I think he is promoting a new wiki this time around, one for ‘dremahost customners.’ :stuck_out_tongue:

On Topic: Is it just me, or are many of the DreamHost servers named after streets in LA?

Some of them are, and some are also the same as some neighborhood or district names (and some are both, where the term refers to both a street and a district). All those combined are only a smallish percentage of the names I’ve seen; maybe they went through “phase” of naming them that way at one time and then moved on to another scheme? :wink:

one question:

what all those mount shares that are on the home directory, under which users are located?

things like:
.knoop, .lisa, .margarita, .vann, etc?

I’m on “ike”, which I can’t imagine as being a street name.
I also suspect it has more to do with a “South Park” character than the dead US President of the same nick.


#22

BUGabundo,

Those are what Dreamhost calls dataglobs.

There is some background discussion on dataglobs and their use on Dreamhost also in various forum posts (just search the forum for “dataglobs”) or take a look at this post by Dreamhost Head Honcho Dallas.

I guess it is like rlparker said; The DreamHost folks went through various ‘phases’ in their naming, LA street names, Sth Park characters etc.

It must be difficult to keep coming up with original names at the rate that DreamHost adds servers :slight_smile:

I’ve heard that all have been named “That piece of sh*t” at various times.

They claim it’s a pointer to the broken one(s). It’s a term of infection… I mean affection.

Wholly

Many years ago (1998), I was on a Dreamhost machine named Jezebel - though she was commonly referred to as “Jezebel, that fickle b!tch!” :wink:
