What is your machine's hostname and why did you name it that? - Page 4

post #31 of 37
Grew up somewhat of a crazy kid and was also an artist and I did Graffiti. I would use Lucid as my "Tag" or LD for short for Lucid Dream. This has also been my nickname since then with friends. SO my pc this round is the LD-PC.



Boot screen
Created with GIMP

My AMD rig with x4 640 was just Lucid.

End of the story goes like this... I end up in a large heap of trouble way over my head and messes up a large portion of my early youth. Lesson to be learned kids.. Stay in school, don't be crazy! thumb.gif

My old Asus EEE-PC used to be called Phil-EEE (My name is Phillip and my nickname is Philly...it stuck tongue.gif)

My current PC is Red-PC, I have no idea why I kept the silly '-PC' bit (Windows 7's fault) but the Red part is from the fact that it is my colour scheme smile.gif

Primary laptop is tinfoilfortress because, well, it's a "tinfoil fortress", everything as securely as possible, only to boot the whole thing you need: bios boot password, HDD hardware password, filesystem decryption password, user login password, and homefolder decrypt password (yes, encryption inside encryption, because I can).
Off topic, but what do you do to secure it once you're logged in? Because that's when you're most likely to targeted (eg booby-trapped websites)

Lots of things actually, tightened all the access permissions of anything that can cause harm, removed sudo access from my main user, run most of the harmful stuff completely isolated. I have a Xen server on the laptop itself, and I am running browsers and other "potential security holes" in guest OS'es there, away from all personal stuff on the host OS. Originally all this was an experiment of how "overly tinfoil hat secure" I can go tongue.gif overall performance sucks big time compared to what it could be, but it's still fast enough for me biggrin.gif

Fair play.

Have you kept a blog about this? Or do you fancy starting a new thread in here about this as I'd be interested in learning more about your set up and chatting to you further on this topic

Unfortunately I don't have blog or anything about this (I have never written any blogs at all), but I could actually create a new thread here some day about this, as I could also use it as a "notepad" for myself.. rolleyes.gif At the moment I am pretty busy, I am one of the main organizers of a lan party held next weekend, and we got a lot stuff to do, and I'm also supposed to study at the same time tongue.gif I could possibly start writing the thread at the lan party, probably during Saturday, if I got time for it, but I wont give any promises. tongue.gif

If you did fancy writing up a blog-like article, I can host it on my "news" site.
