Thank you Arnaud!  I didn't think to ask about getting a link up there on
those pages. I appreciate it.

About a year ago the JRR Tolkein people contacted the author of Hobbit
claiming copyright violation etc and politely asking that the name be changed.

The name "Hobbit" (Hobbitmon) was  recently officially changed to "Xymon"
(pronounced like "Simon"). The Sourceforge page and mailing list was changed
as recently as two weeks ago, and there is a lot of new development going on
now - including the changing of "hobbit" to "xymon" everywhere in the
documentation, source code, etc. So, soon the name "Hobbit" will be just a
footnote in software history. :)

Having both together like you did will help people looking for either, so that
is fine, although since Xymon is now the official name, I might change that to
Xymon (Hobbit) Monitor but either will be found by search engines. :)
