Re: What System Do You Have For Naming Your Devices?

@CSC4:  Obviously a FiM theme, but I've seen antagonist-themed wallpapers and background characters in your screenshots.  Town names like Baltimare are another possibility, as are MacGuffins, gluefics... tongue

Re: What System Do You Have For Naming Your Devices?

I try to make my names sound a bit complicated, intimidating, & generally ambiguous, for security reasons. In the event someone tries to hack into any of the computers in my house, names like Mori-System, U-1028, MG5420, & Toshiba (my mom named our shared laptop) would probably throw off some neighborhood hacker with nothing better to do than break into people's machines  cool

Re: What System Do You Have For Naming Your Devices?

Fighting back a tendency to name every single one of my systems (and all of the VMs on them) SkyNet, I have started using a boring naming convention that I "borrowed" from a former employer... a three character location code followed by the last six digits of the MAC address.


Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.

Re: What System Do You Have For Naming Your Devices?

I did not relaly have a naming scheme for years, but for desktops I settled for characters or creatures from the ancient Japanese mythology quite some time ago. Everything network related - network equipment, storage, servers - is more practically named.

Re: What System Do You Have For Naming Your Devices?

At work, we have a system and we follow it for the servers.

<abbreviation><function><number><environment>

for the workstations, it's a little different... mine is named after me (it's on Jessie), and the laptop is similar (it runs openSUSE 13.1 RC2 right now). 

At home, I use Biblical names. Currently...
- ebenezer is the Arch laptop... might get reinstalled. If I feel like it...   
- melchizedek is the openSUSE MacBookPro 1,1 that has no battery and is the current desktop.
- onesimus is the netbook (Debian stable with backports). Currently sitting in a desk drawer. 
- nicodemus is the retired Dell desktop. Currently in a box with my other computer parts.

The printer is named brother, the NAS is called blackbox, and the router is buffalo. pretty self-explanatory there.
I can't remember what my wife's MacBook Pro is called.

Re: What System Do You Have For Naming Your Devices?

No real naming convention here.

My desktop is flickerluke260

My laptop is flickerluke7

My server is tony-server

My raspberry pi ssh gateway is simply gateway

And my phone is Dr_Theopolis (A little too geeky that one)

Cheers,

T

Re: What System Do You Have For Naming Your Devices?

Went through a phase where it was all Civil War battles and Confederate generals. So it was stonewall, longstreet, etc @shiloh, @antietam, @manassas. Shakespeare creeps in a lot. I think half of my usb flash drives are named mercutio.
Currently the laptop is all taken from the life and works of William S Burroughs so its lee@interzone with devices and drives named things like benway, junky, queer.

Re: What System Do You Have For Naming Your Devices?

I don't have a real system...I usually name my devices based on their distinctive features. My macbook for example is called Macbeth (I also have the habit of naming my orchids after Shakespeare characters...). The little fellow who runs #! now is Sharky since Samsung described the design of the NF210 as 'inspired by a shark'.

Re: What System Do You Have For Naming Your Devices?

Re: What System Do You Have For Naming Your Devices?

My old laptop (that I use as a desktop at home) is bigdog (#! Waldorf).
The awesomely powerful work laptop is powerhound(Linux Mint XFCE).
A 'spare' work server is named swanson (#! Statler).
My mini laptop (on loan at the mo) is gravybox(#!W).
My old desktop PC is workhorse which I use as a backup server(Debian).
And my raspberry pi is err... pi(Raspbmc).
I also have a rooted Nook Simple Touch running Android.  I really don't like Android and consequently it doesn't deserve a name.

EDIT: So I don't think there's a system as such...
