Not so embarrassing, but somewhat similar, is the fact that I named my
computer program DYNAFIT (Anal. Biochem. vol. 273, pp. 260-273) after a
brand of... ski-boots. ;-) I am getting email from people seeking
the thrill of having their bones broken on a black-diamond slope, not
necessarily the more sedate thrill of eyballing a perfect match between
kinetic data and the underlying system of differential equations.

Tells me to name my next piece of software something not composed of
plain English root words... By the way, DYNAFIT is a program for
regression analysis of (bio)chemical kinetic and equilibrium binding
data. Download from http://www.biokin.com -> software.
