View Full Version : I can't name servers

Caution! Entering Tech Support Zone.

One of my clients is a law firm that handles personnel injury claims. In
my struggle to give their new server a name, besides server, I came up
with ouch.

I would like to change it to something a little more respectable but I
still have the same "what to name it" problem. I have already ruled out
quityerbellyachin and youoweme.

I could name it with their initials but that has changed a few times over
the ~15 years I've worked with them. I think they keep me around because
they feel sorry for me.

So. What to name their server ...?

Exiting Tech Support Zone. Have a nice day.

Whilst I can think of lots of names relating to personnel injury
claims(!) the only clean ones I've come up with are:

accident
money
cash (think cash slash username ... !)

"Bethselamin" is nice and subtle, as one has to be extremely familiar
with The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy radio series to understand the
joke.

Okay, for those who didn't get it:

Magum, as in Magnum, PI. PI is also an abbreviation for Personal
Injury. You really had to think about it, and it loses something in
having to be explained. : )

One law firm I worked for named their printers after planets. The girls
sent their print jobs to Venus and the guys to Mars. They only had 6
printers so naming didn't get far enough out into the solar system to get
embarrassing.

No problem, Ken. I knew the reference would be "too old" for some

because he's OLD. : )

Two characters is, for some systems, too short for a server name. ;)

But you're the one who spelt it "fourtytwo". ;)

I'll bet your daughters feel sorry for you and they just want you to
think that they think you're cool even though you're older than dirt -
just like me. Well, you are still a little muddy behind the ears.
