    Hello, everyone. Some of you will already know me. I was active on this site from August 2007 to a few months ago, when I left for two reasons: (1) I was spending too much time on the site, and (2) I had accidentally routed some e-mail messages to acquaintances through my "Calboner" account and was alarmed at the possibility of their tracing the name to my identity on this site (or one of the others where I had photos posted at the time). Since then, I have figured out that so far as I have a problem of wasting time on the Web, it doesn't really matter what sites I visit, and as far as anyone's discovery of my "Calboner" identity is concerned, either that damage is done or (more likely) it is not, and in either case it doesn't make much difference if I put pictures up again. So I'll be doing that soon.

    I probably won't be posting to this site as much as formerly, but I have been looking in on the site without logging in, and I am glad to see a lot of people whose posts I enjoy reading are still active -- as, of course, are a lot of people whose posts make me grind my teeth, but that comes with the territory, doesn't it?

    Thanks for the words of welcome, everyone.

    Catch, I am glad to see that you are answering questions in your thread again. At the time that I left, in April, you had been silent for a while and I was afraid that there would no longer be anyone of whom I could ask stupid questions. I've just been over there and now I'll read your answers to my last questions.

    And yes, Ready, that's me in the avatar photo. Glad that you liked it. I'll put some photos in my gallery soon. :biggrin:

    Nice having you back...I understand about the Email thing-- just wasn't paying attention when I was sent something funny and forwarded it on-- forgot to change the received name so it went out to all
