We use a site code + the userid i.e. my primay computer would be named
SB-BOBR because I am at location SB. If I were at BL it would be BL-BOBR.
(My userid is BOBR from BOb BRown)

This way computers are named based on where they are and who uses them.

In our factory, where many people use them they are named based on the
location, i.e. SB-C220 would denote a grid location on our factory floor.
Thus these PC's are named for where they are.
