Or, a list of names for prgmr.com physical servers.

12 labors of Hercules

Beginning with the quad-core Intel machines, we use the Twelve Labors of Hercules.

  1. lion - console from boar
  2. hydra - hydra and older need partitions rather than lvextend for additional disk space.
  3. hind - decommissioned
  4. boar - decommissioned and moved to test.
  5. stables
  6. birds
  7. bull
  8. mares
  9. girdle

(Bonus quest from The Onion).

Kaguya's Impossible Requests

Post-Hercules, we're using Kaguya's impossible requests.

That night, Taketori no Okina told the five princes what each of them must bring. The first was told to bring her the stone begging bowl of the Buddha from India. The second was told to retrieve a jewelled branch from the island of Penglai[4]. The third was told to seek the legendary robe of the fire-rat of China. The fourth must retrieve a colored jewel from a dragon's neck. The final prince was told to find the seashell treasure of the swallows.

  1. bowl dual quad core amd 2378, 4 disks, striped mirror
  2. branch dual quad core amd 2374 HE (four disks, striped mirror. 1 bad disk, fix now!)
  3. robe dual quad core amd 2378 w/ 32gib ram, 2 disks,
  4. jewel dual quad core E5504 - 4 disks, striped mirror, funny config- get users off of this.
  5. seashell

Thirteen Treasures of the Island of Britain

Having run through Kaguya, we're moving on to the Thirteen Treasures of the Island of Britain.

  1. sword
  2. hamper - console from hydra
  3. horn
  4. chariot
  5. halter
  6. knife
  7. cauldron
  8. whetstone
  9. coat
  10. crock
  11. dish - missing many domu kernel mod
  12. chessboard - out of action... bios upgrade badness?
  13. mantle - 32GiB single-socket amd G34

Note that we're coming perilously close to a collision -- I especially like the clothing ("girdle", "robe", "coat", and "mantle") and crockery ("bowl", "cauldron", "crock", "dish"). Weaponry, surprisingly enough, only shows up twice. The preponderance of animals, we may assume, is due to some predilection on the part of the Greeks.

Eight Treasures

Unless someone has a better idea, the Chinese provide the next list:

  1. pearl - 32GiB 8 core amd G34 system
  2. lozenges 1012G-mtf 8 core/32G ram system.
  3. chime 1012G-mtf 8 core/32G ram system. (<1024)
  4. horns - skipping. too much like 'horn'.
  5. coins - 1012G-mtf 8 core/32G ram system. (>1024)
  6. ingot
  7. coral
  8. scepter

Eight Principles of Yong

And the next:

  1. stone
  2. table
  3. pillar
  4. pincer
  5. tooth
  6. (horn skipped)
  7. beak ('bird' is too close to birds, and 'pecking' just sounds silly.)
  8. dao
