I opened a new acct since I couldnt remember the username and password I used before and knew no way to get ahold of an admin without rejoining. Can you look up my old posts and link to the new name. All I can remember was the email was seal.d1@att.net. Thanks

Ok, I say I'm good now, then I can't sign in again. Dan sorted it but my user name is plain old Russ now. I'm even more confused now.
