At the beginning, I didn't care about giving a name because I just thought "well, it's a computer. It needs no name, and I have only one computer (at a time) anyway." Later on, I found it useful to give names because, well, we need it for the network anyway. So I began giving names in a Java-class-name's style: MockPad, MockBlackBox, MockSoTinyBook (the full name has some parentheses inside, which is illegal in some cases), and MocktainView. All of them have "Mock" in the names.

But now, as you know, mocbook breaks that pattern somewhat, although not completely. It seems like all-lower-caps naming convention is the way to go nowadays. It's like a fashion. Also, not putting all the letters in the word can make a good name. And most important of all, mocbook sounds (and looks) like macbook, doesn't it?

And it's ok if it doesn't look like the other names; because mocbook is a Mac, and it's a real computer :P ... unlike the others anyway. Hehehe.


Now i'm sure that most of my friends "converge almost surely" to mac. :D

AimIsMad, not AimIsMac :P
