The naming scheme of systems in the hackspace is "people involved in computing". However, pronunciation issues rule out names like Dijkstra, Kay and Hoare.

We currently need a name for the computer that will be connected up to the Makerbot.

Old names

Names used on systems no longer in use.

  • Knuth

Current names

  • Babbage (Server in the space)
  • Turing (Bitfolk VM)
  • Lovelace (Workstation)

Potential names

Potential names not from the scheme

  • Pong/Ping
  • Micropig/Spiderpig
  • Bubbles, Buttercup & Blossom
