Machines don't have ids, silly person. The id, along with the ego and super-ego are functions of the human mind.

Magics! Also, I see your point. There are many results about Machine IDs, but nothing on the machine's id.

Joy!

pban92: chuck 2: google what price?
Google, Inc. stock is currently trading for $410.90

Also, if you want better answers, try clarifying your question, or provide some context.

Arabic version:
He who knows not and knows not that he knows not, is a fool
He who knows not and knows that he knows not, is ignorant
He who knows and knows not that he knows, is asleep
He who knows and knows that he knows, is a wise man

Wondering...how about who knows that he knows not but act smarty pant like he knows, what to call him..? computing.net wannabe expert? lmao

Got a scratch idea about machine ID from here http://www.mathworks.co.uk/support/...

I'd call him incapable of reading your mind.

There are several:

The machine ID is a unique number/letter identification made up of the user/owners name and the identification of several other installed components such as the operating system and CPU identifier and I believe the NAT card Identifier as well and the motherboard

It can be viewed by going to the System Properties
( My Computer > Properties) and looking under the registered owner...the 20 digit String is your computer ID..

It cannot be changed or altered. Doing so would cause computer to stop responding and cause windows to become unactivated...similar to changing too many hardware devices.

What you might be referring to is the computer name an it
It can be viewed and changed by going to
My Computer > properties > Computer Name tab and you will see the Full Computer Name to change it click the change button.

For networking purposes the computer ID is your MAC or Physical address and can be found by:

start > run and type cmd enter
and in the command prompt type ipconfig /all and look for the 12 digit code for the physical address.

FYI, Everest is obsolete. Try SIW.exe instead. Get it at the link below.
