The naming scheme of systems in the hackspace (hostname) is "people involved in computing" [1] [2]. This includes pioneers in similar relevant fields. Please note that pronunciation and spelling difficulties may rule out names like Dijkstra, Kay and Hoare.

Old names

Names used on systems no longer in use.

Current names

machines should be available as hostname.lan.hackspace.org.uk from inside the space (just hostname should work). some machines are available from the outside as hostname.hack.rs or hostname.london.hackspace.org.uk

See Laboratory 24/Network for details on these machines.

Potential new machines currently under discussion

Potential names

Potential names on the edge of the scheme

Potential names not from the scheme

  • Bubbles, Buttercup & Blossom
  • FuzzyWhif
  • heck-a-tombical plus minus
  • Micropig/Spiderpig
  • NPR (No Prescription Required)
  • Pong/Ping
  • Cabbage - an alternative / backup / failover for Babbage?
