Do you name your folding rigs?

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
I thought this might be just kind of a fun thread...

I have 7 computers at home that are all used for folding (when it's not terribly hot out) and I have started naming them to make it easier when I'm talking to my wife, and on here, about them.

They are:
  • Mother (my TC rig, named after the computer in Alien)
  • R2-D2 (my 2700k rig that is my main rig right now, don't know how I came up with that tongue.gif)
  • Firefly (my old Gateway Pentium 4 rig that runs my HFM, named for the series)
  • Lappy486 (my old Gateway laptop that folds when its not 90+ degrees outside, named for Strong Bad's laptop)
  • Johnny 5 (another old Pentium 4 Gateway that I'm actually giving to a coworker later this week, named from Short Circuit)
  • 3570k (my 3570k that I haven't named yet)
  • Courtney (Needs to be named, the chich that gave it to me was Courtney and it still shows on my network as "Courtney-HP", its an i5 laptop that I use as our HTPC, I got it in exchange for getting her info off of it because the screen no longer works...Hooked up an HDMI cable, bluetooth keyboard and bam! HTPC!)

So I was just wondering...Do you name your rigs? If so, do you use the names when talking about your computers? And where how did you come up with the names?

As for me, yes, I do use the names in conversation, this has become the only way my wife can keep them straight, its easier for her than saying "My 2700k rig," I just say, "Hey, can you go look at R2 and let me know if he's still running?" She thinks its funny.

Also, I name all mine after computers/robots/ships from my favorite movies. I still have 2 that need names (3570k is a new build and has yet to be named, will probably be C3P0 but I'm not sure yet, and Courtney will be renamed once I do a wipe of the harddrive and it stops showing up as Courtney-HP on my network).

Anyway, I look forward to seeing how you guys name your rigs!! tongue.gif

I do name my rigs, all have a name from Norse mythology. Trying to be a little clever and give them a suitable name that corresponds to one of the heroes/figures and their special niche.

But I haven't yet resorted to use them in conversation, not enough people in this house here...

MOTHER and Johnny 5, classic. thumb.gif
My main rig that I also fold on sometimes is named after a computer from an English TV comedy series called Red Dwarf, a show about a deep space mining ship of the same name. The ships computer, Holly (a parody of computers such as HAL 9000 and MOTHER) pretended to have replaced by 'Queeg 500' and tormented the crew. It was a classic episode. I have also had computers called Holly.

I never had a name for my 2500k, which was my gaming rig until I built my m-atx rig. The 2500k became my dedicated folding rig and couldn't think of anything clever so it became Foldy McFolder. I was trying to think of a name for my m-atx build and came up with Minivalidus, which apparently is Latin for something that is small but powerful. My office rig doesn't have a name unless you count me calling it "Ugly". I recently acquired an older ('09) HP 2P server that is going to be running 2x X5460s. It'll be my storage server but I'll have it folding as well. I Guess I should come up with a name for it too.

My computers are named after the color they were orginally, but I have since painted them since then, to match the rooms they are in.

Blue machine is now red,
Green machine is now blue,
White machine is now pink,
and Black machine is now orange.

I and my family refer to them in their orginal colors, though this will become a down side when my 5 year old has to go to kindergarden this August.

Yep. smile.gif

My main rig is currently "UNIT 01", so named after the Evangelion Unit-01. It was originally named Unit-00 (the prototype) when it was being built, then renamed to Unit 01 when I put in the water cooling and finished it.

And the 24/7 rig is "Hot Box" because its a full ATX motherboard in a tiny case. And since it runs 24/7 it can get pretty toasty in that little box. wink.gif
