    New server 'code name'

    In the next few days were going to be installing our shiny new virtual server (HP DL165 G7 in case anyone is wondering) and being the original series BSG watching geek I am I was wondering if anyone had a good name of a ‘code name’ for the project.
    The servers processors are the new AMD Magny-Cours series (which was my first thought) but I was looking for something a bit more punchy.
    So I’m open to suggestions

    I'd suggest something onomyus like "Project Final Dawn" or "Project Brightsky" I find that names like these yeild the most interesting reactions from anyone who sees them written on a board or planning document

    Easy: SKYNET



    (related: I was cycling past an M.O.D. base the other day and there was a road called SKYNET DRIVE - someone with a sense of humour perhaps?)

    did you not know the MoD is up to the 5th iteration of its Skynet Program? Paradigm agrees deal with UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) for fourth Skynet 5 satellite | Paradigm

    its the beginning of the end I say!


    Something biblical is always fairly ominous - Project Abraham? Project Gomorrah?

    Did the MOD PR people not think "Hey, lets pick a name for our new project that the British public won't find overtly threatening for any reason... I know, how about Skynet?! "

    You do have wonder sometimes... Judging from the cryptic signs around there it's a signals squadron so that'd make sense.

    The MOD program came first.

    Hehe, I'm not sure if that's any better - it could mean the terminator films are based on what the MOD is planning. Anyways, sorry, back on topic.

    that was a kick ass game on the amiga.

    there you go .. The Amiga Project.

    But name the server "Useless" and get another one called "Clueless" ... the fun you can have with them names.
