Hi Steve and the Gang!

Just the usual "Hello World" first post and to report that I've finally been able to register using a user name and password as from around 15:00h BST today.

Kind Regards

Hello Simon. I saw your message on the newsgroup and I was curious what was preventing your registration here. Presumably it wasn't anything too challenging, so welcome aboard.

Hi Guys,

Not sure what was going on to be honest. I did get a "Security Error" message at one point but I just didnt recieve the registration emails, nor did it indicate that they were being sent.

My conclusion was that the registration process simply wasn't working for me.

KInd Regards

As we know, all of this stuff has a TON of inertia, and by the time I was done I just didn't have any steam left to go around pushing it. There's no way that those whose job is to know about authentication don't already know about it.

Hi All! Long time listener of Steve, even before SN (with his guest appearences on TechTV). Quick question, with this forum, is there any good way to "subscribe" &/or get email notifications pushed out to me when there are new posts/threads? Thanks! Keep up the great work Steve!

Hi Jay! (And welcome, all!!) Yes... there's a "Watch" button at the top of the page. You can click it, then choose to receive eMail notifications for any threads and/or forums whose content you wish to "watch". Since I'm not a fan of "forum spam", I have turned these things OFF by default for new members. I may create a greeting eMail to explain that.
