 At one point the Audiobus website had a problem logging users in with Google so I had to create a new account **@InfoCheck**. About 1/5 of my posts were under Paulinko and the rest were InfoCheck. I’m only using Paulinko for the wiki because I can’t login to the wiki with my InfoCheck account. My other musical online based identity is the PLU Collective named in honor of a friend who passed away from cancer a couple of years ago. At one point the Audiobus website had a problem logging users in with Google so I had to create a new account **@InfoCheck**.
