I'll miss you, Lappy :(
My laptop's name is Lappy too... And I should be studying statistical mechanics but I just found these comics.. Can't stop reading... Argh, cursed be ye!
Awww... I get emotional attachment to stuff like that all the time. I feel bad that I use my new headphones, pencils, t-shirts.... I always feel like I'm betraying my old stuff! Except my new laptop. Her name is Evangeline, and I love her so much more than the old piece of crap buried in my room.
I name all of my nameable electronics. It's quite amazing what personalities they can have.
I named my laptop Ace because my is an Acer
I name things that complex enough to be misterious and have habits / character :) So my computer is Mushi (half-sentient half-beings in an anime, fits a computer pretty well :D) and my motorcycle is Teresa (she's dressed in silver and DOES have superhuman strength and modest appetite). My camera doesn't have a name though :-/ only that little hotpixel in the lower left corner, Lulu...
I call all laptops lappys, and my lappy's name is Minnie. :D
I always dismantle all my old electronics...parts and pieces of my old phone are right here right now anyway...can't take apart the laptop though cause it's going to my sister :)
I call my laptop Toppy =D
I named mine laptop Compunter. Nobody told me that a 17" hp laptop/cement block baked in hot coals was not a good idea for college. But for some reason, i still love my Compunter.
Oh my GOD. That's exactly what it was like when my boyfriend dismantled my laptop this summer! I was dying inside. I had to leave the room.
I name all my computers and external hard drives, haha. My server's "Penny," my MacBook Pro's "Alice" and the various hard drives are White Rabbit, Dave, Michael, Marty, Seamus, Enterprise, Yamato, Remus, and Romulus, ^_^ I'm a bit of a nerd. Hence I always love disassembling a nice laptop or computer whenever I get the chance ;-)
My husband likes to dismantle laptops, too. It is when he is truly happy!
I've had 4 laptops Larry, Butch, Luna, and Horo, i would have protected the first three with my life had i had the chance, I'm never going to let what happened to Luna happen to Horo.
Mines Garrett the Gateway if you were wonderin.
my laptop's name is yuuta, and i kind of have an emotional feeling with my laptop too :D
I name my computers...and I create backstories for them...so don't worry, you're just as sane as I am!
When my laptop died: I used his body parts to make another one
...after reading the comics, I don't know if we're all sane or if we're all a little insane lol. I had a weird emotional attachment to my last laptop (got a new one last month) and named it Colonel Toshi because it was really old and it was a Toshiba. Also because I kept finding fried chicken crumbs inbetween the keys even though I haven't eaten fried chicken for a couple months. >.>
My new Kindle's name is Porygon, but I definitely don't love my books any less ^^
@ Bridget this is not an unhealthy emotion, the economy of planned obsolescence and disposable goods is not only offensive to the earth but to the subconscious and the attachment we grow to things we actively appreciate through being mindful in our daily lives, which are basically tools for survival in our subconscious. Dont ever change, stay mindful.
