why this machine is called brittanic

..raw:: html

<html><body><p>It all started when I bought a second hand Compaq P120 and inserted two el cheapo NICs because I intended it to be my Internet gateway. For some reason if there was some load from my workstation to the internet the gateway had a kernel panic. So I called it titanic (no too mention the fact that I have a list from a <a href=";start=20&amp;hl=nl&amp;lr=&amp;ie=UTF-8&amp;group=alt.sysadmin.recovery&amp;scoring=d&amp;;rnum=24">newsgroup</a> I like to read, in which it featured quite prominently).

As I said in an <a href="">earlier article</a> in this blog, titanic had a harddisk failure. I had another system available to take over from titanic, because I was having some performance and harddisk space problems with it. This machine is called <a href="">brittanic</a> and

it is (of course) running Linux. It is also the web, mail and shell server. <a target="_top" href="">Olympic</a> is my Windows 2000 workstation, which I need for some Windows development things I still do.

As a replacement for brittanic, I bought a second hand IBM PC, which is called <a href="">lusitania</a>.</p></body></html>
