    Re: So what do you name your stuff?

    I am not a creative person I guess.
    I name my computers from the brands: v570 for the laptop, delltower for the desktop.
    It's fairly simple and easy to remember.

    At work, the situation is different, we use a naming convention like this:
    Location-System-Subsystem-Type-SequentialNumber

    The planet naming convention looks great for my home network. I might look into that

    My partitions and so forth have highly boring names such as "data", "Precise", "movies", "pics" and so on.

    I do have a bluetooth connection called "trojan territory" and my wireless SSID is called "Virus_den". Whether it makes anyone think twice about trying to connect, I have no idea...
    Please, people, remember to BACKUP before you install that new system. Same if you're upgrading.

    I use Halo the video game characters as my naming scheme.

    Cortana -- Server
    Arbiter -- Desktop
    Didact -- Netbook
    Gravemind -- Laptop

    I used Greek Gods at work to name my servers at one point. Just find a series or something that sounds good to you and run with it. As long as you are happy with the names that is all that matters.

    my external media is named "Keepers" so I don't lose it
    I have 3 brain cells left, and two of them have restraining orders.

    I once had a laptop named Larry, but now I have a high school issued Macbook who has many obscene names.

    Me too:

    T43
    T400
    X220

    and at the CLI:

    @T43, etc.
