Elssbett Mossadim showed up in two episodes of Andromeda (first and second seasons, while the show was still good). Kiesa thought Elssbett was a suitable strong female charcter, so she picked that name for her computer. Elssbett's husband Charlemagne Bolivar (who shows up in one episode played by James Marsters; when I discovered this last week I had no choice but to consult my old Andromeda archive to see this for myself. (Kiesa and I dubbed a temporary Windows experiment "Charlemagne" long ago.)

Elssbett (the notebook) has had several years to be distressed about her name; so far, she seemed reasonabally happy.

like a lot of geeks, I can run risky meatspace things
through my head until a faulty value comes out that
suggests there's no need to actually do them.
