How do I register?
You MUST register to post messages and replies. Click on the Register Icon at the top of every page and fill in the requested information. A username, password and valid email address are required, the other items are optional. A confirmation email message will be sent immediately to the email address you provide. All new registrations are screened by an administrator to minimize spamming. If your registration is approved you will receive an email within 24 hours. You will then be able to post messages. You must disable any restrictions on reception of email to allow the message to reach you. Print the email message as a record of your chosen username and password in case you forget the information later. Choose your username carefully, it cannot be changed later. Do not use your email address as a username.

I forgot my username and/or password. What can I do?
If you know your username but not your password, go to the login screen and click on the "Forgot my Password" link. Follow the prompts. If you forgot your username, you are in big trouble. Use the Support link outlined in red at the top of any page to request assistance. Do not ask us for your password, only you know what password you used when you registered.
The system sent me a new password but I cannot log in?
Are you using the correct username? Did you activate the new password according to the instructions in the email message you received with the new password? Are you entering the password exactly as given you in all capital letters?
When I try to register, I'm told someone is already using my email address.
That someone is YOU. It means you are already registered under another username.
To set the correct time for your time zone:
While logged in, click on "User Control Panel" above. Then click on "Board Preferences" and scroll down to "Time Zone".
For East Coast DST, the setting should be "GMT-4", for Central DST the setting should be "GMT-5" etc.
If your area observes Daylight Savings Time check the yes button.
