Re: Help us name our boat

Isn't it bad enough trying to explain what you do for a living without naming your boat after it? ... Nautwork Appliance.

Re: Help us name our boat

I would suggest 'Gypsy Soul'.

If you want to get tech obscure, I'd go with 302 Redirect

Re: Help us name our boat

When thinking about IP it lead to thinking about autonomous systems (AS), why not "Gypsy AS Soul"?

Re: Help us Name our Boat

I thought "IP Address" would be a good choice for a liveaboard.

This one's taken, but just to share a favorite of mine:

Re: Help us Name our Boat

Oh how about "Cross Over" as in a cross over cable.

I keep looking for double entendres so you don't have to explain if you don't want to, but other geeks will get it if you tell them what you do.

Re: Help us Name our Boat

You could always go with or start with Cisco products like:

Catalyst
Nexus

Or a part like:

Blade


Or if you worked your arses off then something silly like "Oversubscribed"
