on a lighter note...
enough of the world going to hell in an handbasket...let's talk about machine names. PJM noticed a really cool one
in his access logs: "Reepicheep"...like from Chronicles of Narnia
. That's definitely up there. At one point, I named all my machines after Ewoks. Yes, I'm that one person
who likes the Ewoks. My mother made me a kickass Ewok costume for Halloween in the third grade. It was very hot. It had a zipper up the back, much like the werewolf costumes from various Buffy
episodes.... Anyway, can anyone actually name more than one Ewok? Even
one Ewok? You have the famous one, Wicket W. Warrick, but them there's Wiley, Chirpa, Romba, Kneesaa, Latara, Paploo, Gwig, Malani, Mookiee, Leeni and Nippet. I'll stop there, before you think I'm a real freak. ("Before", she says. ha!)
Anyway....machine names! It's a fun (geeky) party game to play, trying to find the connection in machine names. Our two main servers now are mike and sulley. As in Monsters, Inc. As my boss said, if we actually got a separate machine to act as a firewall, we'd call it Boo. But we don't. I lost my creativity at some point, because I named my laptop "sleek". Well, I
think it is. It's shiny
, at least, and has a nice big screen.
