Computers

To those who believe naming computers is nuts, I direct you to RFC 1178.

Cameron

Cameron is my new primary workstation. She is a custom-built machine with an Intel Core i7-4790K processor at 16 GB of RAM. She runs Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center, and has a NVIDIA GTX 970 graphics card. She also has a 256 GB SSD, and a variety of drives in hot swap bays. She's fairly unique in using Cooler Master's HAF XB case, which makes her relatively portable.

Cameron is named for both Kiera Cameron from Continuum and also the character from Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

Caroline

Caroline is my television system. She is a custom-built full tower with an Intel Core i7-2600k processor and 16 GB of RAM. She runs Windows 10 Pro. She has a NVIDIA GTX 670 graphics card, a 256 GB SSD, and aside from her 2 TB hard drive, an additional 1 TB of RAID 1 (mirrored) storage.

Caroline is, like Echo, named after the main character from Dollhouse, as well as the personality who GLaDOS is based on from Portal 2.

Echo

Echo is my home automation controller. She is a heavily-modified Acer Aspire AM5800-U5801A tower with an Intel Core 2 Q8300 Quad processor and 8 GB of RAM. She runs Windows 7 Ultimate Edition.

Echo is named after the main character from Dollhouse.

Widow

Widow is my offsite backup machine. She is a Dell XPS 420 with a Intel Core 2 Q6600 Quad processor and 3 GB of RAM. She runs Windows 7 Professional Edition. Recently upgraded with a NVIDIA GTS 450 graphics card, she's now capable of holding her own for gaming as well. Widow uses a Seagate BlackArmor NAS to back up files from my primary machines.

Widow is named after Black Widow from The Avengers.

Mari

Mari is a Surface Pro 4 I carry regularly. She's a Core i5 model with 128 GB internal storage and 4 GB of RAM.

Mari is named after Mari McCabe, also known as Vixen in DC Comics.
