Where did the website name come from?
In the episode “Gunmen of the Apocalypse” (1993), the simulant captain’s (Denis Lill) last words are, “See you in Silicon Hell!” as his ship is destroyed around him.
In “Rimmerworld” (1993) when preparing to board the wreckage of the aforementioned simulant ship for supplies, Lister says, “Let’s hope the crew are rotting in Silicon Hell along with all the photocopiers.”
In “Out of Time” (1993), when the crew believes that Lister is a mechanoid because of an unreality pocket, Kryten pushes Lister to work with the threat of wallowing in “the eternal fires of Silicon Hell.”
In “Krysis”, Kryten mentions that appliances which are pledged to the “wrong manufacturer” aren’t allowed into Silicon Heaven, and believes that it’s “so unfair that all the BlackBerries burn in Silicon Hell”.,
