There it is! The most intelligent 1st post ever created.

Although the analogy of the consequences of using a, admittedly daft, word is a little over the top.

Why Do We Name Servers the Way We Do?

bodger_uk Re:Slashdot (1397 comments)

One of the places I worked also went with the heavenly bodies. However, after Charon (mis-pronounced by everyone as Sharon) we suddenly acquired a Tracey!

As an aside, I've worked at 6 places since, and in none of the places can I remember what a single server did. I still know exactly what Pluto, Arcturus, Jupiter, Altair, Siriius etc all did. It may have been a PITA for new people to work out where a server was, but once you had it, you knew exactly what each server did, and where it was in a memory aided way, not just a "work it out in my head from the name" way. LDNPSDB001 may be clearly(!) a London Production Server with a Database on it, but Arcturus was a DB server for Marketing running DB2, and key to month end campaigns.

Why "Yahoo" Is The #1 Search Term On Google

bodger_uk Re:Self fulfilling prophecy (347 comments)

Aye I did it too. However, the yahoo search also brings up its second search box if you search for MSN search.

Now, how many people are just going to yahoo to search for other search engines to see what happens??
