Code named Coraniaid

The Coraniaid are a race of beings from Welsh mythology who cannot be injured because their hearing is so sharp that they can hear any sound that the wind carries, and can thus avoid danger.

NetAdmins have many a time been described as mythical beings so the ability to receive alerts from your network before it all goes wrong will probably help perpetuate the mysticism!
