(Interesting characteristic about machine)(integer)


For example

MOBILE2  (My tablet)

S1          (My X86 server)

DUAL1      (My dual core desktop)


Normally the integer is in order from when the machine was purchased/built. DUAL one was my first dual core desktop, S1 was my first X86 server, and MOBILE2 was my second mobile system. MOBILE1 was re purposed, and was no longer mobile.


For my embedded devices, it's pretty much whatever comes to mind


MV21  (My HP Mediavault MV2120, running Debian Etch)

HPMV  (My original HP MediaVault MV2010, running my own custom firmware)

LSLUG (My Linksys NSLU2 running Unslung)
