Intersting topic.

At uni there were loads of servers dotted all over the various buildings and the admin guys used to give them names with historical meaning or something to do with greeks I can't quite remember. I remember they had a 'helios' server which I used quite a bit. I remember one of the network guys telling me there meanings and they where far deeper than one would think.

The first place I worked for named all there server after animals I have to admit it does make them easier to remember as an admin.

My own machine is named 'Anduin'. I have a machine called 'labrynth'. I know my spellings aren't correct but google doesn't quite work when your installing windows. The laptop is called 'ladybird'. And they run on the wireless network 'Attrition'.

I prefer functionality over beauty. I name mine after the processors they use.

Main- XP2500b (for barton core)
Server- XP2500server (same proc, couldn't have the same name)
utility- CEL1000 (haven't turned this one on in months, but it's there if I need it, likely to become a linux box soon)
Laptop-IBM1000 (700 mhz P2... thought it was faster when I bought it (used), been too lazy to change it)
Mac Mini- I actually don't remember what I named it, or if it named itself.

future media server- no name yet, it's a case with parts in it at the moment. (missing HD)

right, new comp, new name


its old name, before it died was uber box, then as a dying request [as it was being partitioned] it felt shamed and changed its name to "ouch stop kicking me" then after a full legal xp pro install [and the mysterious disappearance of my soul(?)] i now call it baby, and that one time when it crapped out on my, a dell.


needless to say, mother got very angry..

now i call it baby and im sure ill call it something else in about 5 minutes, probably a four letter word..


cant wait to have mac osx on this....

My nodes (computers) are on a network I call Logic so I call them all something and then Logic. My main computer is called CipherLogic where I do most browsing and Decrypting and Encrypting tasks. My server is called LinuxLogic (you only get one guess as to why:D) Then I have a render farm and each node is like RF1 Logic, RF2 Logic, then I have a cluster and each node is Hippy1Logic, I chose hippy based on High Performance
PC cluster, and instead of calling them the HipLogic after a body part that breaks a lot as it get older (*Hugs all old people in the world*) I went with hippy....ha now that i think about it hippy is worse but hey it's linux and linux is free like Hippies. lol

my main tower is called wilma and my secondary tower is called betty and my laptop is call mobile1. the reason behind the wilma name is that my mom refused to call any of my pets by wilma due to if they got out. she was not going around the neighborhood calling for wilma or betty. so I figured that was the next best thing.

My comp is called Voltaire, for it is a smart and screwy bastard, my house's workgroup is called the Leech, not too surprisingly.

Apart from that im fairly functional (hds called Win32,Win64,Linux), but i do have a prick of the hard drive that started of as Virgin Soil, got renamed Maxtor sux, and is now known as Cursed Earth.

I cant wait till the day i can justify a little Hd golf....

My old PowerBook is sporkintosh.
My desktop at my apartment is sporkintel.
My netbook is sporkbook.

I'm not very creative.

One of my roommates named his file server "glenda", and since it frequently crashes, we'll often hear him yell from his room: "GLENDA THAT BI***!"

I wanna name her Dottie after my wife. She's a vicious life-sucking bitch from which there is no escape. ...
