    Default It's never not funny...

    In any big IT environment, you need some kind of naming scheme for your computers. These days we use a very sensible 8 character identifier which tells you where a machine is and what it does.
    Historically, someone established a set of servers named after the planets. We had one called Mercury, a Venus, an Earth a Mars, and inevitably, one called Uranus. The unsung genius who named this machine has given us so much silly schoolboy fun over the years. We've pinged Uranus, probed Uranus, patched Uranus, debugged Uranus and backed up Uranus (!). We once had to recover Uranus, and it gets analysed, and on one memorable occasion, penetration tested.
    Unfortunately, time passes and all these machines are getting old, so in the near future we'll be decommissioning Uranus, De licensing Uranus and, sadly, switching off and scrapping Uranus.
    To mark the occasion we're planning a 60 second silence while the spirits of Sid James and Frankie Howerd move among us.

    It's daft, I know, but in the wonderful world of 21st century It, you have to get your laughs where you can!

    We were once told off about the naming scheme in our test lab, which was getting ruder and ruder. So we invented a Greek God called Urekok, and named a machine after him. Try saying it out loud.......
