You're welcome, but please ask further questions on the mailing list.

If they're on different muds, just put them in separate documents. If  
they're on the same mud, you can use the "username" variable to tell  

@@if username == "Fred" then
say Hello, I'm Fred!

say Hey, it's Joe!
say My name is $(username)$.

It's also possible to get the display name of the account in order to  
switch on that, but there's no shortcut, so it's rather verbose:

@@local c = arg.linkable:config()
@@local accountKey = c:objectAtPath(configPath("SelectedAccount"))
@@if c:objectAtPath(configPath("Accounts", accountKey, "name")) ==

Copy the connection (.mwcon) document over. If you're not using one,

   - The F-key in question

You should see a symbol-in-square missing-glyph symbol appear to  
stand for the F-key.

(Yes, I know it ought to be easier than this.)
