Help Me Name My New Computer
A few weeks ago, The Beast died. The Beast was my first desktop PC I bought when I moved out of home. He had done me well over the last few years, but in the days leading up to his death, I could tell it was time to move on. He was struggling to perform simple tasks and really, really struggled when I asked him to do something complicated like creating graphics or making movies. Last week, I placed an order for a new machine. I wanted to make sure that everything inside the box would cope with the work out I wanted to give it. I paid so much attention to the insides, that I didn’t really put any consideration into what it would look like.
I didn’t expect something that would be at home on a Formula 1 race track. When I opened up the packaging to find this bright red beauty, I was a very happy man. Yes, red computers do go faster.
The packaging on this baby says: “Unique race car design. Utilizing an advanced spray-painting process usually reserved for high performance automobiles, the F430’s plastic is redered in the high gloss of metallic automobile paint, express the spirit of cutting-edge racecar design!”
Here’s my problem. Before the computer arrived, I was all set to call him ORAC, named after the computer in Blake’s 7. However, after opening him up, he doesn’t look like an ORAC. I need suggestions for a name. Any ideas?
