Working on

Currently there is a GTK GUI in the CVS I am working on. It is not perfect yet, it also does not run under windows. But as soon as this is accomplished, I will try to release an alpha version.
Names are added on a weekly basis, the example page is also new.

In the Pipe

2 weeks of holidays, 1 week of trouble. And lots of plans.
I) Midgard will get a Online RPG ... and I got into contact with the developers. I will add and finish midgard names ASAP
II) I started to write my own GUI. Before I am forced to do it (like Siegfried forced me to make a new homepage). Some things already work, some behave strange. Look into CVS for the GUI.
III) The first names got Unicoded. See midgard/rawindra midgard/waeland and midgard/chryseia.

At last: unicode and DB quality as TGZ

Download it, while it is still hot.

DB Quality calculated

A Patch I wrote calculates the quality of each DataBase.
The total amount of possible male/female names is calulated and the result is put into a category.

And the winner is:

midgard/eschar (it has a rule file with a lot of options, that improves it a lot).

I will add a db-quality-page soon.

This version is in cvs now. Please test it, I will make a Tar version as soon as it is tested.

Indian names by Sharath Kumar

I used the data sent by Sharath Kumar to create indian names. They can be viewed in the example section of the homepage.
They are not checked by Sharath yet, so don't rely on them. But they already sound the ears of a german :-)
