Why not use STDs as server names?

Posted on | September 3, 2009 | No Comments

During recent conversation with fellow system integrators, I suggested that it is perfectly acceptable to name your servers after sexually transmitted diseases. After all, there are plenty of very descriptive diseases, take the following possible office chatter into consideration:

Senior Admin: You, login to herpes and hop over to gential-warts, flush iptables and make sure that crabs can get access. Make sure app armor on CUPS isn’t blocking syphilis and send a test page to gonorrhea.

See? All of those fun names to use and nobody is using them.
