      I would start by checking out some of the forums. For instance Vista and Other Browsers.

      Welcome to the Lounge Allan, we have been told to be on our best behaviour when you are around

      You could try to find out whether Jezza is the new name for Jerry B — or vice versa!

      BATcher

      Plethora means a lot to me.

        People whose profiles show that they have never changed their name should be careful about throwing stones at glass houses. Or something!

          How about snowballs in igloos…..nope that won’t work I was just trying to be topological topical

          I wonder what the criteria is for one’s profile to accurately reflect a name-change? My own profile incorrectly states that I have no name change history to report. I last changed my Lounge name back in 2002(ish) when I dropped the name of my then-newly-appointed ex-husband from my profile. But it hasn’t been nearly that long since the Lounger formerly known as John Grey changed his name. I’d have thought we’d be able to see that historical event.

          Does the name history only reflect changes since the switch to WS?

            If we’re talking about the same chap, he didn’t actually change his name, rather he re-invented himself. (JohnGray > BATcher)

            It shows changes made since the Lounge switched to the IPB forum software.

              Awww, shoot, I thought I had ya! You helped me do some work back in 2005 on some PDF files and I thought there might be some identifying info in them, but no such luck. AND, I don’t remember ‘cuz I’m old! (AND, I won’t tell what the work was because of all the BIRD haters round abouts! )

              I wonder whatever happened to those birds. Maybe we should start a new thread on them

              This is neat. There are nesting osprey in Peterborough Ontario, as well, but they have gone south, as we all wish we could do.

              No idea, but I’m gonna take a guess…..

              Tezza?

              Or maybe Terry?

          People whose profiles show that they have never changed their name should be careful about throwing stones at glass houses. Or something!

          She does look rather tough doesn’t she (I think its’ the eyebrows).
          I’ve had several pics in the lounge over the years.
          Changing the picture usually coincides with with a new ‘puter.

            The return of the demure and fetching picture. Yey!

            The lower picture is often called Rosie the Riveter, but the real one is by Normal Rockwell (and there the lady looks irrepressibly sneering). Read all about it!

        Might you please pass on a message to Allan Richardson, letting him know that I apologize on behalf of The Lounge for the terrible set of responses to his first post?
        Although why they volunteered me for the job I’ll never know.

        P.S. I was rather fond of your original image, too.

      You could start off by buying everyone a choccy bar. That usually settles them down for a bit, at least until the need for caffein kicks in. Speaking of which……sorry had to grab my coffee!
