Work Tip #20

Naming servers after the planets can have unintended benefits. For example, you can utter the phrase, “We’re not getting email because it keeps getting caught by Uranus” and not get fired. In addition, you get to follow up with, “The only solution is to figure out how to bypass Uranus” and “If we don’t do anything, Uranus will get clogged and then be useless”.

    I think the Uranus server would be a great place for a certain blue database product!

    We have a server named hail, because we named ours after weather patterns. It’s fun to tell people to goto hail to get their files.
