Being Icelandic, I use various names from Norse mythology. My main box shares my middle name, Thor and my secondary box (BP6) is called Loki. My wife's box is Sif (naturally), my firewall and router is Valhalla. My webserver goes by the name of Sleipnir.
Dude! That's an awesome naming scheme.

So, four dual-port gigabit ethernet cards in the webserver then? ;)

When I worked at Autodesk out in California, all the Solaris boxen were named. We had one group that were named after the monsters from Godzilla movies. godzilla, megalon, mothra, zero, etc. :D

This is where I was first exposed to *nix (AIX, Ultrix, SunOS/Solaris, Irix, HP-UX, VAX/VMS). 8)

Welcome to the group.

It never fails me that some of us are better with 'things then we are with people. Once several years ago I worked on a total stranger's 486. Maybe 18 months later someone asked me to fix their neighbors system, which I did...I remembered that 486 but not the owner until after we talked for about 10 minutes.

I haven't started naming my PC's yet because my kids would get mad that I remember the PC names but forget my grandkids names.
There are *almost* no bad BP6s. There are mostly bad caps.

No BP6s remaining
