There were about ten new accounts pending in the forum - sadly while my desktop computer was down (and my only means to get online was a non-secure system) I could not get at my email ... and that is where the notices go that there are new members pending.
OK, I got access to my email again and flipped the switches to activate your accounts. My apologies for the delay. I look forward to hearing from you all soon here on the Al Dohral forum.
KUDOS to all.
