Thread: Do you give your PC a name ?

  1. #1
    Hi Guys

    I have been into PCs since the mid 80's.

    My brother always named his PC Eric (something to do with his budgie and Monty Python). I being a little older and more mature (?!), never did so.

    But over the last few years my live-in partner and I have obtained a few more PC's. So instead of saying "hey Dear (I always call her that) I'm going to copy some files from the PC in the lounge to the one in the shed. I came up with the idea of naming them.

    She is pretty good with that sort of thing, so as the one in the lounge was an old beige case and the one in the shed (mine) was a black case, she came up with the idea of calling them Ivory and Ebony. (After the McCartney/Wonder song).

    I liked that and we have been able to talk about Ebony and Ivory over the last few years.

    I recently built a new PC (our third one) and in keeping with our naming system I thought I better get a different colour case, so I bought a Thermaltake Aguilla case in Silver. (It loooks neat but has a few design faults).

    So I came up with the name for it of Eldorado which struck me as being good for silver - eg the Spanish were always looking for silver and gold in the land of Eldorado.

    So now we have 3 PC's

    Ivory
    Ebony
    Eldorado.

    Do you name your PC's ? and If so tell us your names, it could be fun ! (Piece of Shit is not allowed !)

    Regards

    I called my first computer Bob. I know. Very creative.

    Scared to admit: I use to hug him before I went on an extended trip. Am I a loser? :/

    I haven't named my PCs, well except for HOMEPC and WORKPC, but on my work PC I have named my drives for some reason.

    A: Drive - Mercury
    C: Drive - Andromeda
    E: Drive - Achilles
    F: Drive - Pegasus

    Don't ask me why
