We control the horizontal. We control the vertical.

One of the nice things about moving into the house is that I have a chance to design and build exactly the home network that I want. I took the excuse opportunity to upgrade to an 802.11g router, and I expect to have a wireless bridge to connect to the computers that will eventually live upstairs. The cable modem is in, and the speed is quite nice thankyouverymuch.

I’ll also rebuild one of my Linux boxes (and likely retire the other) for the move. This got me thinking about naming schemes. I name all of my machines after muppets*, and the wireless network is named accordingly, which got a raised eyebrow from Christine.

What do you call your machines?

* – this is why, after building a virtual PC image at home, I’m now blocked from the network in one of our offices.
