Ok, this is a bit of an odd question to ask, but I guess I'll go and ask it anyway.

Does your computer have a name ?

Vote in the poll, and post a reply if you feel the need to with your computer's name (if it has one).

Only one of my computers out of my countless others has a name. I haven't found very many good names for all my computers yet. Very Happy

This one (the only one with a name) is named Bianca. Why I chose that name ? I really liked it. Very Happy

This should be interesting.

hm, yes... sort of. it's more of an identifier. my current pc is called moonglade, the notebook is ashenvale (both places in the warcraft universe).

for years the only contant of my PC was the name avalon. while i replaced the CPU,mainboard, every single pcicard, the tower itself, the harddrives and even the monitor the name stayed avalon.

We had our computers named after garden plants for a long time, but now mine's called Sparky. I don't know why I went with it, but regardless of the OS (or how many of them) on the machine, its been Sparky for the last 3 years.

My family has five computers. Because they are networked (or are becoming so) they
each have a name:

Rome (Father's and the main one)
Lady (my mothers)
Golden (sister's)
Pippin (mine)
Crab (brother's)

We still need one more, for other sister.

My machine is called "Night-Crawler".

pretty impressive, huh ?
But I call it that because I was listening to the song called Night crawler by Judas Priest when the computer crashed the last time. (about a year and a half back)
It seems to relate well to that name.
It hasn't crashed since. Very Happy

Apart from that, back in the days when I had a P1 system, me and my friends had decided upon "Captain-Crash".

lol, sadly enough, my computer did have a name. I labeled it "HossGODcomp" and that's what all of my friends referred to it as, seeing how it had the most top of the line equiptment for it's day, well, for a home user atleast. Razz
Then my christian friends from Kittaning found out about this and wern't too thrilled, so I changed it's name to "Hoss1337comp". Razz It's not the greatest comp anymore, but I still like it, does everything I need it to, plus some. Razz

I thought it is quite unusual to have one's computer to have a name!! Shocked
corey
They all get one, but who likes "localhost" or "WXJSGDGW-QQEWRE"? May as well give it one you can recognize Smile
charliehk
Well, perhaps the reason I was surprised is that I never asked this question! Perhaps 85% of the computers in the world really have a name... well it's still hard for me to believe.

Also, some of them are male and some are female!! Shocked

All of my computers are female. Normally machines are female (like ships) because of their beauty. My sister's old computer was a male since it didn't work for her all that well. Razz

Short Answer: Amanda

Long, boring answer:

Computers come to be, because humans impart information and coding to create their existance. Not unlike the result of humans imparting DNA and specific coding material (nucleic acids) to create the existance of an embryonic child. Computers keep us company through various interactive content as do infants through entertaining antics. Computers also serve us, just as children do when they wash dishes or work in the fields as farm helpers. Lastly, but not conclusively, computers also provide us with a medium for establishing a sense of community (e.g., FriHost Community)-- much like children broaden our sphere of community by including their friends to their immediate circle of family and local community.

What makes up the totality of being human and what defines us as humans is the manner in which we interrelate and connect to our environment and the world around us (virtual or local). We create it, we are defined by it, we are "it."

Since 1986 (the days when you actually booted your XT or AT with a 5 1/4" floppy), I have always named my computer, Amanda -- after my daughter.

Happy New Year,

Mark

Calling your computer a descriptive name like "laptop" or "office computer" isn't a problem. Likewise, calling it by some random identifier (because you have to) like "HP74839" is ok.

Actually naming your computer as though it was a child or friend...

Eh?

... you need to get out more!!!

I got my laptop free with my college tuition, but within the first 3 months of owning it, I was at the Help Desk at least every other day, because it was broken. When I FINALLY got it fixed, I decided to name it Dalton out of my excitement. Very Happy

This name your computer thread has made trying to find an original computername for my computer, with little succes so far.

I want a non stolen cool name. :(
DRock
Can't say my machine has a name, but I do refer to it as a she. My girlfriend got freaked out the first time she heard me personalize it. It was about to crash, and there was some work on it that needed to be saved (hours worth) so, as it was beginning to restart, I said "come on girl, just give me a few more seconds".

It was a riot, but I felt interogated.
InjunMick

Eh no, I haven't thought to put a name for my laptop, the only "endearment" word is "tatil" the last part of "portátil" (portable in spanish).
Jean-Clod
Well.. it may sound strange, or amazing, but I simply give letters as nouns for each of my PCs:
- The E for my netbook (E for eeePC)
- The A for my laptop (A for Acer.. ok that one is silly Rolling Eyes )
- The D for the desktop (I assume you understood this one)

(And "the One" for my smartphone, but that's offtopic Laughing )
william
My computers are named by their model (if a laptop) or by something descriptive. That's just how they appear on the network. Occasionally though, I will give it a specific name. Like this one computer over here, it's named Deep Thought. Laughing
ForceRun
My last 3 computers have all been named: Bob, it is simple and fast to remember.
chartcentral
Yes, my computer has a name. It's a combination of the previous names of the 2 PCs that got merged after both had defective parts and became useless. The good parts were united to form a working system again! Smile
