Computer names

To continue with the meme that’s going on Planet Ubuntu, here is my computers name:
– Dakara
– Vagonbrei
– Castiana
– P4X-123 (Will be used for DHCP client 123) (Milky way galaxy)
– P3R-123 (Will be used for VPN client 123) (Pegasus galaxy)

You may have recognized those names, they are all taken from Stargate SG1 and Atlantis, series that I watch for several years now.

For ISO testing, I’m usually using: so ubuntu-i386 for example.
For my development Xen VMs, I use the boring but efficient naming: xenXX (xen04 is the test VM for Ubuntu Brainstorm and the QA team websites)

My LAN routers are usually called with router- so I currently have:
– router-roubaix (Roubaix, Nord-Pas-de-Calais, FR) (VPN gateway)
– router-bevaix (Bevaix, NE, CH) (Family house)
– router-neuchatel (Neuchâtel, NE, CH) (Grandma’s house)
– router-sherbrooke (Sherbrooke, QC, CA) (Home)

And other LAN computers are usually named after their owner and their type, using . (Standard boring naming)
