Example is my Pentium MMX laptop, moved from debian testing to Gentoo
last night (still love debian, just decided i want a gentoo box). It was
named SmegMachine (i love red dward) but jumped on the chance to move it
into the new scheme. I think that solitaire (live and let die) works
particularly well.

I still have my webserver, named webserv.
