Default New name for computer required

Well, my Windows box died a painful today. MB, CPU, and whatever else, was totally fracked. As a result, I'm going to have to buy a new box. A new box means a new name to think up.

In the past several years, I've named my computers the following names:

stanier
brunel (the one that's just died)
whitton
gresley (current laptop)
euston (current Linux box)
morant (my server in Edmonton)

Any suggestions for a new name?

Well, since you have good ol' Nigel, why not his CPR counterpart? Bowen!
Good choice of Morant for your Alberta box, btw
Personally, mine's named 73h_1337_(0mp\' or something like that, but only because they didn't allow |. =(

To be honest, I'd never heard of Bowen before. There's another name I've just thought of, as well: Barlow.

Whichever way it goes, I intend to keep the railway theme.

Hi, you're not chancy there Down Under, is it too hot there again?
Did a Road Train run over your PC ? You know it seem they smash every thing they met ! If you were looking strange websites, so please don't tell me the details...
And always I click on that link, your website isn't still built: it doesen't built itself you know ! Don't worry I wouldn't blame you on that: I have a website, but no model railroad, the years go by and that g...d...thing doesen't construct itself, I don't understand... (LoL) you see what I mean!
Don't worry, be happy or so.

Please explain «fracked» didn't find that in my dictionnary (I believe thats like «Kaputt» german or wrecked or so...).

Suggestions: Rail-Hammer, Steelrails, Hard-Rail, Switcher, Raileater, Golden Spike, Turntable, Runawaytrain, Locomotion ...

If suspicious avoid: Broken Rail, Railsmasher, Cracked Rail, who might give bad ideas to your hard disc to die again.

My own is named kilroy1313pc ... wasn't that easy to figure out !
