With 76 pages i'm not sure if i've answered before so just in case:

My forum name was taken from the name I gave to my computer. That in turn was taken from The Great Ennead of nine Heliopolitan Gods Atum, Shu, Tefnut, Geb, Nut, Osiris, Isis, Set, and Nephthys. http://www.touregypt.net/featurestories/heliopolis.htm
Nine partitions split between my drives and I couldn't think of a better way to remember them.

The server is named Frigg (after the name of a Viking godess, more or less the same than Freja or Frei), the orthers are named Mithril (after a cloth's stuff which Frodon wears in The Lord of the Rings), Goroth (after nothing I'm aware of) and my last one is Akloth (after nothing either) :roll:

But my nickname name on this forum comes from my last computer's name :wink:

The Slackware box is called mouxla (means mold in Greek) named after the mold found on the walls of my former residence.

I'm still trying to figure out a name for my less-than-one-day-old Gentoo Linux laptop. :roll:

Update
I think I'll name it jinx. :roll:

My 2 computers are just named their models: pavilion and ipccs1. But I named my sister's computer "The Burninator" when she wasn't looking (Trogdor, homestarrunner.com). I know a guy that names all his computers after Star Trek ships / stations (DS9, Voyager, Defiant...). His home network is called Starfleet which is part of a bigger network (I think for his family business) called UFP.

My Desktop: Gemini (Because it has 2 monitors, and because its my zodiac sign)
Downstairs 'family' computer over which I have no control whatsoever: DellDesktop4300 (UGH..)
I have many old 386's and 486's just sitting in my basement, I might try to get them running again if someone can help me come up with some good names for them. :wink:

Perfect for debian though, they pre-compile everything i386 so you're set.
