I remember at $JOB-2 the first of our HPC systems had been all racked up 
but it wasn't until I had was in the datacentre in the CentOS 5 
installer saying "OK, now I *really* need a hostname for this machine" 
that we finally agreed what to call it.

..and that how Bruce was named.

(and no, not a Monty Python reference, but a homage to a mentor of my 
then boss who got him into HPC and who had recently died)
