Yes, we will have to register with Yahoo! in order to gain access to the web
pages of Z_Scale and all former eGroups sites. Yahoo! purchased eGroups.com
a while ago and is now converting eGroups.com accounts. All eGroups.com
lists have been converted in the last week.
Attention, you don't have to answer all the questions that Yahoo! asks.
Here are the questions that you will be asked:
* Please choose a Login Name for your Yahoo! account.
This can be anything that you want, even your eGroups login...
* Please specify a Password.
No surprise here...
* Please specify a Password Question.
Confirm your password...
* Please specify 4 digits for your birth year.
They want a date, so give them a date, whatever you want, make yourself
young again :-)
* Please specify an Email Address.
I gave them the same address I use for Z_Scale...
* Please specify your Gender.
Now's your chance to choose your sex, I had hoped that I could have
answered, "Yes! or Sure, anytime!"
* Please specify your Industry.
I answered "Other" since they don't need to know what industry I work
* Please specify an Occupation.
I also answered "Other" since they don't need to know what I do either!
ATTENTION! Make sure that you UNCHECK the box asking if you want to receive
promotions etc. I don't need any more 'offers' from Yahoo! or anyone else.
I understand that this proceedure is a pain but it is the price we have to
pay for FREE hosting. Once you've gotten through their questionaire you can
have a look at our 'Main' page.
