[Dang! That's no fun... I'll have to stick with "Crusader" then, and forget my dreams of internet notoriety as "The Corpulent Curmudgeon" (as even Curmudgeon is ten letters!).
LOL. Well, even if no one else does, you and I will enjoy this thread!
Actually, you may be ok. In here, you could use an underscore and you don't really spend much time in "the channel" anyway. If you run into a name limitation here, just let Mouser know. I'm sure he would be delighted to rewrite the forum software so you could have a different nick.
