Cool Anonymity
A lot of people like to be completely anonymous in online forums while others don't mind so much. Remember that if you attach images of your sleep reports, SleepyHead output etc, they may well have your full name and other details on them. I've had a number of cases recently where I've had to delete attachments for people. But once they'e out there on the internet they are there forever, in some server somewhere.

If you don't want these details made public, please ensure you erase them before uploading.

A simple image program can easily remove any unwanted text without having to remove it from the software. MSPaint is easy to use as is Irfanview, a free software (which is what I use). Just color over the text or cut it.

RE: Anonymity
With Sleepyhead, the user info is mostly shown right at the top of the image, so by simply cropping the image you can take that stuff out.

If anybody needs help doing this with an Apple computer, or any help with images at all, feel free to PM me. I'll walk you though it.

RE: Anonymity
I understand that some people want to remain anonymous.
At the same time, I'd like to appeal to everybody to check their profiles and, at least as a minimum, indicate the country and state or province of residence. Regulations and availability vary between countries and it would be often helpful to be able to georeference posted information and advice. As it is, I'm (at the moment) not sure if Paul (DeepBreathing) is from Ontario Canada or Australia or maybe some other country that happen to have a place named Perth...

I put it to Google and the answer was: Your search - uʍop-ǝpᴉsdn ǝʇᴉɹʍ ʎǝɥʇ ǝsnɐɔǝq ɐᴉlɐɹʇsn∀ ɯoɹɟ sᴉ ǝuoǝɯos ɟᴉ llǝʇ sʎɐʍlɐ uɐɔ no⅄ - did not match any documents.

Suggestions:
Make sure that all words are spelled correctly.
Try different keywords.
Try more general keywords.
Try fewer keywords.

Zonk, since you're down-under, you should have been able to read the upside-down sentence. Are you posting from the northern hemisphere perhaps? Too-funny
