a “recent” meme via Maco:
I’ve had three major naming schemes with my ICT appliance/hardware. First one started on 2003, with my first computer resurrected as a home server. It was named as pingu, for its penguin soul and also for its Swiss namesake animation series. Later, as I moved to using Linux on my personal desktop (and later laptop), my computers got names like nanook (I remember doing a GNOME splashscreen out of that Wikimedia Commons picture), auviq, perhaps even orca. Related to those came Finnish words for snow, lumi, kinos, nuoska, loska.
Later I got employed by COSS for my first “Real Job”. By that time I had developed a caffeine addiction and had to compensate the horrible tar side product also referred as “coffee” at the office. So started a new naming scheme for computers at work. Came mocha, cappuccino, espresso, macchiato, latte, lumumba, kahlua.
Currently I work for Nomovok and my whole ICT hardware has gone through a total overhaul. I urgently needed some kind of a scheme to name my loved tools. So now, I’m living in the era of <drumroll /> Winnie the Pooh scheme:
Kengu – homeserver – Kanga
Tikru – desktop – Tigger
Kani – laptop – Rabbit
Puh – Nokia 6021 – Pooh
Nasu – Nokia N95 – Piglet
Ruu – Nokia IT 770 – Roo
Ihaa – external 320GB hard drive – Eeyore
Möhköfantti – Samsung SCX-4200 – Heffalump
And they all live in…
