Cnet used a difficult host-naming convention; instead of assigning logical machine names that last forever, they used complex codes intended to help diagnose rack location. the codes embedded both colo vendor and an airport code for the device, so any facility move required machines to be completely re-named, and software relying on hostnames to be rewritten. i think this fan blowing air into the colo was labeled to poke fun at this less-than-ideal naming convention. we did our best to build without relying on anything that returned the unix hostname but still got screwed from time to time.
