Your calculator names
« on: July 22, 2013, 07:45:45 pm »
It seems a some of us have named our calculators, and those who have more than one might have a naming pattern for them.

I named my (plain black) TI-83 Plus during a phase when I was really into Greek mythology, so she (it?) ended up with the title of Helen, the most beautiful woman in the world. (...) As I got more calculators they were also named after roughly human Greek mythological figures. Casios get male names, TIs get female.

TI-83 Plus: Helen
TI-84 Pocket.fr: Calypso
TI-Nspire CX CAS: Persephone
Casio PRIZM: Hector

How do you pick names for your calculators? Male/female? Common/rare names?

So should the CE be called Achilles?

I didn't name my calculators but my new computer is called Jean-Frédérique II (Jean-Frédérique was my iMac), my iPod Touch's (2nd gen O.O) name is Pierre-Alain-Paul-Jacques. I call my Nexus 4 Pierre-Alain-Paul-Jacques Junior. :P
As you can see I gave them male names composed of cheesy french names, just for fun (my cousin calls his desktop Dagobert XD).

TI-83+ : Carly
TI-84+SE : Trixie
TI-76.fr : Lulii
Nspire CX CAS : Athéna
Casio Prizm : Alstroemeria
TI-84+CSE : Roxanna (Roxie)

The pattern I used : all z80 have a name terminated by the sound "ee" in some way (more accurate when pronouced by French people), and all color calcs have a name finished by a "a". Now the funny thing is the CSE.
I own: 83+ ; 84+SE ; 76.fr ; CX CAS ; Prizm ; 84+CSE
Sorry if I answer with something that seems unrelated, English is not my primary language and I might not have understood well. Sorry if I make English mistakes too.

Lol Deep Thought there's a french community member who use the Persephone nickname actually. Make sure you avoid confusion if you ever talk a lot about your calc on forums. :P

As for my calcs they have no name as well, although in my early days of programming, during long periods of debugging, I often called my 83+ and 83+SE "Ma tabarnack de caliss d'ostie d'vache" or some similar stuff, ready to throw it through a wall or something. :P

In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

If you are talking about TI-Planet, I just wen through the member list and found no one named Persephone. Maybe you were confusing with Persalteas.

I think it's Planète-Casio or another site. I might have spelled it wrong, though, but it's not Persalteas.
