TODAY IS NAME YOUR PC DAY
They’re your best friend on almost any day, they work tirelessly to keep you in communication with friends and family, connected with work and the goings-on in the world around you. Sometimes they need a little love, and sometimes they need to be recognized as the individuals they are. Just like your cars, your PC has a personality all its own, and just like your car, it deserves a name of its own. Name Your PC Day is your opportunity to stop putting that off and finally christen your PC once and for all.
How to celebrate Name Your PC Day
Name Your PC Day is celebrated by naming your PC, of course! Spend some time and think about it, ask around and talk to your friends, it never hurts to poll those who live in and around you. Be careful about asking your partner, though, they might imply you should name it something that indicates it’s your other lover. One supposes it would be hard to go wrong with a gender neutral name like “Roxanne” in that case, now would it?
