Kapturek, Gossamer, Blossom!

Few days ago I got company laptop refreshed (from Lenovo Thinkpad t460s to t490s). So it needed a new name…

I name my personal devices by characters from Winnie the Pooh books. More info about it in blog post from 2012.

But this is company laptop…

Rule above applies only to my own machines (or ones I maintain). For company hardware I use names from other stories. And those characters have to be red.

In 2013 I got first laptop. It got name ‘kapturek’ after “Czerwony Kapturek” (Little Red Riding Hood).

As we replace laptops every three years 2016/7 brought another one. I could just move operating system from one machine to another but it is new machine so new name.

It became ‘gossamer’ after monster from Looney Tunes:

Today I am installing operating system on 3rd laptop. Again, which name to choose…

Quick web searching gave me some characters to choose from. So this laptop will be called ‘blossom’ after Blossom from The Powerpuff Girls series:

Blossom from The Powerpuff Girls
Blossom from The Powerpuff Girls

Now I have some time before choosing new name ;D
