Why do my machines have weird names?
I really don't know why my computers have names... they just do. I don't go around calling them by name all day, because that would be weird. I just like them having names.

  • HotSushi is a really weird reference to a Made-in-HK film called Love Cruise. And the machine runs really hot. Get it?
  • Chia Pet McKenzie is a character from William Gibson's novel Idoru.
