I think with "wube" it's like with "ßilk": avoid taking your name by others by creating a name, that doesn't exist (and in my case cannot). ;)

Sorry, ssilk, but I have no idea what you want to say. Could you rephrase your sentence?

Cube is a name, which is quite often used. So he choosed wube when his name is already taken. I guess it's becoming a running gag somehow, or - more probable - there is something I'm missing here. :)

I choosed ssilk, cause it isn't a real name and in my case also right written as "ßilk", which is an impossible word, cause the sharp s cannot stand at the beginning of a word.

Its polish proounciation of the letters WB, which stand for "wszystko będzie". Don't ask me why polish ... slpwnd says it is an internal joke, but I don't get it :-)

I think this "hint" makes it clear:
http://de.bab.la/woerterbuch/polnisch-d ... zie-dobrze
Translation: This is an extremly ironic sentence.The direct translation is "everything is (fine)" (*). In South-Germany we would say perhaps "Passt scho", which means "Everthing fits (but really doesn't - do you have an insurance?)". It's a cool idea to name a company, which does (in fact) nearly compromissless good software (an alpha version game with that quality?!) like so. :)

(*) Like in this film:
