After years of naming things after stuff, and then at some point do a lack of creativity or caring on
my part. I've come to the conclusion that code names are dumb. Yeah you can get exited about the
cool name and what not, but at some point in time your going to have to teach someone else what
it actually means, or your going to forget.
We used to name all of our servers after birds, this was fine when there were 3 or 4 of them. After
30+ this was no longer any fun, but a problem.
