I named my original computer Colossus after the one in The Forbin Project that took over the world. As my own plans for world domination are running somewhat behind schedule, the new one has gone unnamed.

I call mine Raven, the reason because ravens are usually consider as birds of darksness, I love heros that always are in darksness like Batman, Crow, and so on..... :lol:

Harddrives really reached over 1 gig mostly after '95 or so. 4 GB was high in this time period. And the modern hard drive in the early 90's would not be over 100 MB. So 4 GB is not small unless you're talking about the later 90's.

My w95 desktop comp has a 800MB HD, my w95 laptop is 400 MB.
...then i got the 40 desktop gig HP in 2000, and my 80gig lappy this year.

I could fit just about anything on my 800MB HD back in the day, I couldn't imagine having a whole 4 gigs...

My eMac is called "Doorstop" (I considered Boat Anchor, but decided to keep to the one word name paradigm)

My WinXP Laptop is called "Carpathia" (after a band I played bass in at WSU... which was named after the ship that rescued the Titanic survivors (don't ask, I wasn't an original member)... I figured mobile... ship.... Also that was the name of an old Linux machine I used to have at a previous job, which is where my username comes from Car - Nix)

My Fedora system is called "Ishmael" because it's a crappy old system that is clinging to life but is probably about to die anyway (the moby dick reference). Actually, it's named that because I'm a Melville fan, but also because I find the biblical significance of that name interesting.

My Win2000 system is called Xin, which is, oh-so-inventively, the last four digits of Carnix backwards...

Oh, I just remembered. Once I get around to setting up a real network at home (I can't afford the equipment just now... what with the new baby and all), I'm going to use Xin as the domain name and change the win2k system to something else. Haven't decided yet what, maybe Carter.

I've thought about chaging my whole scheme to US Presidents:

Clinton (My laptop. Sleek, fast, powerful and mobile. Lots of RAM and a bunch of ports and it likes using all of them.)

W (eMac - hunk of burning crap, I'd like to smash it but it seems to be serving some diabolical purpose)

Carter (Win2k - maybe not the greatest system now, but later, when it's not used as the main computer for the family, everyone will realize what a great system it really is. Maybe it will get a nobel prize too!)

FDR (Fedora - Old. Sick.. it has a good heart and it makes good things happen)

Clarence is a little scary about this computer...He calls it his "baby" even though I work on it more after the library closes.

I call my computer by many names, usually startind with "you" and ending with a slew of four letter words. We're not too tight.

I call my computer... nothing.
