The part about Ram transferring his remaining energy into Flynn comes from an early version of the script, found here, which had different dialog and a number of scenes that were not used, such as Ram training new conscripts with Jai Alai cestas. For Ram's final scene in the movie, his energy appeared to scatter over the floor of the Recognizer as he derezzed; there was no visual or verbal indication that he had transferred it to Flynn, so that part of the sentence should probably be removed.

Hey, Seth Kennon, great catch on Ram's in-universe acronym. "Retirement Account Manager" fits perfectly as an early-eighties name for a desktop actuarial program written for a big insurance company. You've just made a whole slew of Ram fans really happy! -Infiniteviking (talk) 04:47, May 14, 2015 (UTC)

Somebody undid my amendment on the grounds of "Too much speculation" :/

Aw. :/ Looks like that was WarBlade, our admin here. Reversions happen now and then.
I admit I can understand why in this case--"most likely" is a dangerous phrase on a wiki unless backed up by canon allusions or real-world evidence. The name is very fitting, but isn't a well-known tech phrase or the name of a real '80s program (that I know of), and was never alluded to in canon. If there are real-life programs out there called "Retirement Account Manager" (as the name of the program rather than a description of what it does), it would more properly fall into this section. (As an example, Cyrus and Beck were "most likely" named after the Cyrus-Beck Algorithm; this likelihood is reinforced by the real-world existence of the algorithm with both their names. If a real-life "Retirement Account Manager" program could be found, an acceptable wording would probably be along the lines of "A real-world program with this name is ___, developed by ___.")
I still like it, though, and will be incorporating it into my own offsite speculation about the character's development. So thanks all the same. :) -Infiniteviking (talk) 15:24, May 14, 2015 (UTC)
