Goons, what's the name of your PCs\Servers\Network? Do you have a theme? If it's obscure, educate us

PC: Yomiko She's a librarian from a series called Read or Die. My PC is also my current file server as well hence the name

Network: Stormstout Brewery. This is an instance in WoW and I created the network back when I was playing. I need to change it.

Seriouspost:

We have used a standard of company shortform - username for our computers, like "ABC-JOHOL" where ABC is company and JOHOL is two first characters of first name and three first of last name "John Holmes". We've been playing with the idea of switching to using "john.holmes" as username, but then we can't have a matching computername (abc-john.holmes is both too long and contains a dot).

Any suggestions? We would like to have a logical connection between username and computername to make it easier to remote control computers.


Servernames are just boring "FUNCTION" names.. like "EXCHANGE" and "ORACLE".

Note: The cereal box has not been edited at all. It is just a cereal box that the wearer places on head.

My old tower had the standard 2 LED setup but only one of them worked, so I named it Odin, which got carried over when I got my new tower. My network, then, is Bifrost, and I changed the names of my Kindle and HTC One to Huginn and Muninn.

It's pretty nerdy I admit but I played a lot of Age of Mythology as a kid so

Current WiFi network name is The Orgasmotorium. I had to change it temporarily when a nice, elderly downstairs neighbour with no PC asked if his visiting son could connect his laptop to my WiFi, if I had one.

Previous network names have been Sorry About My Terrible Taste in Music and SORRY ABOUT THE NOISE WHEN WE gently caress. I have been completely celibate for years.

(I know the last two are longer than 32 characters. They aren't in my language, which isn't English)

LIEK HAI2U!

Current naming scheme for my computers is Star Wars planets.

Main Desktop: Coruscant
Laptop: Dantooine
Wife Laptop: Tatooine
Work Desktop (in the office): Kessel
Work Laptop: Hoth

When I had to remote into my work desktop from home, I jokingly referred to it as "The Kessel Run".

This is now less clever that my two above-mentioned work computers no longer exist (I'm no longer with that company), and I'm tiring of the Star Wars theme. I like the NASA theme someone had earlier, if I move into a house this year I'll rebuild my network and probably change scheme to that. Name desktops after space shuttles (Discovery, Endeavour, Atlantis), the server Houston (we've had a problem).
