      Hey Kim,

      I wonder if the name will be an issue for others. As I recall you never did a patnet but if you did the patnets are all brought into the new board but can be updated. Since I joined the MRF with the same name I had on my patnet, I was able to update that but keep all the old information since they are already linked. I’m not sure if this will be an issue for others. If you joined the MRF with the name Kimmer that may be why you have to post with that name. If you tried to have KimJ as your name and it wouldn’t let you. I wonder if there was already a KimJ. I wonder if this will be an issue for a lot of people (the name one). That may be something to address with the MRF. Take care, Carver
