[Panel 1]
[Nils]
Last load?

[Ginny]
Yes. That's madoff,
ponzi, mccloundy
and slatkin.

[Jaakko]
Do you think the managers will
ever notice our naming policy?

[Panel 2]
[Nils]
Officially they're all numbered.
slatkin is server419.

[Ginny]
Yes, but you can't call
servers that when you're
working with them.
They get all unhappy.

[Jaakko]
You should not anthropomorphise
computers. They do not like it.

[Panel 3]
[Nils]
It could be worse, it
could be cloud servers.

[Jaakko]
I know people who
do that. They call
them things like
"cluster47-web19".
Perkele!

[Ginny]
No wonder the poor things
fall over all the time.

[Panel 4]
[Jaakko]
Though on the bright side pushing
them along corridors would be
somebody else's problem.

[Nils]
And somebody else's
double overtime.

[Ginny]
And somebody else's old
server carcasses to pick
over for useful bits...
