OT: Tech name for my new pup?
« on: October 14, 2012, 10:42:19 pm »
I just bought a new beautiful Siberian husky and need a nerdy name. I really wanted to call her WiFi or Sudo but they dont sound like a girl names :(

Wifi, Edge, Sansa? Any other good nerdy/tech names?

Well, at the risk of being too obvious, I'm going to say Lika. Siberian... astronaut. Seems to make sense.

Beautiful dog.

How about SCSI :D
Maybe one day you'll get her a partner and then they simply interface.  :P

Name him Schrodinger, because every hour he has a 50% chance of killing your neighbour's cat!

Or maybe MELF.
For EEs it's one thing, for others it's quite another. ::)

I thought it took replacing the E with an I for that.  ;)

Given what big furry dogs I've owned tend to do during the summer (hot & humid climate), the alternative (electronic) meaning of "Most End up Lying on the Floor" fits very well IMHO. :P

Commodore Grace is good but I don't think she was an EE. How about "Mrs. Rowan Atkinson", Mr. Bean is an EE.
