>>darn, your nick is better than mine, LOL!

Glad you like it, it took me a while to consider just what I'd like in a new name--one that reflects my current feelings with computers and operating systems...bornagainpenguin was I felt highly appropriate given my old username was iWindoze (something intended to play off the whole iMac and 'lets make windows look like a Mac craze that hit a few years back and originally based on the old Windowblinds skin 'iWin' does anyone even remember that one? but recently I've had people in the Linux community not take me seriously about tryingwanting to move to Linux full time and a name change was appropriate, and this one most appropriate of all...)

unfortunately my 'new' (used) laptop has a few sticky keys and I ended up mistyping my user name....d'ya think there might be a way some how to get the mods to allow me to fix it?

[looks at mods] Hint...hint...Please?

Nice story. My nick was at first FedupPenguin at Distrowatch, I used it when I was annoyed about something. But it wasn't a nick I could keep using forever, so I went for the present one.
Some people say: you are anonymous.
I reply: darn, I am not anonymous, "Anonymous Penguin" is my chosen nickname!
I am also much better known under another nick, but here and at DistroWatch I just wanted to be an Anonymous Penguin, one among many others.
As to the typo, try to get in touch with them, "Contact Us", top left of the page.

That's a cool story too..

As for contacting them, I intend to--I just don't know how much work it will be on their end and hesitate to bug 'em about something that was more or less my own fault...
