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

Old names

Names used on systems no longer in use.

  • Knuth

Current names

See Laboratory 24/Network for details on these machines.

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
