    Changing the computer's name...
    The one that comes up, the name of the original owner. I got this Mac a while ago from someone who owed me money and every time a trouble message pops up it has that guy's name in it. Makes me feel like I'm dating a woman who still has pictures of her ex all over the place. Can this be altered? Thanks.

    Goto System Preferences -> Sharing and change the computername there.

    A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
    The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
