What do you call your computers?

Desktop1 = hinata-lodge (Reference to Love Hina anime)
Desktop2 = bebop (Reference to Cowboy Bebop anime)
Server = hinata-hotspring (Reference again to Love Hina anime)

I call my desktop (and only computer I really have) just "libernode" Smiling

There is one other computer in house, but that is for sisters and I don't know if they care to give it a name anyway.. maybe I should think of one. Laughing out loud

My box's name is raven, in Linux and also in Windows.
My server back in Germany is called Mastermind, since it's the big overseer on the network and also was a pretty nice achievement at the time I first installed it.

I once worked in a cool company where they named all their servers as chess pieces. You'd say, "Did you put that program on Rook?" They'd say, "No, it's on Bishop, today."

I used to have the Stooges + random names:

servers: curley (RH 7.x), larry (RH 7.x), moe (RH 7.x), shemp (Win 2k AS)
clients: krash (win98se), devel (win2k), liage (win98se)

Then went to planets for servers & moons for clients:

servers: mercury, venus, earth, mars, jupiter, saturn (all FC 2)
clients: io, eros, titan, pandora (all Win2k)

Now I have alphabet for servers and still moons for clients:

servers: a (FC 4), b (FC 4), c (FC 4), d (FC 5), e (Centos 4)
clients: io (win2k), pandora (FC 5), eros (win2k), titan (win2k)

The desktops are named (in dutch) after their locations in the house. The name of my laptop is "garden", not because of it's possible location, but short for "short piece of music garden" which is a literal (babelfish) translation from japanese of something I found on an obscure japanese website. (No, not obscure japanese in THAT way Laughing ) If I keep that naming scheme, my next computer should be named "sister" from "older sister incident".

Laptop = Acer Desktop =

Laptop = Acer
Desktop = Blackbox

I named the laptop obviously cause it's an acer, but the desktop is named blackbox cause I had this cool background that had blackbox across it, and it gave me the idea to make everything dark and black, for those late nights when bright lights hurt. Smiling
