Today when I logged into Terminal, I saw that instead of my regular name along with the bash prompt, it said unknown00231224c68c. I checked my Computer and network names under Settings> Sharing. (I have Web sharing enabled and and my computer's website is also called "00231224". I do not know why this is happening. I took a screenshot of it so you guys can see what's happening.Screen Shot 2012-05-15 at 9.51.12 PM.png
