Mee.Nu Welcomes Careful Haatons

A long time ago, I set a rule for the host names I use around here.
  • Anime schoolgirls
  • Whose names are colours
  • With supernatural powers
  • Who are the main characters in eponymous shows

Sometimes I cheat a bit because there's not that many that hit all the requirements.  Sakura of Cardcaptor Sakura, yes, and Midori of Midori no Hibi.  But I've also used Mikan from Gakuen Alice, Aoi from Ai Yori Aoshi, Kurumi from Steel Angel Kurumi, and Akane from Ranma Â½.

Our brand new server is named Akai.

As in Akai Haato.

As in Haachama.

Anime?  Yes, Hololive Graffiti is one of the top rated shows on MyAnimeList.
Schoolgirl?  She just graduated high school here in Australia four months ago, so yes to that.
Name is a colour?  Yes, her name translates to Red Heart.
Supernatural powers?  She escaped from Australia during a lockdown and ate a tarantula live on YouTube.  Check.
Main characters in eponymous shows?  Ye - Dammit she changed it back.

Don't care.  Welcome Akai!

The virtual servers on a given host are named after the other girls in the show, which in this case gives me (currently) 43 to choose from, including Haachama, because the server is named Akai.



Update:

I mean, at my day job we just got a 128-core Epyc system.  I can't even take a screenshot of that one.  But this one is mine.  Ours.  Yes, that's what I meant, ours.  Totally.

1 Hi yo.
I guess you're not doing the tech update at Ace's so I thought I'd stop in and say hi. I suspected as much so I made your blog a favorite for future reference.
Have fun.

3 Hi Pixy,   Not to make this the Ace tech support thread, but in the latest set of changes the RSS feed seems to have gone back to the older feed that still creates article links pointing to minx.cc.
Minx.cc pointing feed is at: http://ace.mu.nu/index.rdf and referenced on the main page.
The feed that worked on the backup machine and now fails (server not found) was at: https://ace.mu.nu/feed/atom  This feed was showing on the main page of the emergency server.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
