  • I want to be first! (after Lisa of course)

    I want to be the first person (other than Lisa) to welcome everyone to the new message boards! This system has lots of cool features 8) which may take people a little bit to discover. Once you get comfortable, I am sure that you will appreciate this new system! Feel free to send me a "private message" if you have any questions that I might be able to answer on this new system.

    Thanks ... and have fun!

    - Tim

        Tim; I think adding the photograph was great!!
        Lisa, the new site is looking good. Kind of neat to see who else is on the message board at the same time. The survey tool is a nice tool.

        Happy Birthday Lori!!

          Thanks ... Anyone can add a photo. Just edit your profile by clicking the link above. At the very bottom of your profiles section, there is a place to add an "Avatar" (which is what the message board calls these little pictures). You can choose anything to be your avatar. Unfortunately, the image has to be located on another website. My image is located on my website (stewartweb.net). There are a number of public website which host generic images. If you have AOL Instant Messenger, for example, any of their icons can be used as avatars as well. Be creative! Have fun!

          Thanks, Tim

                  The new site is definately improved. I looked around some yesterday and tried to see it from a perspective of someone new to the world of HCM. It is very organized and informative. It should be a huge help to families new to this disease as well us old timers. Congatulations on a job WELL-DONE!
