Me neither. My machines have their hostnames as Beast and Animal. It makes them easy to remember... Animal is on switch A on my monitor switch, Beast is on switch B.

Lets see, I have SlackBox, Darkstar, requiem, Kitty and Big kitty.
Darkstar - was put apart and sold,
Kitty died, its sitting in the corner, i think the PSU burned out
Big kitty was reformatted and that evil OS was installed on it, and it was transfered to my father's office
Requiem is next to me, but currently without a monitor, since i have dualhead on SlackBox, i can still SSH and use it through slackbox tho.
I'm thinking about buying a laptop as well, but they cost so damn much and if i buy one i would like to buy the best i can get, since in computer technology clock speeds double every 18 months (Who was the guy who predicted that again?) so it's useless buying a average laptop just to sell it in a year...

Well, i bet you all are interested in what my computers are called...

Ah, and I have nebuchadnezzar (Slackware 8.1) and matrix (gentoo 1.4), though matrix is slowly comming to its end - PSU died recently, one memory stick went along with it, heatsink on the CPU fan is falling appart, etc.

I consider it to be the best background site on the planet.
However, Evilbox, is that not a background you can only get if you are member?, you need to pay to become a member Thymox. but they also have free backgrounds, i.e. my background. check it out at

Ah, yes! I see the 'digi in the bottom right, now. I just went over to db's and yes, that one is a members-only. Got some pretty cool backgrounds, and some anims to play (with Mplayer) for my backgrounds... because I am that sad.

Here is a new one for me.
This is my laptop running Mandrake 9.0 using KDE 3.0.3 for the wm.
http://linuxuser.no-ip.org/ScreenShotNew.htm

Sorry about the pop up you will get.
The box I was using as a web server died so for a quick fix I posted to Tripod and just changed my no-ip to a redirect.
