The p90x workout schedule exercise is incredibly powerful. It is simple to set yourself for failure with all the this exercise program, as enthusiasm generally begins to fail following a week. That’s where the P90X worksheet will come in.

I have been trying to fix this for months.. I have changed the Computer Name under the sharing area, however, the old name still shows up on the log on screen!!! AAARRRGHH Did the previous owner of this G4 change a system variable somewhere, somehow to forever display his name on the logon screen instead of the computer name???
