Nearest I've gotten to that one is using the Daedalus icon as my avatar for several years. Complete with algorithmically generated noise using a tool I wrote with C++ and ImageMagick/Magick++. Then I returned to the roots of the Hydrogen Audio furry brigade cat avatar clan by adopting a Daedalus looking manipulation of a photo of my old cat. Then I discovered this beaut.

Props for the reference, sorry for the life story.

Main desktop has been Shodan for a long time. The VMs I use the most are Xerxes and Helios.

PS3 and Xbox 360 are named Piss Tree and XBorx, respectively.

iPod is named Sven.

My network SSID is Wintermute. In college the router in my room was named Buttlord. I regularly met people I'd never even seen before, talked to them for two minutes, and had them say "are you Buttlord?" I don't know what that says about me.

Yeah I've got an "AIs in Fiction" theme going.

Desktop is Icarus
Laptop is Daedalus (internal drive is Morpheus, backup drive has two partitions Headcrash and Xenocrat).

iPad is EDI

Eventually I'd start using Culture ship names since that technically counts. "Frank Exchange of Views", "Attitude Adjuster", "Me, I'm Counting" here I come.

The college my classes are in does the Star Wars planets theme. I've remoted into Geonosis, Mygeeto, Coruscant, and Tatooine at various times.
