That may not stay. I am experimenting with it. Everyone is more then welcome to play around with it if they want. Right now it is just in the testing stages.

If you go to your profile and start playing around you will see that you can drag the boxes around and move them like a windows based program. Don't ask me to much because I don't know anything more then you do about it yet.

You can set up your own homepage on the web site also. But jsut play with it now if you wish. Like I said it may not stay.

Neat for someone who wants to play with it. Personally it looks complicated but I just took a quick peak. By the way, what the heck are you people doing up at 3:30 am? :eek: I know you all work.

I love this new change . . . I for one hope it may stay. I've already customized my webpage with info, pics and even a blog entry.

Jake, just some friendly advise. It is not a good idea to put your email in the public eye like you did in your profile. That is how spammers get email addresses. There are spiders that can be created to search forums looking for email addresses like joe@joe.net.

One thing you can do is spell it out "infoATifixpcs.biz", or "info@ifixpcsDOTbiz" for example--that should defeat the spiders.

But I haven't heard much lately on how much I need ******, how some disposed South American dictator wants to give me half of his money in return for giving him my bank account numbers and some girl named LuLu really, really, really wants to meet me! :D :eek:

Rick . . .

How do I get "linked" to other cacher's profile page? I noticed you sent something requesting I add you to my Network section so I did . . . I put you in as a friend (hope that was OK.)

Also . . . is anyone else doing much with their profile page?

If you go to anyones profile page under their profile navbar there should something that says "Network with firefighterjake" or what ever there user name is. I hope this helps.

I think that I like the other profile page better. You could see where others where from and their bdays and such.:)

Yes that was one downfall to the new profile. But when I installed it, I did not realize all the downfalls to it. So like I said it may not stay.

I thought there was a section where you could add that info -- location and birthday . . . at least I filled out a section containing that info.
