18 hours after joining this site my email account is blown up with notifications, at least 2 pages worth, an ear full of complaints from the wife about that damn fog horn, and not even an auto reply from admin with a welcome......SMH

Hi Tapemeasureman
Welcome to the site.
New members are usually welcomed by the members when they start posting and as a free site we do not have a large admin resource.
Regarding the notifications this is something you can control from your PC settings. I suspect at present they are set to receive a notification whenever a post is made to the site. You can change this to just advise you of topics of interest which should help restore harmony with your wife.

Live long and prosper

Hi Tapemeasureman (Hoorah for Control C - Control V!!)😉,
Welcome aboard! I see you are getting the measure of it!
To filter your notifications go to your Account and click on 'Notification settings# (surprise!). There you can select what you want and deselect the rest. You can kill the foghorn by clicking on 'Toggle sound' in the top right hand corner.
Personally I like it! Means I can get on with something else and the PC will 'Honk' to alert me when something comes in 😉
Cheers Doug 😎
