Signing UP is VERY easier. Its actually easier than signing up for the list serve! All you have to do is choose a user name, a Password, and enter your email address. The rest of the options are not required, and you can change them later. Click here to open the registration page in a new window, enter the information and you are ready to post! Posting is very simple, just got to the appropriate section and Click Post new topic. To reply to a thread simple press the reply button. What is a PM you ask? A PM is a Private Message. This board can handle all your messaging needs. It works just like email. Please remember though, you inbox can only hold 100 messages so you will need to clear them out every once in a while. Finnally, IF you still have questions you can email me at Bradley@laserforum.org or send me a PM and I will be glad to help. I hope you will find this as a great alternative to the List Serve.
