geminianeyes: Cute sisters from PW as kids (Default)
[personal profile] geminianeyes
Was talking to [personal profile] nyarlathotep and this came up. Have updated the list recently, cause I lost Enma at the company's team-building trip, and here's what I have so far:

Main comp: Kuro (his elder sister was Verita, henceforth deceased)
Laptop: Shiki (formerly Mizi)
Thumbdrives: Jemima (2 gig), Cruizy (1 gig)
Music Player: Mort, short for Morpheus (Sansa Clip+)*
Former External: Tamako
Extra Harddisk: Kuro-Pi
NDS: Sachiko
Phone: Mizuiro
Old Players: Razko (now defunct), Enma (stolen)

What have YOU named your devices?

* Just realised that I name my MP3 players after things that have ties to Death/Sleep. @@ Enma = Jigoku Shuojo. Mort = Morpheus, also Mort aka Death's Apprentice in Discworld.

For a long time I thought I was the only one who did this. XD Sort of a "if my gadget is expensive it gets a damn name!" sort of thing.

Computer: Valkyrie. (Previously: Wolverine. Same case, mostly same hardware, but mostly different harddrives. I tend to rename the computer after huge data wipes/crashes/Windows installations.)
Harddrives/partitions: Amethyst, Sapphire, Onyx, Ruby, Topaz, Elements (external), previous harddrives/partitions called Windhoos, Datastorm, Saferain
Laptop: Suzaku
Home LAN network: Tiphares
USB stick: Momo (from Kimi wa Petto XD)
Music Player: Ichigo (it's a red iPod. Strawberries or Bleach?)
Keyboard: Nodame (because I <3 Nodame Cantabile, even though I don't have her piano talent at all, I just have her fail at music-reading and I like improv)

I also have devices called Trigger, King, Usagi and Bling-bling. I'll leave it up to you guess what they are. >_>

Yup, it's a WD drive! Most of my drives are. I had some bad Maxtor experiences and then became a big WD fan. Right now I have Elements (500 GB external), 1 TB Caviar Black and 320 GB Caviar Blue. And my brother's old 320 GB Maxtor. You can never have enough HD space. XD

... Nope. those are not my thumbdrives. >_>; In this case, 'USB stick' is what I call thumbdrives. I guess that term isn't used in the Netherlands much.

YAY! I am so glad you asked! I have so much fun just KNOWING my electronics all have names.

Laptop: Rufus (after the incomparable Rufus Wainwright)
250 GB external drive: Tardis (because it's my Mac OSX Time Machine back-up drive!)
500 GB external drive: Legolas (it's LaCie's white Brick, how could I not?)
4 GB thumb drive: Microbius (*I* think it's hilarious)
iPod: the MayPod (I got it in May! It's not very creative, but I can't change it)
AirPort wireless network: Erised (HP mirror of desire thing; I wanted something original and geeky without being immediately understandable to anyone looking for wifi)
Previous computers: Constance and Clementine

I don't always name my computerish devices, but I have topaz (my first laptop) and onyx (my second, a netbook). My desktop would have a gemstone name too if it hadn't been named in the shop and left me too lazy to rename it.

My naming scheme is languages, and the first letter of a device makes the first letter of its name.

iMac: iquito
iPod: izora
iPhone: ixcatec
eeePC: epie
USB drive: uhami

I don't remember what I've called older things...
