Posted:Ive seen a few people today saying they have named their computer.

and I also remember on the wierdness test, that "have your ever given your computer a name?" was one of the questions.

Well I have.

Firstly, she was named Angelcake.
I decided to name it after I was having serious problems with it and out of despair and desperation, thought she mihgt sort herself out if I named her and talked to her.

She didnt.

So I replaced whatever I think was wrong and called her Angelcake Mk.II

Then when I upgraded my motherboard, it wasnt really Anglecake Mk.II anymore, so I had to come up with a new name.

She is now called "Kitty Galore"

Whats the name of your computer, except for "stupid dumb piece of crap"?

But thats me, ive been told im wierd

Posted:I named mine something very rude and un-PC, that I won't repeat here.

I think it resents its name and wants to punish me for it every day. It's very good at it.

Posted:Actually yes, it was after Evangelion, which they used alot of cathlotic mystism names and such from.
Evangelion is my favorite anime of all time ^.^' You should see my walls wink Posters and Wall Scrolls everywhere!
And Bobo, you are quite possibly the coolest person EVER! You like orange, which is very cool on it's own, but you have dreads, and hopefully, are a fan of NGE! Too cool!

And Fine Rabid Dog, have you seen a movie called Hackers? biggrin Very cool movie, with many hippies in it.
