I found a wiki once on machine naming conventions, based on how many pcs you wanted to name. Ive lost the address so if anyone knows of it please post.
"Vandalised" and "Broken" ? :D
you missed out "Stolen"
At my old job we had different colour schemes for each IT suite, red, green, blue, yellow, white, orange, then the computers were red01, green01 etc
"Mr X is in the vomit yellow IT suite"...yep, I can see that...:D
I had an idea for our ICT suites. We recently had a well-respected teacher die and also our Chair of Governors who was a keen ICT man. So I thought we could name the suites after them.
I used to work somewhere where all the servers were Simpsons characters too. Very funny talking to techies about work stuff :)
We use names of moons and stars now but we still have comedy names on a few.
Hehehehe we did the same thing here. Really funny over the radio saying Barts gone down etc.
Used to name our servers after mythological creatures, ie. Hydra, Gryfin, Phoenix, our switchgear after trek characters (Picard and Kirk were core and Uhura was naturally our comms router). The rooms were just 'Room #-PC #'.
Now were std RM so it's Sitecode-Device-Room-#.
