    Main computer: "pacifica" after the main feature I was looking for in a PC when I bought it (virtualization extentions). Any OS I install on this gets called that.

    I used to use nicknames based on their OS; variations on "Tux" for Linux, "beasty" for NetBSD or FreeBSD, "puffy" for OpenBSD and "belle" for OpenSolaris; I still use those for virtual machines.

    My computer's name would be meaningless to you, but I do call my external storage devices thusly:

    MORBIUS - 350Gb FAT32 external hard drive
    ALTAIRA - 8Gb FAT32 USB stick with a Hardy ISO on it.
    OSTROW - 500Mb FAT32 external hard drive - recently acquired. Perhaps I should have called it ROBBIE - maybe next time.

    I call them stingy (a *really* cheap tower, local database server), sire (my personal server proxy - controls everything that it being sent or received from the internet) and junior (sire's dependant - the desktop )

    Re: what do you call your pc (domain or otherwise)?

    I have a very non-creative naming scheme. I name the computer after the code name of the processor inside. My desktop is named Manchester (socket 939 Athlon 64 X2 4200+), my laptop is named Merom (Core 2 Duo U7500), my girlfriend's Dell Latitude D531 is called Sherman (65 nm Mobile Sempron 3600+) and the old crappy laptop that is barely hanging in there as a MythTV frontend is called Northwood (Mobile Pentium 4-M.)

    My domain is TUX-NET as that's the default workgroup name for Samba. It is pretty much true as there is only one non-Linux computer on the network- my girlfriend's laptop runs Vista. I know, I know. It would probably be easier to migrate her than others as she used to use all MS stuff on her old laptop (Office, IE, Windows Messenger, etc.) but I fixed her up with an OSS application stack on her new machine: OpenOffice.org, Thunderbird, Firefox, Pidgin, and the GIMP. She is doing just fine on that setup. I have an open offer out there to help her demo or install Linux if she ever is curious or runs into a big PITA with Vista.
    Desktop: X2 4200+, abit KN8 SLi, 4 GB DDR-400, ATi HD 3850, 1324 GB of HDDs, Dell SP2309W and 2001FP

    HTPC: Duron 1600, ASUS A7N8X-E, 1 GB DDR-400, 600 GB of HDDs, PCI GF6200
