I misspelled "Vyrso" in another post and someone directed me to the meaning of "Verso." Since I have not yet heard the meaning of "Vyrso," I thought I would pass this along. 

Webster's defines "verso" as "the side of a leaf (as of a manuscript) that is to be read second." I guess in Logos' mind Bible Study is "first" and trade books are "second." The variation of "verso" and "vyrso" must just be product differentiation.

Perhaps someone from Logos can chime in if I am on the right track Smile

I always thought it was simply an issue of 'what .com addresses are still left unregistered?'  Wink

I think it's a multiple play on words. It's surely got that meaning of verso in mind, plus versatile, and verse (a hat tip to the fact that Logos is, first of all, a Bible software company, even if this brand is for trade books that aren't versified). Spelling it Vyrso is just to make it sound cool and techy. And someone else does already have the domain name verso.com.

Rosie - 

Do you think when you hit 10,000 posts, you can go back to zero? Give us all a chance to catch up! Big Smile

Thanks for your thoughts!

Well, let's see if they have a Y2K-like bug on the forum. Maybe it will automatically roll me over to zero after I hit 9999 and post one more. Smile

If a forum Y2K-like bug does not appear at 10,000 posts, wonder about 100,000 posts ? (lots of posting over many years, which is an opportunity for anyone to "catch up").  Found an old post by Bob Pritchett on 5 Jun 2009 => What do you think of web forums instead of newsgroups?  (appears Logos Forums now has 2 years of history).

Observation: appears Rosie has averaged 16 posts per day since Nov 2009 (average per day increased after accepting MVP invitation).

Keep Smiling Smile

FWIW - I wondered if verso was related to vice versa; interesting entry at www.phrases.org.uk

 

Vice versa

Meaning

The reverse of the previous statement, with the main items transposed. Vice versa originates as Latin, with the literal translation being 'the other way round' or 'the position being reversed', but is now fully absorbed into English.

 

The phrase is usually used to imply the complement of a statement without expressing as much in words. For example:

 

"Fish can't live where we are most comfortable, and vice versa".

It is often misspelt as visa versa.

 

Origin

The English language has many expressions that refer to things being the wrong way around - 'inside out', 'upside down', 'topsy-turvy', 'the cart before the horse', 'arsy versy' etc.

Even the commonplace word 'preposterous' literally means 'back-to-front'. This extravagance may be accounted for by an age-old English preoccupation with the supernatural and things that are not as they should be - the struggle between good and evil in other words.
