Hostnames

From Paritybit.ca Wiki

All of the hostnames which I use for my computers come from the mythology of the Greek Underworld. I have collected a list of names from the Wikipedia page on the Greek Underworld with some brief descriptions of what that particular name represents. Hostnames currently in use are marked with their current usage detailed to make them stand out.
