  2. Try "Japanese." At least, that is what I see at that site, but when I
    click on the text in the middle of the screen, I get taken to the ISP's
    Web site (Netgroove). I think that the text on which I clicked might be
    saying that the site is undergoing maintenance -- if I am interpreting
    correctly the Kanji on the second line (I've studied Chinese, not Japanese).

    BTW, "yama" is Japanese for "mountain"; I don't know about the "mi" bit.

    Sorry, I didn't investigate whether or not the referring website that I
    found had it claimed they were Taiwanese. I didn't give it a second thought.
  4. Just to complete the above sample from my mine of useless trivia, I have
    now learned that the "mi" part means "three." So the name "Miyama" means
    "Three Mountains," which happens to be the name of a place in Japan,
    perhaps the home town of the Miyama company.

    Similarly (and I know that you were all dying to know this) the name
    "Mitsubishi" means "Three Diamonds," as in the company's familiar logo.

    I'll shut up now.

    So, they misnamed themselves? Any company with a 500 year business plan
    should have used the Japanese word for "insanity"...any help on what that

    (wondering how they planned to be in automotive and semi-conductors back in
    the Middle Ages)
