My Macbook pro is great but I noticed the other day that if I use flame or bonjour services people can see it labeled as My full name. i want to change this to something like ManiacBook or something other thenmy name so they dont know it is my computer from seeing my name. How do I do this, Thanks

Are you sure it's not just using your short user name (which can't be changed)?
Your computer's name is located in System Preferences > Sharing. At the top.I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.
They're - Their - There | Two - Too - To | You're - Your | MAC - MacI was on the M-F honor roll for October, 2006.
