Server Names


#1

So, where do you all come up with the names for your servers? I’m on nicholas-gilman for the account I just set up, last time I was on brazilwood - do you all just pull the names out of a hat? And who’s Nicholas Gilman anyway?

Just curious :slight_smile:

Hi there,

First - this is who he was http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicholas_Gilman

Second - Great Question! I have been wondering the same thing for over a year! I asked and it turns out they generated randomly but often with a theme. Example, we have a few Old school gangsters like Dillinger and Capone etc. that all got named that way when a new rack of servers went online.

I wish there was more rhyme and reason to it, but that’s it.

If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to ask us

Thanks!
Matt C

Nice! Thanks for satisfying my curiosity. I’m glad it’s that Nicholas Gilman, and not the one I googled :slight_smile:
