    Server/comp names


    I'm bored...so I thought I'd make a thread where you can post the names of your various boxes, and why you named them so.

    Zeus - Athlon 64 main rig. Named after the God of the Gods, Zeus. This box is all powerful.
    Janus - Duron secondary box/server. Named after the God of Doors (yea, I did a bit of googling)
    Odysseus - Road-Warrior. Named after the Hero that lead the Greek army inside the Trojan Horse to conquer Troy.

    Well, I was going to say I don't have any real names. But I just got an inspiration.

    My server's name will be Gordon
    My Main desktop computer will be Nihilanth and my older spare computer will be Gonarch.

    Any big Half-life fan should know what I'm getting at

    There's another thread here not too long ago on the same topic with some interesting posts. I like to one that used names in the solar system. Except for one, I use names that go with the motherboard or processor:
    • bluedawn - Intergraph machine with dual PIIIs. My workstation.
      asussrvr - Server
      amdduron - My "sandbox"
    I almost forgot:
    • elite486 - 32Mb ram and over 1000Mb in hard drives.
    /IMHO
    //got nothin'
    ///this use to look better
