.. is (almost) on its way, probably from Elk Grove. ^_^

So, the pressing issue is: what to call it?

My systems' names have - prepare yourself for amazement - always been quite furry, beginning with red_panda and orca in 1994 (both NeXTstation Turbos, the former then host to FurToonia and Brazilian Dreams II), followed by Raccoon (PB5300c) in 1995, Bunny (Wallstreet) in 1998, Ocelot (rev.A TiBook) in 2001, Mouse (a hand-me-down original iBook courtesy of tgeller) in 2003, and Hyzenthlay (the current one, and still a wonderful system, a final revision PBG4, the last dance of PowerPC and Apple) in 2005.

(Was Hyzenthlay tgeller or loganberrybunny's idea? Not quite sure.. but it's been a particularly pleasant name)

I'd like something that suggests lapinity. Maybe something Watership Down-related again, but that's not a requirement - could be something original, from somewhere else, but lapine somehow. ^_^
Snowshoe? :)
You've been growing increasingly specific with those names. How about dropping back a step? My suggestion is 'Leporid'.
magic-hat-secret...hm, no.
holy-hand-grenade-target... hm, no.
nabaztag... hm, no.
lepor... hm, sounds like a disease.
usagi... hm. Nah, not a samurai.
toki... where the heck have I seen that name lately? Grrr, can't remember. Not Fist of the North Star. Oh, oh, that's right, Toki.
Lapaki. Hawaiian. Not bad.
Conyn, Cornish. Also not bad.

I named Hyzenthlay. :)

My brain has started churning for a new name. For the old one, I was in the middle of rereading Watership Down, so that was easy. Unfortunately I'm now rereading The Jungle which, despite its name, is about as unfurry as you can get. And "Marija Berczynskas" lacks both Hyzenthlay's music and cuteness.
I vote for Yashak or Ayeen.

Depending on your mood towards your computer, Rah or Hraka. :)
Not my naming, as mentioned above, but I wish I'd thought of it! I'm also terrible at thinking of names, so I doubt I'll be much help here. Mind you, if I ever get a little netbook, it might well end up being nicknamed Pipkin...
Probably doesn't help much, but my CF-29 identifies itself as SILVERSONIC to the network. :-)

Although, there was a rabbit badnik named Splats in Sonic 1 that didn't make it to the final version. But that would probably work better for something like one of those little netbooks than it would for a full laptop.
How about Dandelion? After all, he was the storyteller of the warren, and a nice computer system is something a good storyteller could always use :-)
