Reading Information
Click on "Board index" at the upper left of any webpage. This will take you to the index of general headings, listed down along the left.

Click on any heading of interest, which will display another listing (there may be only one item in the "list"). Each item in this list is an "announcement" or "topic" of discussion. Click on an item and you will see one or more messages, which people have posted.

You can always click on "Board index" to get back to the index of general headings.

Registering
You will have to register if you want to post messages.

Click on "Register" at the upper left of any webpage. Fill out the form. Please use your real name as the "username." The answer to the question, "What are we Saving?" is: windows. Click "Submit" at the bottom. You will receive an email to confirm your registration.

Logging In
When you visit this Forum you will have to log in to post messages. Click on "Log in" at the upper left of any webpage.

Posting Messages
At the Board Index, click on a heading of interest.
Click on a Topic of interest.
Click on the "Post Reply" button at the left top or bottom of the webpage.

Or, click on the "New Topic" button to start a new topic of discussion.

Write your message in the little text editor that pops up.

Before clicking "Submit" at the bottom of the webpage, make a copy of your text.
Sometimes your message may be lost when you click "Submit," because something somewhere on the internet does not work correctly. To avoid this, BEFORE CLICKING SUBMIT be sure to select and copy your message to your system's clipboard, and possibly even paste that copy into a word processing file. This way you will have a backup if something goes wrong. This is especially important if you are writing an extensive message. If this happens to you, you may be able to recover by clicking the "Back" button on your internet browser, which MAY take you back to the webpage where you were writing your message with your text intact.
