Hardware Hacking‎ > ‎


eTo name something is to control it. I name my devices after minor (and not-so-minor) characters in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I try to stick to the novels, but sometimes venture into the radio or film series. Names in italics are for devices I no longer own, and so I've re-used the name.



  • Garkbit
    • I can't actually name my Android device (there's no "Device name" setting in the "About device" section), but I'm going with that.


  • Zem: Macbook Pro (no longer own it)
  • Lallafa: my personal MacBook Air (also .lallafa is the TLD of my localhost, instead of more common .local)
  • Prak: my MacBook Air for work
  • Lintilla: my M1 MacBook Air
