The other night I realised a weird “pattern” in the names of my computers. My first computer was named Simon and this one is Sullivan — Simon & Garfunkel, Gilbert & Sullivan. What next? Sonny?

Not much of a pattern, they’re just some sort of duos. (I actually thought that Gilbert and Sullivan had something to do with modern music… I was wrong.) I’ve honestly just tried to think of nice names beginning with S (as long as my computer is a Scaleo).

Do you give nicknames to your computers, gadgets or anything? (I don’t mean toys or living things. Nor euphemisms.)
