Device Codenames


Jump to: navigation, search

On 12/4/2010 I implemented a device codename policy for my devices. Devices I own or lease are given a codename, which will be the device's hostname in some cases. Code names may not be renamed.

I choose "Animals" to be the name space because it is big enough and usually does not imply much meaning.
