    A while back one Sunday morning I was driving down the street near my home when suddenly something I saw made me screech to a halt. Next to a battered metal garbage can, (I wonder what you do with a garbage can when you want to get rid of it. Hmm...) a shovel with a broken handle and a railroad tie sat a little discarded Compaq Presario which bore a striking resemblance to R2D2 from the front. I originally intended to scavenge parts, but It was just so cute that I couldn't bear to hack it to pieces. It will run any OS of the roughly 1/2 dozen I tried but not windows. Hmm..

    Anyway, back to the intended subject. I considered all of the things I knew about this computer when I chose the name. It looks like R2D2. It is a Compaq. It's not satisfied to do the same thing as the masses. And most importantly, it's from the streets. No, I don't have too much time on my hands, I just often enjoy pondering silly things.

    The perfect name for this Computer is "Artupaq".

    Anyone else have a good computer name?

    I'm not too creative, so I just pick names out of the air.:-)

    My pc are: Picard, Locutus, Buffy, Angel, and Rommi (which I think I spelled it wromg but she is the avatar for Andromeda).

    See A theme?

    Well when I needed a theme for the LAN at my house, I chose to call it Olympus. All of the computer names are mythological figures. For example the computer that I am on now is Zeus.

    My home computers are named after the person that uses them. Pretty boring, but it works.

    One PC, my game machine, is "PLAY" on the network. This one, with all my work applications is "WORK". My wife's laptop is "WORRY", since she does that alot. Our rarely used 4th PC on the home network is "REST". It's in the bedroom.

    My Visor Platinum is "Marilyn" (also a platinum...). My wife's solo is "Napolean" (also a Solo).

    I'm building a PC in a black case with all black accessories. I'm grooming it to move into the home theater. The only color on it is a red square center front on the case where a company logo usually goes. I call him "Moscow" (also has a red square) at the moment. Once in the home theater I might call him "Cine-man".

    Yes, I've got too much free time.

    I guess you always know "Who's your daddy."

    I named my Mac G4's primary hard disk "Gee Whiz" and am still trying to concoct something more imaginitive.
    The secondary drive is "Heinz" because it's 57 GB after formatting.
    My old Performa Mac was "Performacon" after a toy robot.
    My Amiga was "The Beast." I had to do battle with it on a daily basis.
    The Ataris didn't get names (just "the 800," "the 1200," etc); the first family PC was Franklin (name of the maker).
    My car is "The Great Heap" (both descriptive and a Star Wars reference).

    Mine is GalleysBeBox, 'cause I use BeOS.
    Be Inc. used to make their own PC's which was called a BeBox. Below is an image of the last model they made. The two LED's on the front case show the CPU usage of each of the dual processors.

    I named my edge Sancho:

    1) It follows me everywhere I go
    2) It records my exploits
    3) It looks on with detached, ironic bemusement as I often make a fool of myself

    Perfect, no?

    Also, nobody's figured out why I named my car Ahura (from a previous thread.) It's because of the make, and because of my favorite Holy Text

    At work, I named our domain Sol (not S.O.L., but Sol as in Solar), and our servers:
    -Mercury
    -Venus
    -Earth
    -Mars
    -Asteroidbelt
    -Jupiter
    -Saturn
    -Transneptunian

    With Neptune, Uranus, Pluto and Kupierbelt (sp?) soon to come. When I run out, I'll start hitting moons and/or comets. It really shouldn't be a problem as we have too darn many servers anyway.

    Yeah, it's boring but you asked...

    At work I've got Oblina, The Gromble, Ickis, and Krumm. I haven't named it at home, and my visor is ... well, my visor.

    You know, I always wondered if AAAHH was the sound of a frightful scream or the sound one makes as they settle into a warm bubble bath.

    The names usually come from mythology or suggested by the 'puters form factor.
    When I get a little money I buy books; if any is left, I buy food and clothes.
