    Anyone else find the term "rig" when referring to your own computer as annoying to the point of a facial "wince"?

    It is like pulling a bicep pose and saying look at my "pipes". puke:

    It`s not a term that I use very often, if at all.

    It certainly doesn`t bother me :p

    What is it about the term "rig" that annoys you?

    Regards Howard :) :)

    lol, I've never heard the term used yet. I think of a "rig" as like a well drilling rig or maybe a large moving truck.
    So then, fill in the blank of what you like best:

    "I just upgraded, so check out my " [blank] "now!"

    I would proabably use the term "system".

    I have no probs with it being called that - though I don't know anyone who does. I usually call mine either "my machine" or "my baby."
