I'm getting a new dual Opteron system soon, and I'm trying to decide what to call it. I went for the "childhood fears" theme for my network and people gave me a bunch of good ideas. I think I want to call the system 'giant' (kinda predictable), 'bats' (since it has more than one processor and bats swarm), or 'attic' because it's my favorite of all the ones people suggested.

I think though, that I may rename my file/webserver 'attic' just because it fits well. It's the musty old place you store all your stuff in.

Hmmm...

Yup, attic sounds entirely appropriate ;)

Other fears:

Big Dog
Chicken
Public Humiliation
Peer Group
No Recess
New Teacher
Might Bite
Ugly Bug

I think I like the last two the most. Especially "MightBite" :-)

Big dog has potential. I was looking for those fears that are more irrational and subconcious. Things that loom larger than life in the mind. Something you could write a Stephen King novel around.

I'll have to think about it a bit more. I have a day or two to decide. :-)
