Hi there Alan. :hello: Glad to have you here at Android Forums.
Just so you know, AF was having some technical difficulties yesterday, so your intro thread may have just been submitted at the wrong time and just didn't get posted.
Anyway, you're here now, so hopefully we can help you with any issues/problems you're having. If there's some way we can be of assistance, just let us know - we'd be happy to help.
Enjoy the forums, and happy new year to you as well! :cheers:
