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"?

Posted:Mine's called Lazarus. Largely due to processor issues when my friend was helping me build it.

Most of the time it's called something rude though, especially since it's running Millenium as for some bizarre reason the motherboard wont run 2000 and we didn't have a copy of anything else at the time. I REALLY hate Millenium!
