant "flow, change" and implied sense of vitality. I later adopted the name for my software company.
