Hi Imam, your photo was huge so I reduced it and posted it next to your introduction on this page: http://baw2010participants.pbworks.com/Participants3
You can stop receiving the wiki messages by clicking on a link given at the bottom of these messages. The link says: Manage your notification settings

Dear Moderators,
Unfortunately I oculd not attend the Tapped In Sessions. Of course, I'll look for the recordings and all that. This is my second Baw so I did not answer the questions in the YG - Is it a problem? What I mean is, I recognize this CAN be a problem because what usually happens to me is : I "know" how to do things, I am a risk taker but then I may find it difficult to go through the step by step instruction; I'm, in this case, more hands on. Thank you!

Hi Qilmar, don't worry about not being able to attend TI, there's a regular tour almost every week, just check the calendar. If you know the answers to week 1 questions, that's the essence, no need to write them in the yahoo group - you've reached our mutual target.
