@Cat 's comment about Joey's computer name in Hackers has me curious.

What do you name your computers? Do you use themes? Are you proud of any, and if so, why?

@tomasino Marvel cosmic superheroes from my childhood.

At the university where I work it's Smurfs.

@satchmoz my current naming convention is notable Romans. It was originally Roman senators, but a I've hit on a few that didn't hold that position.

In college I used women's names that sounded really bitchy because computers hated me and made life difficult. Friggin Cassie!

@tomasino @Cat I almost always name them after demons, for reasons that should be obvious. My current machine is named Aculeus, the Latin word Jerome used for the thorn in Paul's side :)
