MD56.  I spent a few hours deciding what I would use as a user name, back when dial up was the only access to the web.  Picking a unique user name can come by accident or even inspiration.  Initials, important dates, animal names or locations can help create easy to remember and quite personal user names that can be used in every site you choose to join, that can make it easier and even fun.

Welcome to BC !


Don't let it worry you, you will soon get the hang of it. If you have a problem or question just start a topic in what you think is the most relevant forum section, if you can offer help to someone, write a post. And nobody will bite your head off !

This is a great forum.  I've been looking stuff up here for years.  Finally joined as member today.  Seems like the folks are very nice.


If you need help with something just follow the rules for posting and someone seems to reply quickly.....and seems to me like there is little to no "bad" advice.  In other words, the moderators keep up with the posts and step in to correct neophyte "information".


Good Luck,
