Pele Rising: The cover art depicts a digital incarnation of the Hawaiian goddess of fire, lightening and volcanoes. The Hawaiian word for computer is lolo uila, which literally means "brain lightning".
Lolo means brain. Lōlō means crazy. That is why its important to dot your ʻokinas and cross your kahakōs :-) If we miss one our friends at UH are quick to correct us. English speakers aren't used to worrying about how long a vowel is held. I screw this up in Japanese all the time. For example, oji is uncle but ojī (ojii) is grandfather.
