Where I come from C++ is a computing language, so named because it is a successor to C and C++ is a shorthand command in C for "increment the integer variable C".  So if someone is searching the Web for help in C++ programming this is one more irrelevant hit to come up.   If, on the other hand, they are searching for advise on coffee roasting they may not have a clue as to what "HG+DB" stands for.

Actually, C++ is City plus-plus, which I mean is roasted past the end of 1st crack, not quite to 2nd crack. No snaps of 2nd have been heard; I expect it's around 435 degrees in the bean mass, or thereabouts.

But hey, I love assembling my Java(tm) at C++.   ;)
