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"

smile

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

My computer is named Balthasar, my bro's computer is named Melchior, and my mom's computer is named Casper...They all run on 1 network.
Yeah I know, we're geeks :P




And seen Neon-Genesis Evangelion perhaps? Or am I the only one making that connection too....

Well, i at first made the connections to names of angels and devils in catholic mythos, but after that yes, the Neon Genesis thing did pop in my head, though if I was gonna name my 'puters after the series, it would either go Eva 00, 01, and 02, or shinji, rei and asuka. But thats me, ive been told im wierd

....i got nothing.

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.

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.

My bro named the computers, as he set them up, I just went along with it, and didn't complain ^.^' And agreed, Angelina Jolie was young then, and very purdy :O Some very cool stuff in that movie, makes me wish I was around for that time period -.-

Safe, I heard about that actually, my bro got in trouble at work (he runs the entire network for some television company or somesuch) because he made reference to the master and slave drives, and was told they had to be called primary and secondary drives instead -.-
