    Interesting thoughts on naming computers

    yesterday one of the coolest Jolug.org members Zu3bi started new thread asking weird question, actually it was 2.00 AM Jordan time, and I was so damn sleeply, so I didn't pay attention, and I said, ah what he's thinking of ....
    Zu3bi Question
    We usually refer to a computer as a 'it' because it is a thing... but at times a person can really get emotional with a computer ( not sexually ofcourse), therefore would you refer to a computer as a he or a she ? and why ?

    but then at morning , well your morning but mine (12:00 pm) Khames Siksik replied with his thoughts

    Khames Thoughts on naming computers

    Well, this is an interesting thought, My machine(s) is a HE and a SHE depending on the situation, when my code doesn't run as expected, i prefer to fight with a big strong man so it is a HE and i can call him all the known/unknown bad words in the world and i may slap him on the face (side of the monitor), bunch him on the stomach(floppy drive), or even kick his ass (the ethernet card), When it works fine and gives me (this is a restricted condition as in if-and-only-if) what i wanted and expected it becomes a SHE and the relationship between us becomes so *HOT*. (I will leave this for your imagination) Regards,

    Its worthy to give it a while and think about it so here is my thoughts

    Jad thoughts

    for me I deal with the situation depending on the Operating system i'm running,
    if its windows so i'm dealing with my old lazy wife who want everything to be done in her style which is UGLY, so restricted, and buggy
    while when I'm dealing with linux, my imagination goes to a young women that understand the life correctly, she know how things should work, and she can offer all of her time to get the job done

    What about yours?

    Re: Interesting thoughts on naming computers

    I always name my computers after something in the X-Files, my current desktop is "Mulder", I retired the laptop which was "Majestic-12". If as suspected my next machine will be a Mac Mini, that will become "Scully" since it's damn sexy.

    So I think my computers are really gender neutral, I do sweet talk them sometimes though - mostly when I really want it to turn on. (man that sounded dirty)
