I'm hoping we're nearing the end of beta soon, but even if we aren't, our chatroom name is so bland. "Code Golf." Look at all the creative names others have thought up:
- "Root Access" for Super User
- "The DMZ" for Security
- "The Renderfarm" for Blender
- "The Litter Box" for Pets
- "The Hangar" for Aviation
- "You Are Here" for Travel
- "The Water Cooler" for The Workplace
- "The Whiteboard" for Programmers
Can we think of a better name for our chatroom?
Only one idea per answer, please. Vote up the ideas that you like!

Well, the traditional generic name for the country club bar is "the nineteenth hole", which suggests The Nineteenth Byte or something like that.

It's the shortest name I could find.

The 10011th Hole, riffing on the 19th hole.
@dmckee is here earlier with a riff on the same premise, but I a) arrived at mine independently, and b) rather like the idea of using binary. So you've got options.

Hmm.. The Briefing Room because we make short (brief) code..? And it's a chat room of course.

The Press of Inspiration alludes vaguely to the work of squeezing out a few more bytes in code golf
