So now I need a name for it. A little background on my current computer names:
- Pandora: my main PC, runs FreeBSD. Named in its original incarnation eons ago after the Aerosmith song and boxed set, Pandora's Box.
- Doughnut: my current (and soon to be old) Mac. When I got it in '96, I lived with Tom and we had a little apartment network going on there. His PC at the time was named Peanut, so we decided to name all the machines with "nut" names. Our internal domain name was inter.nut (I still use that today on my internal home network). We even renamed existing machines: his SGI "Death" got the alias "Cashew" and I'm almost certain that Pandora got a nutty alias too, but I can't remember. Anyway, when I bought the Mac, I needed a new nut name. Doughnut seemed just about perfect.
- Liquid: built from parts of Pandoras past (say that fast 10 times in a row), this was my gateway/firewall machine for awhile. Named after a very cool Joe Satriani song.
- Ice9: technically not mine, it's my SGI at work. Also named after a cool Joe Satriani song.
What do you name your machines, and why?
