    Thank you Phil. I appreciate the new home.
    I seem to have picked up an ancient screen name in the transition (from early 90's) I more recently posted under Larry -- DH. Is there a way for me to change it? I poked around my profile page but didn't find a way.

    Hey we even have a Like button. It's the little things sometimes. But the big thing is a big thank you to Phil. He rescued this board when it need rescuing the first time and now the second. Like the TSBB, this board has a long history and there are a few of I see posting here who were here at least close to the beginning. There are some incredibly talented people who have contributed to this board over the years and I'm so glad to see it being given new life. Thanks Phil!

    Oooohhhhhhh!!!!!! Goody! Another forum I can lurk on. Not much action from Impetuous right now as life has hit the Admiral and I between the eyes with a sledge hammer. My FIL is moving in with us and needs a bit of help so our sailing days will be curtailed quite a bit. C'est la vie.

    Thanks, Phil.
    What a great addition!
    Could we get this forum on the hide/unhide list, so I can add it to my logon profile?

    Done!

    I had forgotten that shared forums cannot be hidden, so they are always a part of your view.

    Question: I started to compose a new post but decided I wanted to start over, but the old composition keeps showing up and I don't know how to get rid of it to start new. What do I do? Thanks in advance.

    edit: Nevermind, I found the answer: the editing icon in the row across the top of the posting box of a floppy disc is titled "drafts". I clicked on that and selected "delete draft"

    You can backspace over it, highlight it then click your delete key, or if all else fails, quit your web browser and relaunch it. Any of those should work.
