    Bit of fun!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have a new blade enclosure with 8 blades in. It is going to deliver a 'thin client' project to the school. Now what I'm after is a novel/fun naming convention for my blades. Bearing in mind I have eight, I was thinking on the lines of naming them something daft like 'snow white' and then the seven dwarfs!

    Anybody come up with amusing/decent alternatives?????

    Famous players from Sheffield Utd's history (nicknamed The Blades)

    Characters from Eastenders...

    imagine the fun you could have announcing that"Phil Mitchel has gone down!!"

    or even"I am taking Grant Mitchell down tonight!!"

    in addition "bianca has got a screaming error Report"
    or Finally.........

    "Hey guess what Dot Cotton has just gone down on me!!"

    the karma suitra springs to mind..

    or on a more serious note*, members of S Club 7 or Blazin Squad?


    (*Serious note still not being serious, but servers named after sexual positions would not be a logical idea in a school)

    At my old place (when Bill Clinton was in Office) We installed 2 new domain controllers, one called 'Bill' and the other 'Monica'. Pureley so we could say, 'Bill was up' and 'Monica was down' - GENIUS! (well we thought at the time). Unfortunately Monica never went 'down' on us in all the time she worked in our server room - FORTUNATELY!
