Not sure if this is the correct place for my query but here goes......how can I change my signature? I can get up to where is says "edit about me" but cannot seem to figure out the next step.
Thanks in anticipation. Dave

Actually Dave... no, it's not the right place. You put your question in an existing thread on a totally different topic. The right thing to do is to start a NEW thread with your question. I've done that for you.
Do you know how to start a new thread??? If not you click on the NEW POST button on the top left hand side of the index of threads in the forum you want to start a new thread in.
The answer to your question is:
Click on "UserCP" on the menubar
Click on "Edit Signature" on the left side navigation.
That's all there is to it.

Thank you Sir! I am as dumb as dog doodoo when it comes to doing computer stuff even though I use them all day every day as tools to run frequency analyzers, pulse systems etc but, when it comes to actually making them do something or change a setting etc. dumb as.
When I started it was all valves, then the first transistor came along about as big as your little finger in a tiny glass bottle painted black, we all knew they'd never amount to anything! Then intergrated circuits and thick films. I got out of the trade when stuff started coming through with complete circuits printed onto a plastic sheet and rolled up like a kebab and held together with a plastic paper clip with an edge connecter soldered into a mother board.
Now we are all dependant on this technology for everything, it would be a good time to invade a few countries. A few strategic magnetic pulse bombs in the stratosphere and everything shuts down. It won't effect valve stuff however, I might get my old job back!!

And I'll lose mine. The world is like a shark, it must move forward or it dies.
I'm your age and jumped on the computer bandwagon in 1983 -- it turned out by luck that I was riding the right horse. Nothing wrong with valves or tubes in the right application. There's always a need for that expertise.
Learning computers is like learning everything -- you have to invest the time and make a zillion mistakes along the way.
