Does your computer or computers have a nickname, pet name, or just
something else you refer to it by? How did it get the name? This can be
funny sometimes, and interesting to see what people say.

My server's name is OTTO, named after the blowup doll on Airplane!
and my workstation is named Lester after Lester Burnham in American
Beauty.

-----

what's yours called/named?

That's pretty slick. I'll have to remember that when I get my laptop in two weeks. I think the Skynet one would work for that.

This computer is called Sam, the main computer is called Kelly. The laptop doesn't have a name yet, and neither does my brother's computer.

*looks at her feet* I name a lot of stuff. ... some things I don't consciencly name them, I just eventually realize I've been calling them something. Like my feet. I've been calling the left one Larry and the right one Method my entire life, only recently have I realized it. :?

This box is called Alison, an old girlfriend named it in joking that she was jealous of it (man that's embarassing, I'm not a social freak, honest), and my laptop has the equally pathetic name "Liberty", as it was bought for going away to university.

PS Calendae has the coolest names so far I vote!

Mainframe 5. "Mainframe", cause I wasn't in the mood to be creative when I named it, and "5" becuase I had to rewrite this thing 5 times before It installed the windows XP OS properly. Piece of %#!& OS.

Piece of Crap (it's an old compaq, slightly suped up). I've invested much more money into it than its worth. I spent more money on the soundcard than the entire box. It has the smallest modern (1990-Present) hardrive I've ever heard of. 4.0 GB!. About 3 formatted. I've got about half the space left. I still love it, even though its old. :D
