    Work server have functional names, school initals and role, then number. So Domain Controllers are SCHDC01, SCHDC02, etc. Home machines used to be called after precious gems, i.e. Diamond, Ruby, Crystal, etc, but now they are [owner name]-[type]-[role] so tb-svr-fs or tb-vmsvr-apps, for physical file server and virtual applications server respectively.

    Ah, if it's their server, best to leave it be.

    I've always named computers/servers/APs after psychotic robots.

    Skynet, HAL-9000, TX-1000 [and over terminators], GLaDOS...


    I also, unsucessfully, tried to get every error message on HAL-9000 to read "I'm sorry, $username. I can't let you do that."

    Work ones are Mercury & Venus - we're cutting down to one 'big' server however, that's been conveniently named Jupiter . I've already decided that if I ever get to deal with a servers on my own, I'll be using Star Wars references!

    Might I recommend Bender as a future device name?

    You may, and indeed have.


    I may look into renaming my Galaxy S... It's an android, close enough.


    Le EDIT: Galaxy S is now "Bender of Robonia" on bluetooth.

    Le EDIT the second, ESQ: Now "Bender of Robonia" on google play.

    Mine are solely functional but becoming ever more cryptic as I try to get the role, version and number of servers into the NETBIOS character limit (never liked going over it for whatever reason)
