I had always wanted to name devices in a douglas adams theme:

prefect
zaphod
arthur
trillion
marvin
vogon
milliways
theguide
fortytwo
harmless
mostly
towel
dirk
gently

the combinations are endless....

and if you're not familiar with the late mr. adams' work, you are truly
missing out on some of the most bizaar thought processes ever encountered
on this or any other planet.... ;)

do yourself a favor and google 'hitchhikers guide galaxy'
