How does Tortoise Determine the Author?

From: s1ntax <etheriad_at_gmail.com>

Im running windows vista and my login name is "s1ntax". When i make a
commit to my repository, it sets the author as "s1ntax". This is
working as expected. However, I need to be able to change the name of
my author from "s1ntax" to "Sean-Development" because I am working in
a professional environment. I need to follow the naming conventions of
my employer ( {FirstName}-{Department} )

I tried going in through the control panel and changing the name of my
account which I think just changes the display name and doesnt
actually change the user name throughout the system. I dont want to
create a new user and transfer my files/settings, i dont have enough
space for that and the time to do it would make it kind of silly.

I also want to avoid making any changes to the Subversion server, and
unfortunately the server doesnt have SSH installed. So i cant connect
via svn+ssh://Sean-Development@my.repo.sito.ry

Is there any way to spoof my author name on the client side? Maybe
fool tortoise into thinking my windows user name is Sean-Development,
or to be able to completely overwrite where the Author is derived

Any help would be awesome. I really dont want to have to use their
crappy 512mb ram laptop just because of a silly naming convention
(which makes perfect sense from their point of view ... but still) :(
