    Is it normal to name you computer?

    A conversation I had today:

    Sib says:
    Micom?
    I won... and may never win again. says:
    Yeah.
    Sib says:
    What's that?
    I won... and may never win again. says:
    What do you mean? Micom is Micom.
    Sib says:
    What's Micom?
    I won... and may never win again. says:
    Not what. Who.
    Sib says:
    ?
    I won... and may never win again. says:
    lol, my computer.
    Sib says:
    You named your computer? lol
    I won... and may never win again. says:
    Yes. Haven't you?
    Sib says:
    Ermm... no, can't say I have actually. ^^;;
    Sib says:
    But why did you call it Micom?
    I won... and may never win again. says:
    (It's a she), and Micom just means 'My Computer' really. MECOMP > MICOM
    I won... and may never win again. says:
    Get it?
    Sib says:
    Not really. ^^;;
    So is that normal? Not just with computers either, but others things like cars and even toasters. Admittedly I have named a few of my toy animals, but that's not the same thing though... or is it? I'm not sure anymore.

    Hmmm... He's not technically human, so it wouldn't really be like cannibalism...

    Yes actually, it is normal to name your computer. In fact if you network it it's required. This one is Althea and a friend of mine named his Chun (think Remo Williams).

    Can you say LAN party?

    Thanks to Microsoft's "My ___" theme, users kinda have to name their computer, whether or not they're on a LAN. It'll end up being called OEMCOMPUTER or something anyway.

    People always seem to name cars, maybe as a carryover from sailors naming ships. I just call mine "the Matrix" (Tokyo 2040, Priss's bike is just "Moto-slave" and it has an AI!). I'm not sure about people naming toasters, but there are probably other household appliances that get names based on their "personalities".
