Name that search engine!

Dear HiveMind, please help me think of a name for a new web project I'm building. It's essentially a "genealogy search engine in a box", based on a customized build of Apache Solr. It will allow moderately tech savvy genealogy geeks, whether individual genealogists or small genealogy organizations, an easy way to index and search datasets of names and any related data, with a nice front end UI for doing searches. Notable features include faceted search (by record year, record town(s), record source, etc.), soundalike surname searching, customizable given name synonyms (i.e. searching for "Becky" also finds Rebecca), and pop-up Google Maps linked to record locations. And the entire project will be open source. The project is already about 90% completed, but I need something snappy to call it before I can release it. Ideas welcome!

Costume Ideas for Emma Peel from The Avengers?

I'm helping a friend with an undergraduate film school remake of The Avengers. I've been cast as Miss Peel, and I'm searching for the perfect costume to fit the character. Unfortunately, my school is in the middle of nowhere - shopping in person isn't really an option. Any thoughts for how I can assemble or where I might find a hip 1960s-looking catsuit on the internet? Thanks!

The word "project" is really starting to piss me off

Business etymology: When and how did the word "project" get turned into an all-purpose business word? Why does it seem that "work" is now just a series of "projects." Is this word choice shifting the way business is done, or is it the other way 'round?
