Hi joechl and welcome to JavaRanch. We don't have too many rules here but there are only two we enforce with vigor. First is be nice! No problem there as your post met that requirement very well! The second rule is that you must follow our naming standard and sadly you didn't follow that rule. But don't you worry! You can fix that problem easily by going to your profile and changing your display name to be a first name followed by a space followed by your last name. Thanks! We look forward to seeing you around the ranch.
