Username Change?

Is it possible to change my username in the forums? (or for the site overall?).

While "Toril" worked well for my name on BBS's a good 10-15 years ago, lately I've been trying to consolidate my online monikers into one. "FredR" is just as good, as it outlines my real name.

I'm having this huge internal crisis, as I'm an enormous fan of Linux and Linux Journal, but I'm hesitant to post more in the forums as my (now dated) former BBS nickname.

I'm hoping the Webmistress can help me with this one.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
