Hostnames!

As you may have noticed, recently I've been setting up some new systems --- mostly VMs on my new server.

I name my servers alphabetically after UNESCO heritage sites. You can also take a look at my current names.

My new server is now lushan (UNESCO WP), a pretty awesome looking mountain with spiritual significance in China.

My main VM, which currently serves my website and will be taking over copan's role serving DNS and mail as well, is called masada (UNESCO WP) --- an old Judean fortress that shares a name with a fairly important planet in the Honor Harrington series.

For N, my leading candidates are:

  • Nessebar (UNESCO WP), home of a variety of historic buildings
  • Novgorod (UNESCO WP), a former Russian capital

I haven't found any names yet for O --- if you can find something that matches my naming scheme and sounds awesome, let me know.

For P:

  • Pirin (UNESCO WP), another awesome mountain range
  • Potosi (UNESCO WP), an old, massive industrial complex (as a bonus, it's in South America, which I think is currently under-represented amongst my names)

I encourage people to weigh in on what names I should pick, or suggest new ones (especially for the letters I don't having anything for yet).

Hostnames!

The post is great to encourage people to get some idea through it. You can add mla citation to make your site developed.

Well, if you are still taking votes for P, I vote Potosi.

olinda and novgorod

Oh, yeah, I ended up going with "olinda" (this machine, renamed from "masada", to leave "masada" (a fortress) available as a name for a KDC) and "novgorod" (my new dialup, roughly replacing gwynedd).

I vote for Oporto! I like the continuously occupied for 2000 years line...

O Possibilities

I'm currently leaning towards one of the following for O:

Also awesome is Olympia, though I'm thinking I may grab that as a CNAME.

Thoughts?

Odessa

Sadly, odessa.mit.edu is already taken, and UNESCO doesn't appear to like Odessa anyway...

For the N's, I prefer Novgorod, but I'm probably biased. For the P's, I think "Pirin" sounds much more like a computer name than "Potosi" does, even though the latter sounds like a much more awesome place. And for O... Odessa is pretty cool?
