  • Names For Your Computers

    No, I don't mean %#@!%&! or #^*@$, I mean what you name them for network or OS identification. When I first had to do that, mine were "Mike-Desk" and "Mike-Laptop." My current crop is:

    MississippiJohn (Hurt), UncleDave (Macon), CharliePoole,
    and SooCow (a song by Bo Carter).

    What are your computers' names?

      There's "That Vista piece of crap"

      Then, "Antique Dell laptop supplied by work"

      Then I have, "The Dell Workstation that ended up costing me waaay too much when it was all said and done"

      And finally, there's "Mac".

          Is this what you type in as the owner when you install the OS? I think my audio computer is called "Blueberry Buddha". I never thought of this as the name of the computer, though.

            I don't know what the Mac side looks like. In Windows, the owner is one thing, and the network name is another. If I'm using one computer and want to get a file from another computer that's on the network, this is the name I use to get to the "Network Place" where the file is located.

                  Well, we run a pretty flat utility model here so we just go with purpose and then a serial number

                  hence all the computers in the house are

                  "Pornography Dispenser : N "

                    Mine have pretty mundane names, but now I'm thinking of renaming one "Mike" and another one "Rivers."

                      Well, these days I supposed I should appreciate all the honor and glory that comes my way. I'm certainly not going to die with the most toys.
