Add yourself as a new user, log out and log in with your own username. For security reasons you may disable default admin user. Log out and log in with your new username.

1) Size of the post box: 16 lines
2) There is a debate whether to use one ping service, multiple ping services or none. I would start like under the radar with none. Later on, when my site gets momentum, I could add maybe one or two ping services: http://rpc.pingomatic.com/ or http://ping.feedburner.com/ and http://rpc.blogcatalog.com/.
