Bondi iMac named (drumroll) Bondi. HD is Foghorn, with an icon of Foghorn Leghorn. External HD named, appropriately enough, Dizzy, complete with suitable icon.

You ever have a time where you THOUGHT you posted but you didn't?

Anyway, my computer is unnamed, right now, I can't think of a name to give it, lol.

Valarauko, which isn't a very fitting name for a 12.1 inch iBook, but it's my only computer right now, and I like the way it sounds. I think the best I ever heard was the name of a firewall maintained by a friend of mine: Fumitsubushu. Not sure if I'm spelling it right, but it's a Japanese word that means 'to stomp on and squash into the ground'.

Not exactly original:

iMac 466 (was 233): Bondi
Powerbook G3/400 (Firewire): Pismo
PowerMac 8100/100 (now G3/266): Flagship
PowerMac 7100/80: Sagan
PowerMac 5500/225: Phoenix
Performa 6290/100: POS (Piece of Sht)

All except Bondi are the old "codenames" for the machines. Bondi, for those really new to the Mac scene, is the color of the first iMacs (Revs A & B).

The Ti: Ahab
The OSX server: Pequod, Essex.
The Newton: Pip
The iBook: Mr. Stubbs
The Beige G3: Tashtego, Lifeboat.
The iPod: Queequeg


The theme emerges.
I don't bother to name my test boxes because they get reformatted so much.

Cube: Pandemonium
iBook: Ysgard
Airport Network: The_Great_Way
Server Cluster: Bytopia (pun intended)
AS/400: Mechanicus

My stolen TiBook was Celestia

When I found out my nickname was being used by TSR in a D&D supplement/setting (Planescape), I purchased the book, and these are either Planes of existence or a way to get around to all of them.

The Server cluster is six G4/500s with OS X 10.2 Server and a third party clustering software setup. Very cool. The AS/400 is an old unit that was going to be discarded by some short-sighted manager back in 1997, and I kept it just to learn RPG. Never really did anything with the RPG, but I still have the thing as a server for my Internet connection. Overkill, but it works.

The OS X partition is named, unimaginatively, "OS X". The other partitions are "Elwood Jr." (my G3 was named Elwood) and "Jake". My 40 GB firewire hard drive is named "Dubya". I used my tax check last year to buy it.

Yes, that's him. My mom took a picture of him once (I guess while he was just finishing licking his chops?) and he looked like a freakin' pirate. Funniest damn picture I've ever seen! I don't think I've laughed harder or longer at any point in my life. Need to rescan it, I lost the highres pic. This is from my bro's email sig. It normally captions,"Mr. Spuds says,'Don't do drugs!'"

My Pismo, named Xavier, has the very vain HD name of Xavier.

My blue G3, named Crawdad, has two hard drives, named Astacidae and Cambaridae, which are the two northern-hemisphere families of freshwater crayfishes in the order Astacidea.

My iBook's name is my phone number. That way, it shows up in the Login screen at startup in case my iBook is lost or stolen. I'm too lazy to make a custom login screen, so I just did that.

My HD is called "AAAAHH!!" and the icon is Homer Simpson screaming.
