    I don't really call my computer anything, I sometimes refer to it as "the VAIO"............But thats probably because It's a Sony Vaio Laptop unless..........

    This thread convinced me to think of more imaginative names for my current desktop and laptop. Say hello to seraphim and cherubim!

    This thread convinced me people think too much of their computers. I'm going to stick with the utility of xubuntu-box over some unique name I just made up.

    Since adopting linux, mine's always been called BENWAY after the doctor from 'Naked Lunch':
    Benway is a manipulator and coordinator of symbol systems, an expert on all phases of interrogation, brainwashing and control. I have not seen Benway since his precipitate departure from Annexia where his assignment had been T.D. - Total Demoralization. Benway's first act was to abolish concentration camps, mass arrest, and except under certain limited and special ciurcumstances, the use of torture.

    "I deplore brutality," he said. "It's not efficient. On the other hand, prolonged mistreatment, short of physical violence, gives rise, when skilfully applied, to anxiety and a feeling of special guilt. A few rules or rather guiding principles are to be kept in mind. The subject must not realize that the mistreatment is a deliberate attack of an antihuman enemy on his personal identity. He must be made to feel that he deserves any treatment he receives because there is something (never specified) horribly wrong with him. The naked need of the control addicts must be decently covered by an arbitrary and intricate bureaucracy so that the subject cannot contact his enemy direct.

    With the building of my first PC, I have started in the tradition of naming all of my PCs after the Mariner series of space probes. This one is Mariner, the next one will be MarinerII, then MarinerIII, etcetera. I chose these probes because, as far as I know, Mariner IV was the first space probe to reach Mars intact and I find Mars fascinating.
