I worked for a startup back around 2001 that liked to name their servers
after various fruits.   When the Compaq Itanium box arrived, I was the
one that picked the hostname "durian" for it...

awesome smell of the fresh rye bread cancels out any burning rectifiers
or durian fruit by a long shot ;-)
