My Herd

To keep track of what I have up and running (and to keep tabs on each build) I have a running list of my systems. Every Mac is special and has a name. Laptops are named after starships, desktops after space stations, wifi hubs after stars, hard drives after planets, media after moons, handheld devices after ...handheld devices.
