I originally started out naming machines after colours - Red, Orange,
Yellow, etc., until I ran out of primary colours.

Now, most of the machines here are named after characters out of the Terry
Pratchet Discworld books.

The main fileserver is called "luggage", for obvious reasons if anybody has
read the books.. with getting on for a terrabyte of storage, it must be
approaching The Luggage's storage capacity...

Some current machines are Angua, Twyla, Detrius, Albert, Susan, Binky...

Embedded devices (routers, firewall, etc.) have functional names I'm afraid.
