The naming scheme of systems in the hackspace (hostname) is "people involved in computing"  . This includes pioneers in similar relevant fields. Please note that pronunciation and spelling difficulties may rule out names like Dijkstra, Kay and Hoare.
Names used on systems no longer in use.
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
