If my computer crashes

This computer I have is very old. A Windows 98, so I don't know how much longer it will keep going or even how I could get a new one. I'd kind of like to keep in touch with everyone here, maybe through a library computer if that happens or some other way, hopefully.
Could I put my actual email address on my profile maybe? I hope I'll be able to keep coming here, even with a different computer.
Thanks, Dayna

I guess it doesn't make a big difference, if people know it. I still get things from weirdos anyway.

Dayna, could I suggest you remove the email link.

The reason is you'll get spammed to heck (if not already). Software agents called spiders go a roamin through the e-glenn looking for emails. if you must use that one then at least break it up eg use at instead of @ and use plenty of space or words like removethispart see Zee's webmaster email link at the bottom of the webpage.

If you must then use a temporary email sucvh as yahoo or google so that your main email is kept more private, then you can email friends with your real email.

It's possible to use the forum to send private mail (pm) as I discovered only yesterday. I think you use the messages link at the top.
