The Top Ten names for the new Fort Hays State University Web server

A while back this site had a monthly newsletter.  We had to drop it for various reasons but while it was active I received a note from a student at Fort Hays State University in Kansas letting me know that he was changing his e-mail address.   He was helping set up two new web servers at his university, the server and the server.  I was curious why the second server was called "bigcat" so I asked.   He told me that at Fort Hays State University their sports teams were known as the "Tigers" and the "bigcat" server was to go along with the "tiger" theme.   I wrote back a joke that they should call the server "coughed.up.a.big.furball".

Several weeks passed and he wrote back that they were going to add another server and he had suggested that they call it "furball".   His colleagues laughed but didn't take him seriously, so he asked me if I could come up with some other cat related names.   My serious answer was to call it "Bengal", but I had a few more funny ideas. So with a nod to DAVID LETTERMAN (another Hoosier, like me) here are:



Later the student wrote back that they'd settled on the name "alleycat" for their server.
