The Register about Ikkaku

TPM wrote a article about an Sun/Fujitsu server at the bottom end of the APL M-class product line: Fujitsu and Sun arm juttejutsu server with quad-core processor. I won´t comment on the details, but the explanation of the codename is … hmmm … interesting … especially when you know that you just have to type in “+ikkaku +sun” to get the official explanation ;). It has nothing to do with swords, at least not with ones made of steel:

Ikkaku is a Japanese name for "Narwhal", an Arctic cetacean/whale, about 20 feet long; the male has a single twisted pointed canine tooth or tusk projecting forward like a horn. The Japanese word literally mean "single horn".
