Title: What do you call you LinuxMCE system?
Post by: Aviator on April 01, 2011, 03:58:04 pm
If you could assign a name other than DCERouter to your LinuxMCE core, what would it be?  My core has assumed the nickname Jeebus.

All other machines on my home network are named after extinct birds.

my machines were named Huey, Dewey and Louie as in the drones from Silent Running, but what happens after three...

So I have DCERouter, Huey, Dewey and Louie

Maybe I should include computers and robots from other films - maybe DCERouter could be 'Mother'

SWMBO calls my core "HAL". And when it misbehaves, she can be heard calling out "I can't do that, Dave".

Cheers,
Matt.

My Core is known as MCP (Master Control Program from TRON).  My kitchen/dining MD is 'Alfred' after the butler in the Batman series.  My NAS is 'The Oracle' from Greek Mythology.  My primary router/firewall is 'Gatekeeper' (from Ghostbusters, just need a Keymaster).  My VOIP box is 'Chatterbox', general slang.  I have always loved HAL, but would never call anything automation related in my home HAL, bad luck as far as I can tell, like mentioning Macbeth in a theatre.  :-)  Great discussion topic btw!

My entire network as a whole is known by family and friends as Jarvis, after the system in IronMan.  I even have GPO's that run logon scripts to have the computers (windows PCs) talk to you when you log on.  It'll say good morning, afternoon, or evening plus the name of the person logging on and it does the opposite when shutting down.  Still working on the smart-ass sense of humor... That's definitely a long way off.

The actual Servers and computers and other components are nick named after Family Guy, Simpson's, and South Park characters.

I like you're idea klovell!
Jarvis is great for a home automation system.

Unfortunately i just saw IronMan a few days ago for the first time and therefore decided to use "SARAH" ;)

So, you're saying you didn't like Ironman? :o

Thanks, my wife actually came up with.  She came home from work one day and I had the same movie playing in the Kitchen and the Living room while I was cooking dinner, She called it Jarvis and it just kind of stuck.

I don't think that's appropriate... LMCE is a BIG system ;-)

I don't think that's appropriate for many reasons.  I'm a little bothered... I'm going to pretend that I miss understood you.

Klovell, it is a joke
you do not have to agree, or like it, it is al in good spirit.

I don't know where you're from but we don't joke like that around here.  You'll definitely catch an beaten with jokes like that, and that's not a threat, that is what it is, I've seen it happen.  People don't like it.  Unless you're best friends with the person wifes, Girlfriends, Sons and daughters are off limits. 

Again, I'm just going to pretend I miss understood you.  We're still cool, let's just keep it moving and get back on topic.

Klovell, of course i liked Ironman! In fact i turned on my ESX and started playing with all my homeautomation stuff right after watching the movie ;)
And it's a shame that i saw the movie a few days ago for the first time...

Yea, I was really excited when I saw it and of course I picked that skin first.  I don't think it's complete as it's never worked for me.  All I get is the basic skin without the buttons.
