    However the units collectively in their nice HP cabinet are known as Bertha (which always makes me hum the theme tune)
    And here's me thinking they would be called Anfield , Gerrard etc

    *Well, calling it a server is a bit grand really - it runs Debian on an old PIII Celeron 600 laptop, running Samba, Apache, PHP and MySQL for file server, intranet server and playing with Moodle!

    Re: Server names - what do you call yours?

    We are really sad here, our servers are all called names from the Star Trek Sci series.

    We use the following:
    Voyager, Enterprise, Delta-Flyer, Defiant, Concorde, Wellington & DS9

    How sad are we?
    Could not go with the boring traditioanl server 1 to whatever.

    Re: Server names - what do you call yours?

    Our school domain uses Server1, Server2, Server3 etc.

    I've built networks for LAN parties over the years with various different naming conventions... Weebl and Bob, Shodan and Xerxes, or more recently, Daedalus, Icarus and Helios.

    Re: Server names - what do you call yours?

    We used to have Jeffrey, George, Freddy, Rod & Jane and still have Bungle % Zippy (both going this summer)

    We have changed to CURRIC01, ADMIN01, PRINT01 etc. A bit boring but it gives us an idea of function.

    Cheers

    Alan
