Ask @welbog, I mean, @welboug, wait, I mean @susan. Rats, I mean @www.biglaser.net. –  tvanfosson Oct 13 '09 at 21:54

Click on your username at the top of the page. Just to the left of the gray user-information area, you will see a link to 'edit'. There you can change your username.

The details in the UI may have changed a bit since the previous answers were posted, but they're still mostly right.

Thank you! I swear when I clicked my user name (several times) only a popup window appeared with my activity/privileges/log out thing. It was about 30 minutes ago. But now it is working differently, opens my profile page. –  nagylzs Sep 27 '12 at 19:57
    
Man you're old. Or young. Is that big Endian or small Endian? –  Ben Brocka Sep 27 '12 at 19:58
