    Changing the machine name?
    Hello,

    When I first set up our iMac, it gave us the opportunity to "name" the machine.

    I wish to change this, but for the life of me I can't figure out where I do this.

    I have checked through everything on System Preferences.

    Thanks!
    Oh, and, aahh, I'm going to have to go ahead and ask you to come in on Sunday, too...yeah

    Look in Sharing prefs. At the top where it says Computer name you can edit the text box.

    Question Well ? Enquiring minds want to know.
    Assuming you figured out how to do it, to what did you re-name your machine ? :confused:
    Personally, I'm rather partial to"INFERNAL_COMPUTING_MACHINE". :bushman:
    BTW For what it's worth, this is my very first post here @ MacForums. :p
