    Back in the old days... when I only had 3 devices which connected to the internet I used to call my PC's Melchior, Balthasar and Caspar - the names of the 3 wise men

    I still have those floating around although they have been joined by a bunch of random ones recently as my naming convention is failing, my PS3 is blackstormclaw, I've got an old laptop which is known as (rude word here)sandwich and numerous other devices floating round which I can't even remember what they're called.

    Take your pick.

    At home I use elements - carbon, neon, titanium, mercury, zinc etc.

    If you've not got too many (and I realise this is kind of covered in my previous thought) how about the Seven Dwarfs.. Or if you're a fan of Christmas, then Santa's Reindeer..

    At my old work, we had Galaxy, Mars (which were originally from the chocolate), then we called the next one Jupiter. I think its better with a more professional approach like we have at my place of work now with basic names (i.e. 1 word brief description of the server "Fileserve" for example).

    I once got away with: Alice, Bob, Chastity, Des, Eve,..

    Mini-challenge: One of them is the odd one out (from an Evelyn Waugh novel I'd recently read)

    My servers, and PCs for that matter are all named from League of Gentlemen. So I have Matthew and Pauline and Babs etc.

    Well sorry to fire up this thread again,
    But we now use the phonetic alphabet.

    So MIKE for MDT
    PAPA for Printers
    DELTA for DPM
    VICTOR for Virtual Box
    SIERRA for Sharepoint
    etc, etc

    We were going to rename our DC's to ROMEO and JULIET but were told that might cause havoc

    Were pretty pleased with it.

    I do - so far I have:

    #Lister
    #Kryten
    and
    #Holly

    As I move my other sites forward I'll be filling out the entire cast - one site has already asked me if they can have #Rimmer
