    I used to have a BlackBook, and so the transferred hard drive from that machine has kept the name "BlackBook." Keeping with that theme, my TM drive is called Black Monolith, the media drive is called Blacktacular, the backup for it is called Blakula.

    I probably should rename my boot drive "BlackBook Pro."

    Which Silmarillion characters? Kudos for slogging through that book BTW.
    Feanor was my old Mini and Angband was it's old external Time Machine disk.

    Took about 4 times of starting and stopping, and then starting from the beginning again before I made it though from cover to cover in one read. It was like watching a film starring foreign actors with thick accents speaking English - took me some time to get in the groove and figure out what means what.

    I feel your pain. I think I read once where some critic referred to the Silmarillion as the "Genesis" of Middle Earth because of all the lineage tracing. My wife swears that the book makes more sense if you read the second half of it first. I just can't force myself to read it again to see if she is right.

    I always name my drives. My iTunes drive is Wurlitzer, my startup drive is Canis Minor, and my photo drive and backups are named after famous photographers, in alphabetical order of their use.

    When I worked tech support at Apple we had a Mac in our lab with both Motorola and Intel (coulda been AMD or IBM) chips so it could run OS 7 and Windows at the same time. I named it Zaphod Beeblebrox.

    She was right. I ended up reading reference to an "old story" that Aragorn was telling the Hobbits. Since I followed that story fairly well in LotR, I looked it up in Silmarillion and read it. It went well enough and the story was really good so I read forward a few more stories. Eventually, the references in the stories escaped me since I had skipped the beginning and had no background for who was who. I went back and started reading it from the beginning and it had some relevant info this time through that inspired me to keep going. I doubt I'd have made it through otherwise!

    I usually just use my name for my drives or a nickname. Need to start getting more adventurous.

    Ironically enough, I just changed my new 2TB drive to "Chuck Norris" and its just stopped working last night. Typical.
