Laptop computer name.

Oh, yeah. I've decided on a computer name for my laptop. It has been dubbed:
nausicaa

For those not familiar with it, nausicaa is the lead character in the greatest Anime ever created, Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind. It was created by Miyazaki and Ghibli studios, of Princess Mononoke (among others) fame.

The bad thing is, Nausicaa was never released outside of Japan. (Well, technically a horrible and disgusting edit of it called "Warriors of the Wind" was released in the US, and in English, but literally a quarter of the movie was edited out. They decided that only by removing the entire plot would american audiences (read: kids) like it). This is actually the reason that Princess Mononoke is the first Miyazaki film released in the US in the past 15 years, too. His bad experience with Nausicaa soured him greatly towards US distribution. I consider this a huge loss, as he is the greatest Anime genius of our time.
