Customizin Remote Web Access:  How to display Computer Description instead of computer name

Hi guys,
There is always someone with a good answer on this forum so I though I'd share my dilema here.
I have an SBS 2011 server with Remote Web access enabled and working. I assigned each user their workstation so they can remote in from home. I have added a description to each computer following this format: "%firstname%'s Computer"... so for John Hancock i would have "John's Computer"
On the  remote web access page  in the "Computers" section it will display the host name of the computer.
Is there any way to customize this to show the computer description instead of the computer name?
While looking around I found that all the config files for this feature are stored under: C:\Program Files\Windows Small Business Server\Bin\WebApp\RemoteAccess\BuiltIns\RDP

However If it is indeed possible I don't know which file to modify.
Any ideas?

Unfortunately that is not possible. The web part is a lost that does a query in real time and the query is not editable and does not request that field.

Although it's not what I wanted to hear, it is the answer to my question.
Thank you very much!
