“Who’s this ‘Haunter of the Dark’ who keeps calling you ?”

Random geek post. A few months ago I upgraded my Nexus 5 to the Google Pixel (not the XL). I'd transfered over all the files, and the device's name, NecronomIpod. (cheerfully stolen from Charles Stross). But it didn't feel right, devices have their own personalities, and I generally give their own names. (Yes, I'm weird that way). So, Saturday came around, and I was re-listening to 'The Haunter of the Dark' radio play. I was pondering the magic McGuffin of the story, and thought "It's dialing 'N' for Nyarlathotep!". *bing* I have name. So my phone's new name is 'The Shining Trapezohedron', with shiny new wallpaper from Gage Prentiss' design for the Robert Bloch Award from the NecronomiCon Providence. Nerd, thy name is Vulpine. Now lets see if Calls to Cthulhu have less static, and if calling Yuggoth won't be long distance any more.
