anon****** and I can't change it
anon****** and I can't change it

I just want to change my anon******** name given to me by Ares to something else anononymous. as for the service, no problems really, use port 71,80 or 1157. 80 seems to be the least reliable as 71 and 1157 are about equal, with 1157 winning most of the time
