I have never seen that before. That's awesome. Thanks for that.
I do have one thing they missed: I once named a machine "Null". Screwed up the whole network.
I find it interesting that the string representation of "Null" is actually used for some networking purposes. Apparently it is also used as a special case in databases as well apparently as a last name of "Null" messes up all sorts of systems.
