Lore for the new data person, pretty please!

Well done!

Sorry, but I don't get it. Who or what is "Lore"?

Lore is Data's brother from Star Trek: The Next Generation.

When I saw your suggestion, I had an almighty clunk: I haven't watched Next Generation since I got rid of cable 18 years ago, so haven't really thought about it too much [apart from explaining who guests are on The Big Bang Theory to my husband]...  I thought his name was Law.  ::)  Now I feel particularly stupid.  :-[  It made sense to me at the time because I thought his name was ironic [anyone less likely to follow the law...], and I could see one being called "information" and the other "rules".  Kind-of.

Ya learn something new every day!  Thanks eHell for widening my *ahem* Data-base! ;) <snerk>

Thank you. I'm only familiar with the original, so had never heard of Lore--or Data for that matter.

Here is Boston, it would sound  the same.   :)

Glad that's settled. Move on please.
