If there is a quick fix for getting teachertool to pull usernames that
start with numbers( well, the whole thing is a number, actually) I would
really appreciate it.  For this year I do not see a convenient way to
change 600+ usernames to include an alpha at the beginning.  I mean I
know I could do it with a batch script physically, but it is the
relearning for the kids that I do not want to deal with
