If a typewriter is still "engaged in a rapt contemplation Of the thought, of the thought, of the thought of his name: His ineffable effable Effanineffable Deep and inscrutable singular Name"Then maybe you should for a time simply address it as "O Typewriter" and offer it "some little token of esteem" like a fresh ribbon, or oil, or something.With apologies to T.S. Eliot.
I have a few keepers that won't divulge their names either. (I even tried various schemes for turning their serial numbers into letters.)They have enough character to *have* names. (They are like cats that way.)
