Distinguish a computer from an other

    I pass my time to change from my PC to my laptop and viceversa. There is some subtility to change for each. Is there is an object or a trick for distinguish them easily?

      i hack it with keeping a name.txt file in root drive with name of pc then loadbang it on startup, this also allows for simulating the other machine.

      I can think of several options. Ie you could write a Java- class that outputs the MAC adress of your networkadapters. They are unique. Or - without scripting- write an abstraction that simply puts out that a name or number when banged. Modify that absraction slightly so that it put out a different name on each machine... Jan

      another way: often people will have named their root drives differently across several computers. You could easily check for those names.
