This page describes the hostnames I use for my computers, and the computers themselves. Nerd stuff, I just like talking about this.

The pattern i'm using to assign hostnames is rather basic - a, b, c, etc, then come up with a word that start with that.

Some hosts don't follow that rule intentionally because they are deemed not worthy. Remote servers would be worthy but are also excluded.

main pattern

alli

Old desktop PC. Pentium II 350mhz. Replaced by bolsa.

Named after a certain girl.

bolsa

Current desktop PC. Core 2 duo E8400 3ghz @ 3826mhz.

Named after an old friend of mine (yes, it means "bag")

carl0s

Current network "router" (as seen above). Pentium II 400mhz. Bought it relatively recently, actually (2009?). It was cheap. A compaq something, they had lots of those.

Named after the operating system used in a guide to "hack the gibson" written a guy called Caco_Patane.

dante

Old desktop PC that I didn't use. Forgot the specs, some pentium D iirc. It's gone.

I didn't pick the name.

edenspring

My first laptop. Died in 2013. RIP.

Named after track #3 of the album "The Gallery" of Dark Tranquillity.

futari

My current phone. Motorola milestone 1. Trying really hard to keep up with the requirements of current android apps.

Named after the japanese word for "pair" or "two people".

grandeur

My current laptop. Dell something.

Named after track #10 of the album "The Gallery" of Dark Tranquillity, as some kind of spiritual successor to edenspring.
