    At home i usually name my boxes after cartoon charachters like, Batman,Spiderman .... my homelinux now i call Superman....

    At work its a whole other story:

    1 letter = Environment
    3 letter = Applikcation
    3 letter = Function
    1 numeric = Sequence number

    Like pwebbapp1 for ProductionWebbApplikation server number one.
