Does your computer have a name?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

What's your computer's name? And no, I don't mean the model. What did you name it (if anything)? What do you think of naming computers? Some people name their cars or houses, so why not your gaming rig?

-The light at the end of the tunnel is the headlamp of an oncoming train.

-Celibacy is not hereditary.

-If everything seems to be going well you obviously have no idea what's going on.

-Never argue with a fool, people might not know the difference.

-A shortcut is the longest distance between two points.

-Everyone has a scheme for getting rich that will not work.

Spoiler

-Do things according to who you are, not who others are.

-You can't put a square peg in a round hole. If you're a square peg, make yourself a square hole.

-If somebody else will, why should you?

-If your life consists solely of doing the bidding of others, you have no life at all.

I just called mine 'Sia', and for no particular reason other than that I like the singer of the same name.

 

Giving my computer a name gives it an identity because I was the one who built it, it gives the PC that personal touch, just like anything else a person may name.

Charlotte. It used to be in a Rosewill Redbone case, and I just thought the name went with it at the time. And if it ain't broke, don't fix it (the case itself was broke though, dropped by TSA)

So do most Linux distros. And I think OSX as well.

 

And I believe those three default to user name followed by computer/mainboard model. Windows just does user name's PC.

I named the computer I'm currently building, Roisin Dearg (Row-sheen Dare-ugh; Irish Gaelic for, literally, Rose Red), only because of the build log. I never named my desktop computers before this one. I did name two of my notebooks Notebook 1 and Notebook 2 but only to make keeping track of them easier. I have always named my vehicles, though. My current vehicle, an F150 Screw is named Saoirse (Irish for freed or freedom: I named her after a horse in a series of books I read). I also named the cute little 4" combination square I got a year or two back Baby.

 

I don't care whether people name their computers (or anything else, for that matter) or not; it's a personbal choice if they do or not. I see nothing wrong with it. I do have a problem with narrow minded people who criticize other people for doing so or not doing so.

As long as anyone is oppressed, no one will be safe and free.

One has to be proactive, not reactive, to ensure the safety of one's data so backup your data! And RAID is NOT a backup!

My current machine is the Appleizer, because I used it when working at Apple and contributed some stuff to OS X Lion to Mavericks.  Some notable machines in my past:

PITA: A cheap 486 computer, first PC I ever built..  PITA stands for Pain In The Ass, because the computer simply never wanted to work correctly, always had some mundane problem that made it run like crap.  Oddly enough when windows 98 came out, it actually worked better than my newer 486 that replaced it.

Fungus: A Celeron 366 that I got shortly after my second 486.  It was called fungus because the machine was a dumpster dive.  It worked good though, and I used several video cards through it, a Voodoo3 3000, Rage 128 Pro (promptly going back to the Voodoo3, Geforce 2, then a Geforce 3.  That computer is when I started using Linux daily, so this dates it to ~2000.  I was using Mandrake 7 back then.

And lastly, TheConfused:  An IBM ThinkCenter Pentium 4 machine, that I was running OS X Leopard on for a while, out of curiosity.  I still have the machine, but it's now an OPNsense firewall.

Yeaaaah, no.

PC or Computer is what I call it.
I just don't get people who actually go out of their way to give a name to their computers.
