Patrick, if you PM @tomic and explain he might change your username. I'm uncertain about the policy of name-change, so he'll have to tell if it's ok or not. You can try Dave_W also, since he's the site's editor. @tomic is not very active these days, so the best bet is Dave.

A username change is no problem at all, for those in need (remember, we once had a DrMabuse here, too). Just send me a PM with the new name, and I'll take care of it.

Edited to add: though it's important to remember that there are a bunch of posts referring to you as Patrick already.

Hi trogdor, and welcome to SFN!
Indignation is well and good in large doses, indeed tremendous doses, as well, but only if there is something legitimate to be indignebt about....

Good day,
My name is Chris. Finally registered after lurking for quite some time. Hope I can add something to the discussion and maybe start a few myself (although I'm usually content just to lurk). Thoroughly enjoyed reading this board so far. Keep it up!

Hi Chris and welcome!

Looking forward to your input.

I've been a "home-schooled" skeptic for about 48 years of my 60 years, but I've never in the past been a member or a skeptic organization or otherwise contributed to the skeptical community. This certainly does look like a place where I can be around like-minded people. My thanks to all who put this forum and Web site together!

Welcome to SFN HalfMooner. And speaking as one of the staff, you're very welcome.

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?

And me !

I haven't actually lived in another country, and have only travelled OS a handful of times, but I must say I kinda like it here...

My name is John, I'm an enginner/scientist and one of those guys who sometimes just doesn't know when to leave something the hell alone, be it a gadget of some sort, a piece of software, or some poor fool at a party who mentions that their homeopathic tratment is going really well.

I've been a skeptic pretty much as long as I can remember understanding what one was. It probably mostly stemmed from my love of science as a kid. Although, I do remember two books I had on the paranormal and such which, if memory serves, were presented in a seemingly scientific fashion, which I thought were very cool at the time. Seeing as I never throw anything out (much to my wife's frustration), I must try and dig them up, but I digress.

I was recommended to this site by one of your members, when I posted a question on another forum that wasn't being addressed. Thanks again Ricky. I've enjoyed my time here so far, and hope to contribute something worthwhile once in a while. Mind you, with a 22 month old and another on the way, my forum time tends to be a little sporadic. With what I've read here to date, however, that's unlikely to impact much on the availability of quality content.

John's just this guy, you know.

Hihi.

I just registered.

Well, not much else to say other than that.

PS. Why have my posts in all of a sudden all started being displayed in a small font? Does anyone know?

The British don't have an accent. That's just what English sounds like when its pronounced correctly.



Love that. And so true... although I wonder what a Brit would say about the various 'accents' within England. Anyway, I am going to tell that to my friend in Great Britian.
ps. it's awful when Americans slur words and say 'n' instead of 'ing' at the end of verbs as Ms. Clinton does, sound so illiterate.

Imagine us both in big leather lounge chairs (or perhaps you're reclining) before I say in a reassuring tone, "It's not your fault."

It seems to mostly happen when there are nested quotes. I'm using FireFox almost exclusively these days, and have noticed it a few times. Sometimes a reload fixes it, sometimes not. Must be a glitch in some code somewhere, or possibly a not-quite standard feature being rendered in a non-specific fashion. I just tried a couple of pages in IE, and the problem didn't appear there, although this is hardly conclusive proof, but it might suggest an IE specific bit of code that firefox has issues with. I'll do some more checking next time I get see it.
