Where can I set the preference to hide the display of computer names for my account?

Only you can see the computer names (and a lot of other details). For example, take a look at my computer list - you\'ll notice that you\'ll see a lot less detail on someone else\'s computers than your own.

But if you do want to hide what little is down, this can be done via \'Your account\', \'general preferences\', \'hide\'. Note that it may take an hour or so before the change comes into effect - but it appears to already have been done.

Could I suggest you change your username from \'root\' to something more unique? :-)
