I moved, logging in with different computers?

I've just recently moved and will be using a couple different computers to log in for the foreseeable future, thus different ip addresses. Is this ok and do I have to notify you mods?

Thanks for your help in this very stressful time.

Unless you report someone else is logging in as you, showing up under a different IP address isn't a problem.

The problem is when more than one account shows up with the same IP address.

The mods may force you to move back into your old place.

Yes! you must use the same PC, same network card, through same router (if you have one), through the same service your entire life, and don't even think of re-booting for fear of an IP address change!

Wow Scott, what a quandary!

I doubt if anyone logs in on two different computers, like work and home for instance.

One time I logged in from my grandparents's house, and Geoff called Interpol. I'm still trying to get my grandmother out of a French prison.

that is pretty funny. i just saw my new title too. at least i can laugh at my situation even though deep down i am miserable. newbies will bug out when they see that.

i'll see if the new owners of my house will let me just rent out a space for my pc and be able to log in there at least once a day. they should go for it considering what heartless, penny pinching bastards they were when we closed!

Only the cool kids get custom titles. Congratulations on being accepted into the secret club. Tell CK 'hi' for me.

Mine should either say "unbannable" or "waiting to be banned".

Sorry. Asking for it back immediately eliminated any chance of you getting back into the cool kid club
