Announcing – LIL PIM

It came to me last night; I guess I should say early this morning because it was about 2am. I’ve been looking for a name for my shiny and new (as yet un-named) Pocket PC. You see, I always name my computers, sounds nuts but I feel like it gives the usually impersonal things a chance at having a personality. It isn’t much but it’s a bit (no pun intended) of hope for the poor things. Here’s an example, my workstations are all named after the dwarfs from Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. My home PC is Sleepy and my work PC is Happy. I had a laptop named Dopey but that’s another story.

Until early this morning, I was having a hard time finding a name that fit my Pocket PC; maybe because I just don’t feel connected to it yet. Or, maybe because he doesn’t have a wardrobe yet, don’t know at this point. So I was laying in my bed, staring at the white ceiling, wishing I had passed on the late night espresso and SHAZAM! it came to me. LIL PIM. My new Toshiba e740 Pocket PC had a name. The name fit my new toy perfectly. I almost shot out of bed to write the thought down but the plan faded quickly along with the espresso buzz.

Where did the name come from you ask? Or maybe (most likely) you really don’t care but you’re bored so you’ll keep reading this. I was cleaning up my favorites page and I came across and oldie but goody, mediatrip.com. I decided to give the link a click for old times sake and the 1st thing I saw was a web comic called LIL’ PIMP. I let the comic run its course and I even sent a link to my LIL brother but I left it at that with no further thought until last night; SHAZAM! A little espresso, a pinch of creative thought and LIL PIM was born.

Why LIL PIM? What’s the connection? Not sure yet, it’s a vibe. Maybe LIL PIM used his 802.11b wi-fi abilities to vibe the thought to me. I’ll never know for sure. He is LIL, although he could lose a few ounces, he knows a lot of phone numbers, he makes lots of calls and need be, he can handle cash transactions.

I’m not sure what my Pocket PC thinks of his new name but it fits his personality. LIL PIM
