Configuring a uunet node
Negotiating a connection with another uunet node

(Back in the mid-1980s when I wanted to connect IBM Research connect to uunet we started with friends at DEC, since their node was pretty central.  Their management intervened and told us that we could connect through decvax if we called our machine 'ibm-vax' ... I rejected that.  We ended up connecting through another research lab nearby.)

(Some time ago I played a MMORPG where you got to name your characters.  I named one IHNP4.)
