    Do you use your first name or first and last name for your Mac's name?
    Is your name in the finder just your first name or is it your first and last name?

    I just use my initials as it's shorter. A long user name is really not necessary. You can use most anything from your nickname to your wife's maiden name.

    I fixed your poll. Not everyone is going to use their own name for their account. And if they do, they might not use your conventions.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
