What's in a name? Quite a lot actually

Defibrillator training 2019 05 16

We give our computers names, and have recently added a nice solid 17" Laptop to our assets. Our Systems Administrator then gained approval for the name.

"Maitai translates variously as: perfectly, steel, wholesome, painstakingly.
Mahitahi or Maitai -  The Nelson Valley
metal, iron, steel, cutlery, foreign, good, beautiful, agreeable.

Representing the flow of the Nelson Maitai river through our City, akin to data flow, and following the convention of naming SeniorNet Nelson devices with both Maori and local Nelson locality names the new HP laptop has been named Maitai."

Thank you to Trevor Hunter for the research.
