      DV! Help me name my freaking computer.

      So, I'm getting a new computer in april. It's a custom built one with an older I7, 8gb of ram, decent graphics card, 1k watt power supply, oh and it's black and red. I really wanted to build my next computer, but my previous one died on me, so I had to get something asap. But moving on....every computer I've purchased or built, I'd give it a name. And not only that, every computer I've had, has always had the same name: Darin. I'm thinking of something different. I know I want it to be either a girls name, or an Adjective.

      Any suggestions? I'll probably place a poll once I come up with a list.

      Angela - That's what I named my car.
      Joanna - Because I randomly thought of it just now.
      Kitty - Extra points for irony if the computer's really big.

      I'm also thinking about Natalia...after the Marvel Triple agent Black Widow...since it's black and red. LOL at Botrice and bastud. I kinda like Joanna too, but I also dated one, and I'm trying to avoid naming her (and her hard drives) after an ex. And yeah, the irony factor would be full on if I named it kitty...it's about the size of a toddler, but probably heavier. The guy selling it to me had it strapped in the seatbelt like it was a kid.

      I named my rain, when I code I go under the name Raindancer, my program suite is Rainmaker, maybe find something you can identify to how you use your computer?

      Yeah, I like that...it makes sense. Actually it's pretty freaking clever. I'll be using mine for IT class, and gaming....oh yeah, and DV. I'm still leaning towards Natalia.

      Ahh, but what if you find a sexy secret agent/spy from the KGB named Natalia. After a summer long fling of sex and murder she ends up leaving you for boris, the butcher down the way. Then everytime you see Natalia your heart will ache just a little.

      Perfect end for an imperfect life. My computers in the past were named after exes....even the hard drives.

      When hard drives started using flash memory instead of disks, I started naming my computers after science fictional faster-than-light drives. Why? Because one of the names for a flash memory drive is "jump drive." My current drive's name is Inversion Drive, from Catherine Asaro's Saga of the Skolian Empire.

      Me neither. I've never named my computers... my cars on the other hand, and my GPS... I get stuck with "old" names for some reason. There was Nona (the van), Gretta (my new CRV) and Mildred (the GPS).
      I usually just call my computer's "stupid machine" when they're misbehaving
