    This is making it very difficult for me to use the logs properly because whenever I am chatting with someone instead of showing my screen name when I hit return with my line of text it shows my system name. I want it to show my screen name and not my name since I use 2 screenames and I can't tell which is which in the logs because it simply shows my name and not my screen name. Changing it to "view as handle" doesn't do anything, when I am chatting with someone my screen name isn't on the chat window.

    Is there any way around this?

    Click where is says your name on the iChat window, then click "View As Handle" - that should work, I think.

    Also, I would check the logs to make sure it is recording your actual name in the logs, as you say. I would imagine it would record the screenname as well, if not just the screenname.
