Hmm, Well, I'm pretty safe with my Newton being a girl...it didn't come with a dongle...

And my wife doesn't call it "a Newton". It's "The Newton"

"There are 10^11 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it's only a hundred billion. It's less than the national deficit! We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we should call them economical numbers."

Ah, I see this naming business is obviously more commonplace than I 

I shall have to think up a name for mine which is definitely definitely 
female.......don't ask me why.

By the way Ed, I don't know about where you live but here Ashley is 
mainly a boys name - you ought to be careful that you haven't done a 
gender reassignment on your Newt or given it an identify crisis? They 
have enough issues as it is, being outmoded, and a last of a species and 

Your lucky your wife calls it a Newton, mine calls mine the green thing!!

Best wishes
