A bit of fring development trivia

So, if you are a developer of things webbish or things mobile phone-ish, you may already know that the company I work for, fring released an API for creating various applications and mashups inside our software platform. The name of our special XML-based language is FAXL, pronounced "Fah-zel". The server that runs the fring applications is called the FIS. One of the FIS servers we used for development was named "inigomontoya".

In the last few days leading up to launch, there was a bastardized quote that rang through the air at seemingly random times, "My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my FAXL. Prepare to die!"

Yeah, software development deadlines are not conducive to mental stability. Need I say more?
