  5. Yes, I remember that you moderate a board, Lynn I had asked, on the "main" board, for everyone who I had listed - moderators, CUSH people, people who wanted to host a chat - to email me to get their passwords.

I figured that was a post that moderators would read, but I was apparently mistaken. Anyway, I'll PM you the password, Lynn. Thanks for asking about it

Remember - never, ever download an exe or a zip file even from someone you know unless you're absolutely, positive that they sent you this file. A good, up to date,
