Re: Not so silly question about the name of the Hurd

Um... it's "die Herde" and therefore by your reasoning "die Hurd". I
defended this designation here a few months ago, but most of the
others didn't find it as cool as I did.

Anyway, the alternative "der Hurd" is not better, and "das Hurd"
sounds really bad -- all IMHO of course, YMMV.
