Mine shipped from Nashville too, but it only had like a 6 hour drive to traverse. Woohoo!
All UPS packages go through Nashville...
all of 'em? You sure? I have all sorts of packages that originate in-state and never go outside the state according to their tracking. Then again...they *do* take their sweet time with some packages...

I'm fairly sure. I mean it seems stupid to think that if I ship something from 42nd St to 57th St in NY city that it should go through Nashville, but I guess that's how they do things quickly...
hey it had to stop at microsoft for the latests 2k security upgrade
I had a girlfriend for a year named Julie, though, so Blythe may not like that name. :)
All 5 of your userpics rock, btw.

You know you cant name a computer until after you meet it. You have to observe its personality before you can properly name it. Its the rule.
Comp. names in my house:
P3 500: Tanzor-Z (Grand Mazinger-Z in Japan)
P3 450: Fyvush (after character actor Finkle)
AMD 750: Magnus (Master of Magnestism- deceased)

Re: Computer names
Heh, I have two IP addresses (and thus names) allocated to boxes that aren't even built yet... kumquat and kahuna :)

Re: Computer names
Ditto. My next laptop's name ("magus") and IP are set up.

I second the name Frank.
Or how about Mavis?
Or HAL(-9000 ... if you're a sci-fi buff, you'd understand the reference)?
How's about moof?
orbit, orion, galaxy, neptune, sirius...they're good names...
Name it Hailey.... no no name it Lilly..Lilly the laptop.

Maybe my odd names will give you some inspiration! Okay, probably not... but AXFRs are cool, anyway.
Yeah, I know .ma is the country code domain of Morocco, but since I will never need to access anything in Morocco, it doesn't seem to bother me all that much.
Hmm.. well, if you choose to continue with the southpark theme, I would suggest "starvinmarvin", cause laptops are skinny compared to other computers ;)
PS: I think you should call the BIG/IP "chef", for similar reasons

My laptop's name is C3PO, 3PO for short of course... goes along with my visor, R2. :)
There's plenty of droids to use for names in the SW universe, but doubt you're as much a SW fan as I am... but it's a suggestion. Or you could go with Jedi Masters... :)
Congrats and welcome to the portable world-- I wouldn't trade being able to take 3PO with me anywhere for the world. Okay- maybe for the world but you know what I mean...
How about naming your laptop Timmay?
Aside, of course, from when you call it @#$!& because somethings gone wrong....
i just got Hal-8000 back from their repair center today. don't name your computer after any malfunctioning computer. ever. period. Hal had been having issues of finding his DVD-rom...now he has issues with moving beyond flashing his drive light and his power light at me before turning back off 2 seconds later. stupid Hal...
Mine's named 'Princess'... because my world stops when something's wrong with her.
My puter's (desktop) name is Alexei Vera Anthony; my friend's laptop is Malibu Dessalines Christ. I agree with the earlier comment that you cannot possibly bestow a fitting name on a puter before you meet him/her and get to know one another a little. If you have a theme (as I know you do for the LJ/DJ boxes) I would recommend continuing the theme; but if your laptop is intended for a different purpose, then you should most def deviate from the aforementioned theme. Also, if the initials of your puter's name spells another word/acronym/abbreviation, its good luck. ;^)
