    Just curious but why would you name a hosting company after a dangerous natural gas? Would seem like an odd choice of names.

    I actually don't know why I called it that. I suppose, after a discussion with an enterprising chemistry teacher, Radon just came out, if you know what I mean. Although it's radioactive, it's chemically unreactive, so I suppose that's a good thing. It has a few health and scientific benefits, discarding Rn-222.

    Why would you name a chain of hotels after a dangerous metal ? [​IMG]

    Hilton? Hard Rock?

    (I joke because I can't think of a hotel chain named after a metal...)

    Have no idea what chain of hotels you're referring to but at least here in the States there is an entire industry built up around radon detection & prevention. In some locales radon testing is even required as part of the process of buying/selling a house. Calling a company "Radon Systems" that has nothing to do with radon testing around here would be like calling a company "Cyanide Systems" and having nothing to do with poison.
    Makes two of us.

    Not obvious at all. First, I've never heard of them. But that's not surprising considering there are none in the US at all. Second, even if they ARE named "Mercury" it's probably named so after the Roman God of the same name.

    "Mercure" is not "Mercury" which can be the Roman god or the closest planet to the sun.

    Language barrier here, I think. I thought the same thing, but it seems that it may be the same thing in the French culture. There was also a paper called "Mercure" and that was named after the Roman God as well.
