Re: [hobbit] Goodbye "Hobbit", hello "Xymon"

"Mozilla" was the original project code name for NetscapeNavigator and, according to some of the documentation, the
correct pronunciation of "Netscape".
See http://vdict.com/Mozilla,6,0,0.html

So I guess we can label is Xymon and pronounce it "hobbit" !! :-)

BTW I actually remember seeing this ! Believe it was on the intro page or download page

  address - www.hobbitmon.com - will remain in place for
  some time, but no longer than August 2009.

* Changes to documentation, code, webpages inside the
  Hobbit monitor etc. will be happening over the next couple
  of weeks, and will be fully implemented in the upcoming
