    The junk one is called HAL (from 2001) and the modestly allright laptop is Hannibal.

    Ah, so I guess the sister of 'Pete the semi-robotic platapus' doesn't get yer noodle going, eh bebelina? Well I guess we all have our opinions....

    Tyler, we all feel dirty sometimes. I hate to say this but taking a cold shower helps (tee hee hee)

    Frank & Howard

    My ruby-red iMac DV is named Frank, because he has red lips and a beauty mark. (Get really high and get to know your iMac ... you'll see it.) His sidekick, Howard, is the external drive.

    Frank for Tim Curry as Frank 'N' Furter in Rocky Horror, and Howard for H.P. Lovecraft.

    thanx,
    Tiassa

    Damn, you know it never occured to me to name my PC. However, if asked how I refer to it, its either "My Machine" or "Useless f**k" depending on how it's responding to me

    I dunno, I just got a new machine and it's not presented enough quirks to beg a name yet.

    My old machine started out as "Slick", back when it's 450MHz processor was top of the line and I was so impressed by my 16 meg video card and 96 megs of ram. (Machine before that was a whopping 25 MHz with 4 meg ram). Later he became known as "Max" as his hard drive became fuller and fuller and the games I was playing became too much for it to handle.

    I just unplugged Max last week and put a shiny new Dell in his place. So far I've used the inane name "Delly-O" (said in a 50's gangster voice like "daddy-o"), but that's just gonna have to change. Far too stupid. And I'm gonna be networking it, so I better think of a good name soon...

    Hubby has two computers he runs for his techno music. Pete, and RePete.

    Not the most original names ever, but sure beats "Delly-O"... :bugeye:

    Anybody wanna help me name my Dell? It's definitely a guy. (says me. All my machines are male.) He's pretty quick, and has a lovely grey and black case on him. Much prettier then my beige old Max...

    I'm thinking a barbarian name might be good...something nice and violent sounding. (It does seem to crunch numbers quite readily...)

    but my opinion is tht giving your computer a name is a very personal thing and it should be done only by yourself

    True enough...but the stuff you post just might give me a great idea, or remind me of something else I've heard that would work. My view of such things is that it will get the name that is appropriate, *how* it gets the name is just details.

    ~Cupric...believer in Fate

    (And, Thor was on my list of possibilities and crossed off already before you posted it. See how that works? *laughs* Thor is an excellent name, but the God is too linked to lightning...lightning and PC's don't mix.)

    Mine is called Sir Eric of Stop-A-Lot.
    I made him a monitor frame so everyone knows his correct name and doesnt just call him 'the computer'.
    He has a face, which is the background on my desktop. And yes, I talk to him.
    He even has his own folder on the hard drive where he keeps his 'things'...
