I started of with a metal theme for my computers.. Silver (desktop), Titanium (laptop) and Pewter (laptop) and Mercury (router).. and then I ended up with another router called Singularity.. not sure where that came from..

Are you suggesting that singularities are made of some sort of metal we've never seen before?

If you amount enough metal it might collapse under it's own weight and you'd get a singularity.

Maybe I just ended up with enough computers to collapse them into a singularity?

The gravitational force is strong with this one.

It'd be a handy way to clean up a bunch of old boxes... a bit too handy mind you

Oh, I named the machine yui because of the anime series "K-On!".

I'm sure I've responded to this thread before, and my computers' names still are random 7-character or less anime or game-sourced names, originally having some link to why I deployed the specific computer, otherwise just random... Infrastructure (like routers, printers, etc.) would tend to get boring names like "router" or "laserjet".

I tend to name all my window-only boxes anime antagonists and all others, including dual boots, tend to be protagonists or neutral (at least when I first had the computer (but no set standard if the machine gets repurposed). Needless to say that there are very few villain names since most of my machines run Linux.

My current gaming/high computational bandwidth system is currently named "yuri" (name borrowed from another machine that used to be my fastest machine), and I originally had a "kei" which was also a fairly fast machine that I put together around the same time - both machines being my "high speed compute farm" of sorts. Later I got a huge heavy Itanium2 rackmount and named it "mughi" to give them a big fat "pet" project ...

My server however was from another series, and I'm sure I have it in my code examples when I post example command lines...
