01:59 pm - Computer name
I named the computer I'm using for tazfrog's firewall 'Santa'. It decides who's naughty or nice. :-) Also, it fits in with the 'childhood fear' theme for the names of my other computers. The kid that bursts into tears on Santa's lap is afraid.
I like the fact that it twists something cheerful and bright into something dark with a fearful edge to it. Not that I think Christmas is bunk or anything like that. I like Christmas (or, well, the secular version - commercialism anyway). It's just interesting and intriguing that even the brightest and most cheery things can be ominous or scary from the right perspective.
