That’s what I’ve been calliing my little hovel here in the back of the building. Because it’s this windowless room with one door. 🙂

Since last week, I’ve now built three server, all FreeBSD (much to the local sysadmin’s dismay, who favors Linux above all), and all with separate services:

semper (aka noc1-hq) runs monitoring only.
fidelis (aka noc2-hq) runs the wiki and mysql 5.
paratus (aka noc3-hq) runs the portal and the ticketing system.

Semper Fidelis Paratus is Latin for “always faithful and ready.”

Everyone here thinks I’m either an ex-marine or an ex-coast guard member. I just wanted to name my servers something cool and invoke a sense of always being ready and faithful. 🙂

I’ve been pulling these long days, though. Thankfully, with ‘s help, I’ve been able to build out three snazzy machines and they’ll be equal to the task. I hope I didn’t just set them up for failure with the names, because that would suck serious ass.
