as do other devices like phones or tablets

You're right. I'm not a real cop. Those are imaginary handcuffs. And in a minute, we'll be going to the make-believe jail.

Why not "DS9" or "Terok Nor" for the Media Server?

Well the theme is Federation ships - and technically DS9 doesn't qualify as a ship. Yes I'm a dork.

My main Wifi is "Infinite Improbability Drive" and the guest wifi is "Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster".

I wonder if any of the neighbors get that these are Douglas Adams references, or do they just think it's random strangeness.

I change it to "Marvin the Paranoid Android" sometimes, too.

The name of my router in my college apartment was "Father O'Mally's Pornocopia". Cue about 5 months worth of awkward smoke break conversations with neighbors wondering who was demented enough to come up with such a terrible router name and some dumb girls legitimately wondering if a possible child molesting priest was living in the complex.

I miss that fucker of a router. It was fun as gently caress to listen to one of our rear end in a top hat roomates scream in nerd-goon rage when his connection to Eve Online would die because one of us would be banning/unbanning his MAC address, or just randomly resetting the thing.

I'm pretty uncreative, so I named them after their CPU and GPU architecture names. As best I could tell, there wasn't a name for the IVB IGP.

I used to have really neat computer names, but these days I've been naming things after gem stones (iPad is Opal, desktop is Sapphire, laptop is Obsidian). My wifi network is named "NAME's Evil Botnet"

Wonder if my neighbors got a chuckle out of that.

For years I've been able to see a wireless network named "TracyNet", but none of my neighbors for at least three houses in any direction is named "Tracy". WHO ARE YOU, TRACY??

College Slice

My SSID used to be "Black Magic" because it would work (or not) for any given room of the house depending on a set of circumstances I never understood. Then I upgraded the router and now it consistently works everywhere, so it's "WIFIght the inevitable?"

I created an extra SSID "Surveillance van 7" and I enable it and disable it every so often, sometimes changing the number. It hosed with my friend for a bit, but he's a weirdo.

My PC is a boring "Zack-PC", but my network SSID is none other than......I ate the bones.

Named it that under the influence and it was too enjoyable the next day to change.

Network: Magical Fairyland
PCs etc: Octopus (not really on theme but it was the first win 8 install), Cupid, Butterfly, Rainbow, Sparkle, Munchkin, Revo-Pc (I really need to change this one)
Old PCs: Princess, Moonbeam, Sunbeam, and probably some others.

I'm pretty boring in general but my ssid at home is "that-network" ; my fiance stopped me from using "gently caress-off".

One demo I setup we went with a wu-tang naming scheme:

* the firewall was the gza -- it forms like voltron and he is the head
* one WAP / SSID was method-man because there are mad methods to the way we do our poo poo
* the backup WAP / SSID was ghostface because he is on some now you see me now you don't poo poo

There were some others I've since forgotten.
