Once you spend enough time with servers, sysadmin and making sense of it, eventually you try to find a consistent naming scheme for hostnames and such.

Lurkfriends, what's your system for coming up with server names?

@rlafuente i name my machines after ancient hellenic philosophers, with the -ICS suffix (:

@vidak is that an acronym? Or is it because "Socratics" or "Aristotlics" sounds super fun?
