Changing computer name II - Mac Applications & Software

I think we got sidetracked with discussions of changing the user name, which was included in my question (and which I've abandoned). What I would like to know is much simpler. In the Sharing prefs panel, is it OK to change the computer name and the rendezvous name to something short and sweet rather than the default, which is my full name + computer? Is it safe to assume that I can change it here and no additional changes will be needed? Thx. -- +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ robert b. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++...

    Default Changing computer name II

    I think we got sidetracked with discussions of changing the user name,
    which was included in my question (and which I've abandoned). What I
    would like to know is much simpler.

    In the Sharing prefs panel, is it OK to change the computer name and the
    rendezvous name to something short and sweet rather than the default,
    which is my full name + computer?

    Is it safe to assume that I can change it here and no additional changes
    will be needed?

    Thx.

    That is the only place to change the computer's name, and changing it
    there is all you need to do.

    There's not very much that's affected by the computer name. AFAIK the
    Computer Name is mainly used for AppleTalk networks and it also
    sometimes appears in the BSD layer as the hostname. The Rendezvous name
    is, of course, only used for Rendezvous server discovery.


    (is Rendezvous one word now in Apple-Computer-English?)

    It is one word in regular English. It's two words in French, and in
    the New Yorker.
