The following quote was plucked from a recent web development email.
“When building a new [server] farm, create better server names … WUS is like naming a boy Sue.”
Here’s the deal … the internal names for Veer’s web servers are prefixed with the acronym ‘WUS’, theoretically representing ‘Web: United States’ or our North American-based web servers. I’ve always referred to the servers ‘wuss-oh-one’ or ‘wuss-oh-three’, but it wasn’t until this email that I realized how dumb the naming really was. Makes we wonder how we’ve named our proxy servers.
