It is with great trepidation that I enter this lion's den. (I do have some good news that I would share.)
Figuring out the structure and protocols of this most formidable website is beyond me. I can barely
use e-mail (just barely), and I am already mystified and uncertain how, or whether, to proceed.
Here is how it is. I signed up to join the ATS community using my own pc, which has a unique
number-name of its own. I received a response via e-mail containing my password assignment.
The ATS e-mail response also specified the number-name of a computer, but it is not my pc.
It does not even resemble the number-name of my pc.
Is this normal? Is it kosher? Or do I detect the whiff of something rotten in the state of Denmark?
Oh, what I call a "computer number-name" is referred to in the e-mail as an "IP address,"
if that helps any.
Does the failure of the two IP addresses to correspond reveal that my first-ever, brand new
ATS account has already been "hacked?"
If one among the more compassionate regulars or old hands could reassure me, this
fledgeling will be much obliged to you for your courtesy.
p.s. This is my first contribution to the giant conversation. 19 to go (if I find my wings). Then
I may have something wonderful to tell.
