Greetings Bill:

You of course are welcome to joining the RF Cafe forum. Based on your background, your inputs should be quite valuable.

Registration is encouraged, but not required. If you had difficulty with registration, it might have been due to not entering the visual confirmation code properly. It is case-sensitive, so please try again and observe upper and lower case characters per the displayed code.

I had to implement the visual confirmation just last week because malicious software robots crawl the Web looking for forums to join to stage attacks at a later time. I found three that had "joined" and deleted them, then implemented the visual confirmation. It is an unfortunate reality of online existence. Like I mentioned in my post, I wouldn't shed a tear over more of the :smt013 spammers getting knocked off like that one in Russia.

Thanks for writing.
