  1. @David:

    I agree, but some people have a natural aversion to command line.

  2. You should add for those like me that removed that ugly messaging applet, you can get to the same dialog via the System/Preferences/About Me menu entry.

  3. This is a useful post; however, I have a different problem. I want to use the same password, but mix up the case. When I try do do so, I get a message that the new password is too similar to the old one. Any ideas how to fix this?

  4. @Trinae – change your password to something completly different, then change it again to the mixed case version you want.

  5. @Gav: *blushes* uh, why didn’t I think of that? I guess sometimes the simple route is overlooked. Thank you very much for your help.
