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. These can be recycled with care after a sensible period of time.

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

Off-site Servers

  • Turing Bitfolk VM - sensitive public services (membership DB, website, LDAP), UK Hackspace Foundation web site
  • Church DigitalOcean droplet - new machine for sensitive public services
  • Knuth DigitalOcean droplet - less-sensitive public services (wiki)

Infrastructure

  • Babbage general purpose server in the space, moribund
  • Bell Asterisk IP Telephony Server
  • Bruce Network CCTV Server
  • Booch emoncms power monitoring raspberry pi thing [3]
  • Boole main router, dhcp, dns, ntp, syslog etc. [4]
  • Colin sort of fileserver, was netbootyboxxy [5]
  • Denning network services machine (ldap/spacenet, netboot, zoneminder) (was boole) [6].
  • Gill environment monitoring Raspberry Pi [7]
  • Hopper vending machine
  • Hamming runs the board above the frontdoor and ?sixteen and the big clock. [8]
  • Lamarr hypervisor for VMs
    • Chomsky new general purpose box (replacement for Babbage)
    • ACServer ACnode server
    • Adminstuff a poorly but accurately named server for admin "stuff"
    • Services Importantish services that were on babbage, robonaut etc
  • Wilkes front doorbot (Like Perlman) [9]
  • Perlman back doorbot (like Wilkes) [10]
  • Dennis - Acnode debuging box
  • Flowers - one of the Project:TreeOfScreens machines
  • Tanenbaum - the other Project:TreeOfScreens machine
  • Markov Robotics group machine controlling the Staubli
  • [[11]] Robotic group Dell optiplex for remote work

PCs/Laptops/Printers

See Laboratory 24/Network for details on these machines.

Potential new machines currently under discussion

Potential names

Please be cautious when adding to this list. Pronunciation and spelling difficulties may rule out names like Dijkstra, Kay and Hoare. Make sure that the name can be pronounced, written unambiguously from hearing it, and does not sound like another word. This probably means puns are unsuitable.


Potential names on the edge of the scheme

Don't be afraid to use these, especially if they're meaningful to you, but please try to include a short justification for why the Hackspace should care about them.

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?
