Do you know when you sign into Groupwise (if anyone can remember that far back)...

…in the top right hand corner of the webpage (this is the WebAccess I'm talking about here) it has NOVELL written in red letters and then in light grey text it has another word which changes. The one at the minute when I just tried to sign in (again no luck) is 'Flapjack'. I love Groupwise just for that randomness. I think I also remember seeing 'Swordfish' but I can't remember if I've seen any others.

Does anyone have any idea what this means or is it just random? Come on you lovely computer-type people.

  1. This is the name of the WebAccess server your connected to – in total I think there are 12.

    Others include Invader, Daywalker, and my personal favourite Pratt.

  2. invader, swordfish, pratt, daywalker, nyssa, dieter, flick, vindicator, flapjack, dauntless, fortress, marauder, avenger
    Mostly WWII aircraft in keeping with the rest of the Groupwise server names, but four characters from the Blade films, as they were initially hosted on blade servers.

    There was a whitney, to go with pratt, but that’s long gone, also flick has been removed as someone said it looked rude.

    The text is light blue, and was nearly invisible before LCD monitors were in common use. I made the text.
