    Our school's yearbook last year was called "MMiX it Up". (This year, it was "The Eleventh Hour".)
    The greatest journey of all time, for all to see
    Every mission makes our dreams reality
    And our destiny begins with you and me
    Through all space and time, the achievement of mankind
    As we sail the sea of discovery, on heroes’ wings we fly!

    The word that keeps returning to my mind is "multiplexer". Probably some professional deformation in my head.
