    Default OT: Help with my nick?

    Happening once last week I thought it was a fluke, but I just noticed
    after replying to Wayne's Green Godess tell that instead of PickyJaz
    at msn dot com, I show up here with the not-nick of
    rec.food.baking??? How is that possible and how do I fix it? Is it a
    silly that can happen because I use Google as my newsreader? Am I the
    only one that see it? I haven;t a clue how to use anything but Google
    for a newsreader, but I do certainly welcome a treacher.

    Hmm; sounds as though your newsgroups settings are a little misplaced;
    but I can definitely see it.

    I use TB, not google for my newsreader, sorry.

    Why not get a real newsreader first?

    Bake a batch of delicious cookies (we already know that you are an
    *expert* on that!). Take 'em down to the Marines, except for one dozen.
    Ask those nice young men if one of them knows how to fix your problem.
    Take him home and let him fix it. Give him the last dozen cookies to
    take with him.

    If you are using Windows get Outlook Express (free). Or get Agent. Sign
    up with a news server like Giganews or eternal-september.

    It looks as if Forte has "retired" Free Agent and are only offering
    commercial Agent. Still, it's a good little newsreader for $30 and
    their email tech support is very responsive.

    Agent is a good one. Free Agent no longer exists except as warez.

    Exactly! You've offered a perfect solution. I just took some apple
    cinnamon scones out of the oven, and the "sink salad" with dressings
    of both Penzeys' Creamy Peppercorn and their Green Godess have also
    been blended to go with. I have one Marine that is always looking to
    be fed something more wholesome than sweets, and since I already know
    he lives aboard in the barracks, I'll bet he'd go for a pretend to
    take a few scones home for his (imaginary) wife & kids...;-)

    Thank you all for Newsreader suggestions, as well.

    I have 9 versions, which would you like.

    Anyone of these three are a great starter, a32.192 is very basic, I'm
    sure you'd like it.

    a32-192.exe
    agentenu330-846.exe
    agentenu400-1071.exe
