Jim, by the way, what exactly does “C.” mean in your name? I mean, it’s so ambiguous
that it could mean anything!

Or is this an example of using a regular expression (you have a two-letter last name?) as
opposed to C* using a traditional wildcard “glob”?!

Maybe “C*” should be “C.*”.

Or maybe some people would prefer C8  or C7a– at least that would have a chance of returning
narrower Google search results than searching for “C*”.

Yes you are correct, Cassandra is often abbreviated as C*. With most languages and applications
being referenced by their acronym / abbreviation, I guess you just have to pick one that is
available. I assume if someone creates a new language and wants to name it C*, they will see
that it is taken and avoid the conflict.

  I assume that C* == Cassandra?  IMHO not a good ref to use what with C,
  C++, C#.  A language called C* can't be far behind assuming it doesn't
  already exist.
