"Throughout my working life (I recently retired) I harboured a secret Unix hostname convention. I never dated use it:

1: Name your hosts after common Unix commands

2: Write complicated and undocumented shell scripts to do mysterious things between them

3: Resign"

And make life hell for the PFY. Never change.
