Here it is, the first entry on this bulletin board. I've wanted to put a board on my site for years, but never really got around to it. Anna found this wonderful program called Greymatter, so I thought I'd give it a shot. (She got it from Michael Van Vleet, who probably got it from someone else, and so it goes. A man named Noah Grey invented it, and his website is, irony aside, noahgrey.com)

Knowing me, I will fuss over the configuration and templates for weeks or months, so don't get used to the way things look and work. The basic elements of the board are entries, comments, karma, and authors. If you are an author, you can create a new entry, which is a new bulletin on the bulletin board. If you are not an author, you are restricted to the other two author powers only: Posting comments after existing entries, and adding karma, which is + if you like or agree with what was said and - if you dislike or disagree. If you want to be an author, send me an email message (weaverx@hotmail.com) with a password that you'd like, and I'll set it up for you. I ask my users to please use their first and last names, no anonymous names here.

You can use HTML commands and swear all you want. This board is run by me and will reflect my policy beliefs (such as no anonymous usernames), but it belongs to everyone who uses it. Post to it as often as you want. As of now, I plan to post to it every day, but time and my schedule may undermine that plan. Thanks for visiting!

Congratulations on your new outing.

For the record, I wasn't the person who chose Greymatter for SignalStation. That informed decision was made by my partner, Amanda. She knows more about these things than I do. She figured out how to put a site together and I keep it full of comics and comments.

Anyway, things are looking good. Best of luck locating a color scheme. Keep on keepin' on. Catch you on the flip-flop. Uh, bye.
