Mycroft Systems


The use of the name Mycroft comes from two sources of inspiration: first, the brother of fictional detective Sherlock Holmes (subject of MS' first BBS door game), and second, the nickname of the "HOLMES IV" supercomputer in Heinlein's novel The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress. The name Mycroft Systems was used both for the author's home BBS and the software that he wrote for it as well as for this more general use.
