I just decided on a name for my supah-sexxy LaCie external hard drive. (Seriously... look at it... it's .65x3x5" and a little over 6 ounces. How is that not sexy?) In keeping with my Norse lore naming scheme, I named it Mimir, after the giant that guards the "Well of Highest Wisdom." Odin sacrificed an eye for a drink from Mimir's Well; I think it's somewhat apt.

Mimir joins Fensalir the laptop, Bifrost, my other laptop, now darkwolfie's, Skald the PDA, Ratatosk the printer, Seidh the jump drive, Saga the iPod (Svartalf, my black nano, was stolen from me, damned thief) and Yggdrasil the wireless network. I'm sure we'll all be very happy together.

(I'm tempted to rename the hard drive and the jump drive Hugin and Munin... maybe I'll rename Seidh when my new jump drive comes in, 'cause then I'll have a set.)

i feel: silly silly

I've told you our computer naming scheme, yes? Similar to yours, but through the filter of Wagner?

I think you did -- that's very cool!

Also, I just bought a Playmobil Viking "starter set" that I didn't entirely need for my "Wagner's Ring in Playmobil!" silliness... solely because it came with 2 ravens. A dork is me!

Nah. My girlfriend had all the medieval sets they offered, and then gave them to a friend's kids. Now that she's about to have a baby of her own, she's looking forward to buying them again.

When you complete your set, though, you should stage it and then take pictures, sort of an opera in fifteen minutes kind of dealie.

It is sexy, but Björn has another Lacie that is even sexier. If I remember correctly, it lights up :)

I just dig the fact that mine was designed by F.A. Porsche.

When I was at my Dad's getting my current computer set up, he asked me for names with like three seconds notice. Considering how bad I am at coming up with stuff on the spot, I think I didn't do too bad.

The three drives/partitions on my machine are for software, data, and backup. So they got named Sam, Daniel, and Jack.

Wondering if you'll get that particular reference.

My current computer doesn't have a name (unless "*&*&^*&^$# piece of $hit!" counts).

However, at one point, I had a mac classic II named Finn MACCool, and the unkillable printer (dropped several times, never broke) was Cuchulainn.
