What's your PC called?

At one place I worked the file server was Gondor, the backup was Mordor, my dev maching was Eriador and the other developer's machine was Rohan. Are you implying that this behaviour might not be considered... normal?

 

 

I've also known servers named after real ales, which I thought was an ace idea.

 

Anyway, my machines. At the moment I only have three. They are:

 

Main machine: Maverick

Laptop: Fireblade

Kids machine: Kids1

 

Yes, I couldn't be bothered to think of a name for the kids one. I did have a second machine to complement Maverick called Goose, but it died. I should have known that would happen...

I've had ones named after Simpsons characters - Milhouse, Flanders, Krusty, Sideshow Bob etc. Always took it very seriously when we bought a new server, sat down with the Simpson's bible picked a few names and then each took turns at discounting a name until we ended up arriving at one :)

 

Just bought a new server cluster at my current place - 3 of them and I'm pushing for 'Curly, Larry and Moe' :hihi: just hope they don't fight like they did in real life!

The place I'm working at the moment has servers named after characters in The Simpsons.

 

We drew the line at ApuNahasapeemapetilon but we are just configuring sideshowbob.

 

At home it's 'JoesDesktop', 'Laptop', 'Win95', 'homer' (my Linux box) and a couple of others that I can't remember because they rarely give me grief.... :)

I'd quite like to call my two Chuffnuts and Wazzock. But I'm not going to.

My two computers are Mycroft and Lazarus, and my phone is known (by the other two, not by me) as Ishtar.

 

These are all characters from Heinlein novels - two of them computers.
