Like in 'Numerical Algorithms Group' (http://www.nag.co.uk) ?  Talk about 
asking for a lawsuit :)

I actually like it, but in its more English 'naja' form 
(http://www.tiscali.co.uk/reference/encyclopaedia/hutchinson/m0007527.html). 
It's also an excellent ice axe, which has to count for something :)

The cobra certainly qualifies for a fast and mean snake, which rings nice to 
me with the python theme ("pythons are good, but slow killers: when you need 
the job done fast, get the naja out")

Man, we need to hire one of those name marketing companies... We suck at this.

Cheers,
