    Hey, so I logged into my terminal today and it displays:

    zipcuff:~ 'shortname'$

    instead of my computer name. What's going on here? is this normal?

    Is this persistent? Maybe something just set your prompt style.

    Try 'set prompt="%m:%~ " '

    Pretty sure there is a prefs item in the Terminal app that allows you to pass which ever prompt settings you want to whichever shell you want to use.

    It's not persistent in the way that it happens everytime, but it is happening enough that it is worrying me that something is wrong. if i reset the prompt it brings it to the right shell. I was just wondering what the Zipcuff shell is for.
