Spacesim has many computers, and to distinguish them when networking they are given names taken from mythology, science-fiction, history, and other disciplines. The current tradition when naming computers is to let the person who contributed the box decide the name. Thus, there is a wide variety in the origins of computer names.

Work Laptops

DS Ubuntu Named in reference to its broken screen hinge, reminiscent of early Nintendo DS consoles.
Mizar Ubuntu Named after Alcor's, the computer's previous name before its hard drive was reformatted, naked-eye double. Owned by Jamie Tait-Glossop
