Geotechnical Engineers' Computer Names
Thousands of geotechnical engineers visit the GVL every day. Each time a computer requests connection to a WWW server, it has to reveal its identity, according to the Interent standards set up by W3C. Web servers "log" this information to a file, to know who did what, and when.
Looking at the GVL's logs we found out what the geotechnical engineers name their computers. Here is a brief list:
You know what I named mine:
pretty unimaginative, don't you think?
Among GVL users there were both cowboys and indians:
and even some ancient races were here:
But normal geotechnical engineers use more appropriate names:
Some even get more technical:
Some admire great civil engineering works:
Some want to express something, but don't say exactly what they mean:
Some of us are proud of our height and race, like tall swedes:
Some names are long:
and some are short and sweet:
Some love nuts:
Some hope to get lucky, too:
Some love outdoors, blue skies and camp fires:
Many geotechs have friends in the animal kingdom:
Some like their dogs supercharged:
Reptilian and amphibious are among all-time favorites:
Some even like flies, roaches, and bees:
Spanish selections will leave you speechless:
Others adore their car parts:
Some like to remain secret: anonymous.chevron.com
Some can't forget childhood dreams: cinderella.unm.edu
And some get planets involved in this:
Isn't neptune special? How about some fantasy? bbs.galactica.it
galactica.galactica.it -- OK, OK, we got it!
Some enjoy earthquake effects, that's for sure:
Some reflect their national character, such as...
German: sun12.cip-bau.unit-hannover.de (it's not meant to be simple or funny, it's German; it's straight to the point, functional, and robust)
Of course, if you can't think of anything else, you can always say "geotech!" like me:
New AdditionsThese came after we did this page:
I'm getting confused, is this improvement or is this getting out of hands now?
We've got two new ones from UTK:
which is nice, but what is this: DIRTYCHIPENGR.UTK.EDU
? We have yet another Zeus!
Now that's an environmentalist:
Now aren't you jealous of this one:
I wonder what they mean by this:
nameless.house.gov pistachio186224.nuts.nwu.edu ... but who's counting?
Some prefer to count their castles...
