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.
