Just before I do you put 'nick names' at the top of your messages? Mine always comes out as my full name. 10 bottles of sherry on the wall, 10 bottles of sherry If one of the bottles should happen to fall....9 bottles of sherry on the wall Dianne


Lewella Report 9 Feb 2006 07:49

I wanna know that too Dianne! Don't wanna be known by boring old married name! Lew Lew


Lewella Report 9 Feb 2006 07:54

Just a doggone minute! How many bottles are left??? Off to the naughty corner with you! Lew Lew (this time it wasn't me Lara - honest)


Trifley Report 9 Feb 2006 07:54

Maybe 'Linga longa' can tell us how to do it. There are some fascinating and clever names and it all adds some fun to the otherwise dull day. Dianne (aka Sherry soak)


Lewella Report 9 Feb 2006 07:59

Perhaps we should just call you 'Wine Trifle' Lew Lew

Hi Wattlers Dianna firstly welcome to this thread, your bound to get a few laughs. Now you and Lew Lew wanted to know how to change your name when you leave a message well you go into My Account Details thats on the left hand side. then you have to insert your password. After you do that it will come up with my Details. You then put whatever you want a a first name instead of your real one, then you change your last name to something. and then you save changes. Hope this helps. Susan yes diet is going along fine, gradually getting used to water but still are not drinking the amount I am supposed to but I am managing about 4 glasses so I figure 4 glasses is better than nothing. Cheers Sue

Dianne and Lew Lew, Go to my account details - left of screen and enter your account (hope you remember your password :) Change your first name and surname with any combination, even a * will do. Then scroll down a short way and hit save. Don't worry about middle names or maiden names, they don't count. Lew lew, I'm not sure I should tell you this info :0 Vonny oh well, Devily got there first. Just a word of warning: please make sure that you always sign messages with your 'real' name so everyone knows it is you. There has been a lot of probs with 'incognito' and peeps are really 'not happy Jan' if you try to trick. Sorry, hope that didn't sound preachy. just don't want you to upset anyone accidently Vonny


Aussieone Report 9 Feb 2006 08:04

Ha Ha hello Vonny I just pipped you at the post to tell Lew Lew and Dianne how to change their name, Ooh well Im sure they will get the message lol. Cheers Sue

The DFO shops sound great but hubby & I are going to Norfolk Island in September so I am madly saving for all the duty free shopping. My husband says going to Norfolk is the only way he can get me off the computer so he can talk to me. Little does he know i intend to troll the cemetery and official records while over there in case any of my rels were naughty. It would be a change to have a convict in the family...I am getting sick & tired of finding all the rels who were born on 'the other side of the blanket'. Well I will be off now ( my sherry glass needs refilling) I will talk to you all again. 'Bye WT
