Actually for 85 years, 'Flexo' has been a janitorial supply company; http://www.flexoproducts.com/ :twisted:

I needed a name for the new server, and put a call out on Twitter (I was a in a bit of a rush, had the sales guy on the line)

The two candidates I came up with were Moridon, which it almost was until someone suggested Flexo.

Flexo is the name of the light from the Pixar masthead.

The reason it says 'Welcome to Flexo' is because I wanted to differentiate between the old banner 'Welcome to the NEW Sennadar forums' for a quick ID-check during the migration.

Oh, and the Moridon name would really just be continuing the naming trend for my home computers/servers. Sarraya, Kumi, Jyslin, Shiika...
There are a few exceptions. The two exceptions being My windows home server (MONOLITH -- because of the case. Lian-Li A71B full-tower black case. http://www.productwiki.com/lian-li-pc-a71b/) and my still-kinda-new Lenovo which I havn't named yet.

I've been naming my computers after Classical, Renaissance, and Baroque composers for a long time (my NT4 Server was named Bach, and I've had Mozart, Berlioz, Beethoven, Schumann, Schubert, etc). My kids now have started having an influence - my oldest son named his computer "Moses_Hogan" after the composer/arranger of African-American spirutuals.
