Winner of the non-contest

There were a few good nominees for the Name the Computer Non-Contest.

* Mr. Bingley: "maggot." I kind of liked, except for the thought of how to feed it. The only raw material on hand are the innards of the War Horse. It seemed rather cannibalistic.

* Another friend was in the lead with "Alphonse," a Fullmetal Alchemist in-joke. Like Al, the new PC is larger than its older brother. This was a working title while I pondered.

* Joel of ChezJoel had a great suggestion! He didn't want to steal my thunder, he said, so he never shared it, leaving me to guess. I'm afraid I'm not nearly clever enough to figure it out for sure, though I have a couple of thoughts.

* Stacy, who is Not a Desperate Housewife (really!), voted "none of the above." Must be a guy thing, she thought. Maybe it's just a me thing. (PS - link, sadly, not safe for work.)

As befits the NCNC, however, the winner didn't even enter. Come on down, Ms. Sister - the new PC is hereby christened Diptera.

I'd like to thank the academy and my awesome competition. What a shame you're such losers. I'll be there for the awards ceremony only if my demands are met ~ a box of creme puffs and a large check. Otherwise, I send in the Indian Princess to do her speech.

Thank you. Thank you very much.

Especially BINGLEY.

No, "Diptera" wasn't what I was thinking. I can't remember what I was thinking. Let's just say I was thinking "spit bubble" and that you considered it, but, well...who can resist Diptera?
